Today’s selection is a video from UNICEF for #TeamUNICEF and the Galz and Goals programme in Namibia.
UNICEF is the United Nations Children's Fund. UNICEF works in 190 countries to promote and protect the rights of children. Their work is funded by the voluntary contributions of individuals, businesses, foundations and governments and not by the United Nations. Through contact with UNICEF, the lives of millions of children have been changed for the better.
From the YouTube page for this video:
This video for the song Goddess by up and coming US artist BANKS was inspired by UNICEF‘s work on promoting children’s rights through sport and play and the Galz and Goals programme in Namibia which helps disadvantaged adolescent girls make healthy decisions on and off the playing field.
Most of the girls who take part in Galz and Goals come from vulnerable families experiencing lots of social challenges. Indeed, many of the scenarios in the film are real challenges the respective girls have had to overcome in their own lives. Filmed on location in Windhoek, Namibia – including the Katutura township where the football scenes were filmed
