Priyanka Chopra has been crowned UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador . The actor visited Zimbabwe last week and met children who are victims of sexual violence. Chopra’s first stop was Chitungwiza, south of Harare, Zimbabwe and then Priyanka hosted UNICEF South Africa’s first Gala event in Johannesburg to raise funds for UNICEF’s work for children in South Africa. Priyanka had a great time chatting with the little ones. She danced with them, and also put beautiful bindis on the foreheads of little girls. There is no doubt that this desi girl is doing great work. See her moving pictures from her trip here.

My start to a beautiful morning before ending an amazingly insightful trip. This is an Isibindi ("courage" in Zulu) Safe Park. The parks and program are all about prevention and early intervention to protect children from the HIV/AIDS crisis and many other vulnerabilities that can lead to violence in South Africa..The volunteer child and youth care workers (CYCW) help create a safe environment for children to play and be counseled in a controlled and protected environment. The National association of child and youth care workers (NACCW) is responsible for training almost 10,000 CYCWs and deliver services to almost 1.4 million children in SA..These workers connect with the children on a personal level, in their homes and in the park, and involve themselves in their daily life events like homework, household chores, and family issues. They use ordinary human interaction to feed these children teach them life skills and take care of the emotional needs of children -especially in child headed and parent less families. I've never seen so much commitment on such a personal level. I salute them 🙏🏻
