UNWG Children’s Walk 14/10/2016

The Children’s Walk is one of the highlights of the UNWG calendar. The event is an educational opportunity for local schoolchildren in and around Geneva to meet up and raise funds for one purpose, to contribute towards scholarships for disadvantaged children around the world.

We introduced a different style of presentation last year which engaged the attention of our young audience in delivering an easy understanding of the walk’s purpose. Lively motivational music played in the General Assembly Hall to set the tone, made this year’s walk an exuberant, energetic and inspirational experience for all. Despite the heavy rain, the schools all came along. One volunteer said that the children had ”rain on their backs, but sunshine in their hearts”.

The UN Women’s Guild wishes to thank the following schools who participated in this year’s event: British School of Geneva, Collège du Léman, Ecole des Nations Montessori, Geneva English School, Institut International de Lancy, Ecole Moderne, International School of Geneva La Châtaigneraie, International School of Geneva Nations Saconnex and Pregny campuses, Institut Florimont, and the Swedish School of Geneva. Over 900 children joined in the fun.

The realisation of the Walk is the combined effort of numerous people. Special thanks to the dedicated Children’s Walk team headed by Gita Sundararaman and Libby McCutchan, the UN staff who provide logistical support, for our sponsors and donors, the participating schools and also the numerous Guild volunteers.
