As the Goodwill Ambassador for UNICEF, former footballer David Beckham gave an inspiring speech on the United Nations on World Children’s Day, advocating every particular person’s duty towards making the world a greater place for youngsters throughout the globe. He made a point out of children who’re disadvantaged of shelter, vitamin, youngsters struggling because of pure calamities, youngsters being separated from their households.
Beckham stated, “Like all children, they have ambitions and dreams for a better future”.
“As leaders, as public figures, as parents, and of course, as human beings, we must all do more to protect children’s dreams because the future doesn’t belong to us. It belongs to children”.
Further, he emphasised on the requirements of kids, “Around the world, the vices of children are getting louder. They are calling for better health, a visit to a doctor, a simple vaccination against diseases, a plate of food, and clean water to drink. They are calling for a seat in the classroom and the loudest voices are coming from girls, they just want the same opportunities as boys to learn and develop.”
Beckham prompted everybody to ask themselves, “Are we listening as adults? Are we humble enough? Are we smart enough to realise that in the face of every single child, we can see the future of the world?”
