Clay Aiken Blogs For UNICEF
UNICEF Ambassador Clay Aiken recently visited the East African countries of Somalia and Kenya, where UNICEF provides children with health care, education, nutrition, clean water and sanitation.
The 29-year-old American Idol alum has written a series of blogs about his experience in the field.
Here’s a snippet of one of Clay‘s blog posts: “Getting children back to school is vital for their protection, and helps build a sense of normalcy in their lives. The re-establishment of schools in the most difficult circumstances is a testament to the commitment of UNICEF and to Kenyans. Many displaced parents told UNICEF that getting their children back to school was their top priority.
“Every child has the right to an education. Education transforms lives and breaks the cycle of poverty that so many children are caught in. And an educated child will make sure his or her own children receive an education too. This is just another one of the many amazing ways UNICEF is helping children today, while also building a safer Kenya tomorrow.”

Next month, Clay will become a new father! It was announced back in May that he artificially inseminated music producer Jaymes Foster, the sister of legendary record mogul David Foster.
