On the International Day of Non-Violence, we celebrate Mahatma Gandhi’s birthday & values of peace, respect & the essential dignity shared by everyone. We can defeat today's challenges by embracing these values & working across cultures & borders to build a better future.

A real honor to meet with His Excellency Zahid Faruk, State Minister of Water Resources and learn about Bangladesh's grassroots work to address river erosion and mitigate the risk of flash floods. Important learning for countries across the world to help adapt to climate change!

Appreciation to Commodore Sattar and the ARRRC for welcoming the Director @WFP and me to Bhasan Char. Incredibly impressive to see UNHCR, WFP, WHO, UNICEF, BRAC and many other partners working to support the Rohingya refugees on the island. A huge thank you to you all!

Our world is blighted by war, battered by climate chaos, scarred by hate, and shamed by poverty & hunger. This #UNGA I will address these issues with concrete recommendations & a call to action. We need to come together around solutions - and we need to give hope.

2 out of 3. That’s the estimated number of 10-year-olds that can’t read and understand a simple text. If we don’t act now, we will fail a generation of children. UNICEF is calling on governments to urgently scale up investment in learning #ForEveryChild. #TransformingEducation
