As a UNICEF Regional Ambassador, Mtawarira will use his voice to bring much-needed attention to UNICEF’s humanitarian and development priorities in the Eastern and Southern Africa region. Mtawarira is particularly passionate about improving educational opportunities for the most vulnerable children. Even before the pandemic, a vast majority of African children were experiencing a widespread learning crisis, with COVID-19 only serving to exacerbate the situation.

"I am so honored to take on this new role," said UNICEF Regional Ambassador Tendai Mtawarira. "I believe education is the great equalizer and every child on this continent should be able to access quality learning and fulfill their potential.”
