Kareena has been working with UNICEF India since 2014, advocating for girls’ education, gender equality, basic learning, vaccinations, and breastfeeding.

Upon her appointment as UNICEF India’s National Ambassador, Kareena expressed happiness. “I’m very honoured and very humbled to take on this position. I’ve worked tirelessly and worked very hard with all my heart. And now, finally, I’m joining them as a national ambassador. But of course, with that comes a huge responsibility which I accept with all my heart to ensure that every child through the corners of India, however vulnerable, wherever he is, whoever she is…I must include when I say every single child, I do not specify gender, I do not want to, voice or no voice, abled or disabled…I specify every single child I will work towards to give them their fundamental right…,” she added.

The star of ‘Crew’ highlighted the importance of nurturing children’s confidence, enabling them to explore new ideas and aspire for big dreams in life. “And nurturing their confidence. Because confidence gives them the ability to dream, ability to fly, ability to have ideas, to innovate, which they need because children are, they are the future. They are the future of our nation. So to have that, we must build their confidence. So that is also a fundamental right, which we have to do,” she expressed.

Kareena expressed that as a mother to her two sons, Taimur and Jeh, she has come to understand the importance of advocating for every child to have a voice.

“Of course, this role is most important, but the most important role I play in my life is being a mother to my two boys. And I always feel that children need a voice. They like to be heard. Whatever it is, whichever environment they’re in, whether it’s talking to their parents, talking to their peers, or talking to their teachers, they want to be heard. They want to feel like someone’s listening to whatever they’re saying, at whatever age, they just want to be heard. And that is something that I make a conscious effort of with my children is if they have a voice, we must, must hear them clearly,” she shared.
