We Are The Generation

We are the generation that has lived through some of the greatest moments in history. We listened as Martin Luther King shared his dream, witnessed Concorde’s first flight, saw man walk on the moon and looked on as the Berlin wall fell and history was made. It’s been a time of firsts and greats and our generation has seen it all.

Fill in your details above to take a personalised look at exactly where you were when these momentous events took place, and what was happening for Unicef and the world’s children. Do you know how old you were when England beat West Germany in the World Cup? Do you know why, when and where Unicef began? Request a personalised video and we will take you through a timeline of your life, and Unicef’s life!

Unicef has been working to protect the world’s children for 70 years and in that time we have witnessed immense progress, however the work continues to ensure that we are reaching every child and continue to do so for future generations. Legacy gifts help Unicef to continue to save and transform children’s lives, ensuring that together, we will leave a safer world for children.

Unicef's timeline, a child in 1949 after the Greek Civil War.

We've been working to keep children safe since 1946. In this picture, a boy in Greece clutches a Unicef-supplied blanket. This was just after the Greek Civil War (1944 - 1949) which had put children in further danger following WWII.
