Would you like to make a genuine, long-lasting difference in the lives of children in need?

Become a Champion for Children today!

Champions for Children is a community of individuals whose regular contributions enable the most vulnerable children in the Philippines and worldwide enjoy the right to education, healthcare and nutrition, and protection from violence, abuse and exploitation.

Upon signing up, Champions will receive a welcome SMS or call to confirm their participation. Once confirmed, they will receive a welcome letter and leaflet from UNICEF Philippines National Ambassador Gary Valenciano.

Members of this caring community will gain a better understanding of how their contribution makes a difference in children's lives through project reports, and regular updates from beneficiaries and UNICEF staff. They will also receive certificates of appreciation, specially designed tokens and their very own Champions for Children ID.

Does UNICEF—an international organization with government and corporate partners—really need the support of individual Champions?

YES – UNICEF does not receive funding from the United Nations. We are funded solely by voluntary contributions, so every amount (no matter how small) counts!

When pooled together, regular donations made by individual donors like you add up to provide UNICEF with a steady and reliable source of funds. This kind of committed funding is necessary for us to sustain ongoing programmes and map out long-term strategies in the fight for children’s rights. It also allows UNICEF to respond quickly when and where the need is greatest, such as providing emergency relief in calamities and times of conflict.
