Baku , Azerbaijan is one of the least reported about destinations in the Former Soviet Union. Prior to my trip, I spent hours searching for reputable content on this mysterious destination and of course, Azeri women. I knew very little about Baku and its people. I read reports of its oil wealth and fancy hotels. However, what of its culture, mentality and looks and attitudes of its women?
UNICEF is a leading humanitarian and development agency working globally for the rights of every child. Child rights begin with safe shelter, nutrition, protection from disaster and conflict and traverse the life cycle: pre-natal care for healthy births, clean water and sanitation, health care and education. Working with and for children through adolescence and into adulthood requires a global presence whose goal is to produce results and monitor their effects. UNICEF also lobbies and partners with leaders, thinkers and policy makers to help all children realize their rights—especially the most disadvantaged.
