There is also ongoing work to strengthen the social protection system to cover vulnerable communities who may not be protected by the current framework.
Ian Wiggin, skipper of the gifted UNICEF’s Clipper Race charity team said: “Speaking to the Youth Forum was amazing. There were some incredibly motivated, passionate, and articulate role models. The older children are very Fred up to change the situation that they, and the people around them, are in.” During the Clipper 2017-18 Race, the crew, supporters, and race partners around the world lent their support and raised more than £374,000 (R7.02 million) which will help save the lives of thousands of children. For the third consecutive edition, the Clipper Race has empowered the team yacht to UNICEF to help raise awareness of the issues that impact children across the globe. The hope is that during the upcoming Clipper 2019-20 Race, the total amount of money raised since the partnership began would pass the £1 million (R18.8 million) mark. The amount raised so far in the current edition is £174,000 (R3.3 million).
