Take our childhood memories quiz

Everything is different when you’re a child: the trees are higher, the colours are brighter, and every new day is more interesting that the last. Even more importantly, some things happen that stay in our memory for a long time - in fact, sometimes they end up being with us forever.

What do you remember most fondly? Was it school, the holidays your favourite past-time?

Take our quiz and see whether your recollections mirror those of other Australians.


Every time you save a child there is hope.

6 amazing stories of triumph over adversity.

Some children have the most unimaginable childhoods, facing risks to their health, a lack of nutrition, natural disasters, war and limited opportunities for education. Through all of this, UNICEF provides the most important antidote – HOPE.

Imagine being a child and forced to become a soldier, losing your limbs to a landmine or being born during an earthquake. This video tells the stories of 6 exceptional people with amazing stories who, with UNICEF’s help, overcame huge adversity as children and were able to thrive and give back to their communities.

Take our "Why does the world need UNICEF?" quiz

Since it's foundation 75 years ago, UNICEF has worked tirelessly to ensure that every child has the right to:
  • Grow up in a safe and inclusive environment
  • Survive and thrive
  • Learn
  • An equitable chance in life
  • Fulfil their potential
Working in over 190 countries and territories we have, during that period, made a significant impact on the lives of millions of children. But unfortunately, there's still much more to be done.

How well do you understand the size of the task UNICEF faces? Take our quiz and find out.

How do I leave a gift in my Will?

When making or updating your Will, you just need to let your solicitor know your intentions. There is no obligation to let us know and you can change your mind at any time.

At UNICEF, we respect that the decision to leave a gift in your Will is special and personal. That’s why we have developed a free Gifts in Wills guide to share more information to help you consider this decision in your own time and provide a clear step by step process.

Our free guide includes information on making or updating your Will and how your legacy gift will have a lasting impact for children.
Making a difference to the lives of children in Australia and around the world starts with you. Watch the video to find out how.
