From 17 till 21 June, representatives from the US Next Generation, a group of young entrepreneurs that advocate for UNICEF in the United-States, visited UNICEF projects in Ho Chi Minh City and Dong Thap. UNICEF Next Generation United States members are influential and passionate young adults (age 18-35) who are committed to supporting UNICEF's mission to fulfill the rights of all children through the deliverance of educational and fundraising programmes.
