Welcome Former Nat Com head to join site

We had  a request from a member of the wider UNICEF family (former National Committee Head)  to join in related activities. The current main editors for the site (Sheila Barry Tacon and Adhiratha Keefe)  considered the request with some input from others.

It seemed quite reasonable to welcome additional participation from those who have previously  supported UNICEF in the wider arena for so many years.

For definition of website roles (Author, Editor, Contributor etc.) see:   https://en.support.wordpress.com/user-roles/

The access provided for former coordinators of National Committee Activities who wish to join this site will be as  “contributor:”

The newest member is David Bull, recently retired after 17 years as Executive Director of The United Kingdom National Committee for Unicef. “David Bull was appointed in 1999 and retired in June 2016…. He led the introduction of the Rights Respecting Schools Award in the UK and was awarded a CBE in the 2015 Queen’s Birthday Honours for his humanitarian services.”

It also seemed sensible to welcome as contributors any current UNICEF staff who wished to contribute, especially those getting close to their own retirement.


About adhiratha

I joined the UN Secretariat in 1973 and UNICEF in 1974. During 2005-2006 I was on loan from UNICEF to UN Secretariat for special projects and between 2007 to 2010 was a consultant specialist for UNFPA. Have also been consultant or unpaid volunteer for various NGO's . My fathers favorite quote from Sri Chinmoy was : "There is only one perfect road and that road is ahead of you ,, Always Ahead of you...". Association with organizations that seek to implement the UN Charters goal of practical "oneness" feels like an inner connection or reality that is not time or position bound.
