Clay Aiken Blogs About UNICEF

Clay Aiken just got back from the East African countries of Somalia and Kenya doing his part as ambassador for UNICEF, which provides children with health care, education, nutrition, clean water and sanitation.

Ever since Clay realized he was about to be a father, his focus seems to be on the children. His baby with music producer Jaymes Foster is due next month. Here's part of Clay's blog from Africa:

"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."
