The UNICEF-supported child-friendly school provides a safe, interactive, creative and fun learning environment for students. Ms. Gomez – a recording artist, actress and designer – travelled to Nepal to bring attention to children in need within the country and across the globe. The visit provided her with an opportunity to witness UNICEF’s work in education, nutrition, health and protection. “At first when you witness children living in extreme poverty you wonder how it is possible that they can be deprived of their basic human needs and rights,” said Ms. Gomez. “Then you talk to these children and you see hope, promise and a bright future … I’m so proud to serve as a UNICEF Ambassador and be part of a greater movement to help the world’s children.”
