Paula Taylor and Nichkhun Horvejkul, the first two “Friends of UNICEF” for Thailand.

“Friends of UNICEF” is an initiative under which UNICEF Thailand works closely with a group of carefully selected celebrities from different industries to promote the rights of children and to recruit supporters to the cause.

Friends of UNICEF can help focus the public’s attentions on the most pressing needs facing children. They represent positive role models for young people and they show a strong and genuine interests in the issues that children are facing. Friends of UNICEF can make direct representations to those with the power to effect change. They can use their talents, their voices and fame to advocate for children, to encourage positive action and to mobilize resources to address the challenges they face.  In this way, they provide invaluable support to UNICEF’s mission to ensure the protection and fulfilment of every child’s right to health, education, protection, and equal opportunity. 

In May 2017, UNICEF has appointed four new Friends of UNICEF, including Kiatisuk “Zico” Senamuang, “Noodee” Vanessa Race, and “Peach” Pachara Chirathivat and “Mai” Davika Hoorne. Together with Paula Taylor and Nichkun Horvejkul – who have been Friends of UNICEF since 2013, the four celebrities will help UNICEF spread awareness of the challenges and vulnerabilities that still face millions of children in Thailand. Their first collaboration with UNICEF is in lending their support and their voices to the #FightUnfair campaign. This campaign will engage with the public to highlight the inequities facing children in Thailand, and call for public support and action to address these challenges and enable every child to have a fair chance in life. The Friends of UNICEF will highlight the importance of investing in early childhood development for every child, protecting every child from violence, ensuring inclusive education that brings every child to school, and helping every adolescent to remain healthy, informed and engaged.
