Paul Clark is a journalist and television presenter. He has been supporting UNICEF’s work with schools for over 10 years.
Shortly after being appointed as an ambassador Paul helped UNICEF to launch Day for Change, encouraging schools to collect loose change by hosting fundraising activities.
In 2005, he travelled to Banda Aceh, Indonesia, to see reconstruction work following the previous year’s tsunami. He returned five years later to see how public donations were being used to rebuild healthcare centres, schools and water sanitation systems.
Paul continues to advocate for UNICEF’s work with a focus on the Rights Respecting Schools Award. In April 2017, Paul visited St Mary’s High School in Newry, Northern Ireland, to present their Level 2 Rights Respecting School Award.
We take our education, safe drinking water, and edible food for granted. In so many places people are dying to live the way we do! I hope my role will help UNICEF to champion the rights of children everywhere in the world.
