As a Goodwill Ambassador to the United Nations Children’s Fund, Maxim Vengerov has lent his support to UNICEF’s new global initiative to help end violence against children. Launching on July 31, the campaign focuses on eradicating child abuse by bullying or sexual violence and trafficking in homes, areas of conflict, and schools. As UNICEF writes, “Just because you can’t see violence, doesn’t mean it isn’t there. Make the invisible visible.”

Vengerov has said of his work with UNICEF, “Helping children in need and sharing classical music with young people is perhaps the greatest responsibility of my life.” Learn more about his work with the organization here.
