“I believe young people can make the world a better place and have the power to change it for the good.”

Cel was proudly appointed a UNICEF UK High Profile Supporter in May 2020, in recognition of his support for UNICEF programmes since 2016, and in particular, supporting and promoting young voices.

He is a strong advocate of UNICEF’s OutRight campaign, which empowers children and young people to realise their own rights and to speak out in support of the rights of all children.

Cel visited a school in Southwark to see how the children were learning about their rights and the rights of children all over the world, in particular those caught up in the refugee crisis in Bangladesh.

“The children at Charles Dickens Primary told me that every child has a right to safety and a right to family. They thought refugee children would be feeling ‘scared’, ‘stressed and depressed’ and ‘weak’ right now. The children in Year 2 wrote speeches and performed them in front of the class, voicing their opinions about the rights of refugee children.”

Cel has also attended and acted as host for the Halloween Ball to raise vital funds for children in danger. He has been involved in Soccer Aid for UNICEF, with football being one of his major passions and the values behind Soccer Aid for UNICEF of the right to play also a driving force in his support.

Cel amplifies his support across his social channels and media interviews, integrating UNICEF values into his daily life and vocalising his concern for the lives of children in danger everywhere.

Cel speaks to children at Charles Dickens School, London, on what it means to stand up for children’s rights.

Cel encourages young people to learn about their rights and ensure their voices are heard by decision-makers.

I joined a school taking part in OutRight in Parliament in March 2019 and saw first-hand how influential it is when children use their voices to call for change — there really is nothing more powerful.
