Here is the official press release of Unicef about Carolines's trip to Boston in May:
2006 Children’s Champion Award to
H.R.H. The Princess of Hanover in Boston
Boston, March 13, 2006—The New England Chapter of the U.S. Fund for UNICEF will present the 2006 Children’s
Champion Award to H.R.H. The Princess of Hanover (Princess Caroline of Monaco) on Saturday, May 20, 2006 at
the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston.
The Children’s Champion Award is awarded by the U.S. Fund for UNICEF to a public figure whose passion for
children has contributed to making a difference in children’s lives around the world. Past recipients of the Children’s
Champion Award include Nelson Mandela, Sir Roger Moore, and H.M. Queen Noor of Jordan.
The black tie evening will consist of a reception, award presentation and dinner in honor of Her Royal Highness. All
proceeds will directly benefit UNICEF’s programs for the advancement of children worldwide.
“H.R.H The Princess of Hanover was chosen as this year’s recipient for Her longstanding commitment to the
betterment of children’s lives worldwide,” said Kimberlea Tracey, Director, noting Her role as President of the World
Association of Children’s Friends (AMADE), an international child advocacy NGO founded by Her mother, the late
Princess Grace of Monaco, in 1963.
AMADE is headquartered in the Principality of Monaco and seeks the promotion and protection of children’s rights
globally and develops humanitarian aid programs through a network of local organizations in Africa, Asia, Europe
and South America.
In 2003, The Princess of Hanover was appointed as a United Nations Goodwill Ambassador in recognition of Her
efforts to improve the lives of children and their families.
The Princess of Hanover will be accompanied to this event by the Secretary General of AMADE, Francis Kasasa.
For 60 years UNICEF has been the world’s leader for children, working on the ground in 155 countries and territories
to help children survive and thrive, from early childhood through adolescence. The world’s largest provider of
vaccines for poor countries, UNICEF supports child health and nutrition, good water and sanitation, quality basic
education for all boys and girls, and the protection of children from violence, exploitation and AIDS. UNICEF is
funded entirely by the voluntary contributions of individuals, businesses, foundations and governments.
