Meet people, do stuff.

Fundraising for Unicef and raising awareness about the causes and efforts that Unicef supports internationally.

Unicef UK was founded in 1946, and was created by the United Nations to advocate and stand up for children rights in more than 150 countries around the world. The charity has a broad spectrum of areas that it covers including protecting children from violence, abuse, exploitation, addressing development problems including nutrition, sanitation and healthcare, and supporting education programmes to encourage good and equal education for girls and boys.

St Andrews Unicef on Campus is dedicated to fundraising for Unicef UK and advocating for the rights of children. We are one of the most active and social charitable societies, with a clear objective for students with a common charitable interest to come together.

There might be uncertainty surrounding the next academic year; however, we are certain that the effects of Covid on children, the Black Lives Matter Movement, and the humanitarian crisis in Yemen will bring students in St Andrews closer together, and increase their desire to learn more about global issues. In light of this, we have an exciting year planned, and we are confident it will create an inclusive and welcoming society in St Andrews.

Where can I find out more?

We are active on Instagram (@UStAUnicef); feel free to message us any questions that you might have, and follow us for future events and blog posts on global issues.



Memberships for 2024-25 will be available in September.

Conflict, Crisis and Covid in Yemen: a Deadly Combination - by Laoise Rogers

Yemen has been home to a devastating, protracted conflict since it was swept up in political uprisings as part of the Arab Spring in 2011. The country has been torn apart by violence, particularly since the start of the Civil War in 2014 which is ongoing today. There are over 30 fronts across Yemen and fighting is carried out by various armed domestic groups, as well as there being significant involvement by regional powers, particularly the Saudi-led coalition.
