Managing Director of LADOL Joins UNICEF Inaugural Advisory Group

Press Release

Managing Director of LADOL, Dr. Amy Jadesimi, is one of the distinguished global leaders recently invited to join the inaugural Advisory Group for United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF).

UNICEF works in 190 countries and territories to save children’s lives, to defend their rights, and to help them fulfill their potential, from early childhood through adolescence. Their work covers a range of areas and initiatives including:

  • Working with partners around the world to promote policies and expand access to services that protect all children
  • Helping to reduce child mortality all over the world by working to reach the most vulnerable children, everywhere
  • Working around the world to support quality learning for every girl and boy, especially those in the greatest danger of being left behind
  • Being on the ground before, during and after emergencies, working to reach children and families with life-saving aid and long-term assistance
  • Working all over the world to empower girls and women, and to ensure their full participation in political, social and economic systems
  • Working with partners in every sector to co-create innovative solutions that accelerate progress for children and young people
  • Delivering sustainable access to life-saving supplies where they are most needed, accelerating results for the most vulnerable children
  • Carrying out rigorous research and thoughtful analysis about the situation of children across the world

Dr. Jadesimi was selected by UNICEF to join its Advisory Group as they recognized her as an important partner with unique expertise, who could help to expand UNICEF’s vital work to address the enormous challenges and rapidly changing environment faced by children across the world. The Advisory Group will serve as an independent sounding board and “think-tank,” to explore lessons learned and exchange fresh ideas and perspectives on top-line global issues and developments affecting children and young people worldwide. The inaugural meeting of the Advisory Group was held in New York at the United Nations Headquarters in the first week of May 2019.

 

Dr Jadesimi commented, ”It’s a great honour to be asked to join the UNICEF Advisory Group. Coming from Nigeria, a country where 41 % of the population is below the age of 15, I’m particularly keen to focus on improving the lives of young people. The innovations that UNICEF is already working on can transform billions of lives and help us achieve the UN’s SDG. I’m happy to assist in any way I can.”
