Get Involved with ECOC

How to get involved with the UU Office at the UN (UU@UN) Every Child is Our Child (ECOC) program.

  • Donate: Please consider donating to Every Child is Our Child to support a student through primary school for the upcoming year. The UU@UN's ECOC fund is separate from other operating costs; all donations specified for ECOC will go directly to support and empower children and women in Ghana. Note: all contributions are tax deductible.
  • Religious Education: Getting children involved in supporting the ECOC program is a perfect way to help them connect with kids on the other side of the world and learn about the issues addresssed by the program. Please contact unitednations@uua.org for some materials to involve your religious education program with Every Child is Our Child.
  • Fundraise: Congregations across the United States and Canada have introduced ECOC into their RE and social justice programs. If you are interested in spreading awareness of HIV/AIDS to your congregations or holding a fundraiser for ECOC, please contact our ECOC intern at unintern@uua.org. Check out this list of fundraising ideas for inspiration!
