Her Royal Highness the Princess of Hanover

Her Royal Highness the Princess of Hanover was designated UNESCO Goodwill Ambassador in recognition of her personal commitment to the protection of children and the family and her contribution to the promotion of UNESCO’s programmes for basic education.

Following her appointment in December 2003, the Princess of Hanover has concentrated mainly on UNESCO projects to promote Education for All (EFA), which is at the heart of the Organization’s work.

Her Royal Highness serves as the President of the Princess Grace Foundation, which was founded in 1964 with the aim of reaching out to those with special needs for whom no provision has been made within the regular social services.

In 1993 Her Royal Highness the Princess of Hanover was named President of AMADE Mondiale, Association mondiale des amis de l'enfance or Worldwide Association of Children's Friends. This association was created in 1963 to protect children from physical and psychological abuse.

For the last two years Her Royal Highness the Princess of Hanover has contributed to the UNESCO project, Strengthening Women’s Capacities to Promote Education for Children in Rural Areas in Burkina Faso, which aims at realizing the goals of the Education for All initiative by assuring the enrolment of all children of a village in Burkina Faso and the highest possible autonomy of the women in the community at the same time.
