With Your Help, Our School Visits to the United Nations Continue
Confirming New York as the most cosmopolitan city in the world, wives of several ambassadors to the UN donned national dress and greeted students from Kent Place School, New Jersey when they visited the United Nations on February 19.
The 7th grade students greatly enjoyed this opportunity to visit the United Nations chaperoned by gracious and hospitable “country guides.” Mrs. Anna Birgis Hannesson, wife of the ambassador from Iceland, Dr. Helen Yousfi, wife of the ambassador from Algeria and Mrs. Hadiza Abani, wife of the ambassador from Niger were the keynote speakers. They introduced the students to their respective countries and spoke about their fascinating lives and careers.
The UNA-NY hosts school visits to the United Nations as part of our educational outreach. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to recommend schools that would be interested in visiting the UN.
