For seven decades, the mission of the United Nations Association and its chapters has been to inform, inspire and mobilize Americans to support the principles and vital work of the United Nations and to strengthen the United Nations system. Your support is vital in helping us to advance peace, prosperity and justice around the globe.
More than 65 million people have fled their homes and risked their lives in search of refuge. Most are children, but less than half have access to education. The United Nations Association of the United States of America, in tandem with the UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR) and its fundraising arm USA for UNHCR, is working to prevent a lost generation by giving refugee children the education they need to build a better future.
