Caryl Stern, President and CEO of the U.S. Fund for UNICEF

Caryl Stern, President and CEO of the U.S. Fund for UNICEF, talks about her travels around the world and the powerful and sometimes counter-intuitive lessons she’s learned about life. I Believe in Zero: Learning from the World’s Children reflects her—and UNICEF's—mission to reduce the number of preventable deaths of children under the age of five from 19,000 each day to zero. From Bangladesh, Mozambique, earthquake-ravaged Haiti, the Brazilian Amazon, she weaves together history, an account of the humanitarian crises at issue, and depictions of the people she meets on the ground.
