Ayushmann Khurrana named as UNICEF India National Ambassador for Child Rights in India

Bollywood actor Ayushmann Khurrana has been named a National Ambassador by UNICEF India, the organization said today. The National Award-winning actor partnered with UNICEF, according to the organization, to guarantee that every child's right to live and develop is safeguarded as well as to advance their voice and agency in choices that affect them.


"It is really an honor to extend my activism for children's rights with UNICEF India as a National Ambassador," Ayushmann remarked during his speech at the award ceremony.  He also mentioned his interest in the difficulties children and teenagers in India face. "As UNICEF's Celebrity Advocate, I have met with kids and given talks on mental health, gender equality, cyberbullying, and online safety. I will continue to speak out strongly for children's rights in this new position with UNICEF, especially for the most vulnerable and in favor of solutions to problems that most directly affect them " He added.


Cynthia McCaffrey, UNICEF India Representative, welcomed Ayushman Khurrana as the ambassador for India. I'm thrilled to welcome Ayushmann Khurrana as the National Ambassador for UNICEF India, she added. As UNICEF's Celebrity Advocate for the past two years, Ayushmann has demonstrated a strong devotion, which has boosted and fueled the effort to uphold children's rights. He is one of the most well-known movie actors in India, and we are happy that he is using his influence to support children and fight against gender stereotypes and detrimental societal conventions. Yet in its compassion and passion, it is a voice that is in tune with UNICEF's mission and philosophy. We look forward to collaborating with him on the most critical child rights problems of our day, including gender equality, reducing violence, and mental health - and towards a better future for every child."

The Bollywood star previously supported child rights. Ayushmann was chosen as UNICEF India's Celebrity Advocate in September 2020 to promote the cause of eradicating violence against children and the larger goal of child rights. His strong involvement in World Children's Day, as well as his voice and influence on International Women's Day, International Day of the Girl Child, World Day Against Child Labor, and Safer Internet Day, elevated awareness of children's issues and brought them to the public's notice. Most recently, he brought attention to inclusion and non-discrimination through gender - inclusive sports on World Children's Day 2022 with Sachin Tendulkar, Regional Ambassador for UNICEF South Asia, and with girls and boys participating from all around India.
