UNICEF, Celebrating 70 Years!

UNICEF, Celebrating 70 Years!

It is impossible to imagine our world today without UNICEF protecting those children in need. Seventy years ago UNICEF was born through a unanimous vote at the first session of the UN General Assembly and was funded entirely by voluntary contributions. The United Nations International Children’s Emergency Fund was initially created in 1946 to help the children of post WWII Europe, and was intended to be a short term relief fund. Yet, as we look back today, at the 190 countries that UNICEF has programs in,  it is nearly impossible to ever think that  UNICEF could have been short term. 

Shortly after all the projects and programs were completed for the children  impacted by post World War II Europe and  many assumed UNICEF would be dissolved.  A permanent representative of Pakistan for the UN, Ahmed Bokhari, argued that  children all over were facing an ongoing spiral of disease and poverty and because of this and so much more, UNICEF’s mission was indispensable. Ahmed Bokhari was right, it may be true that UNICEF began as a temporary experiment 70 years ago to offer relief to the children of Europe, but today, UNICEF has grown to become the world’s  leading agency to offering relief to children. Today, UNICEF actively works to improve the lives of children who struggle with poverty,, health, and education in over 190 countries. Nine-five percent of all UNICEF profits goes directly to the programs and children in struggling countries. UNICEF changes children’s lives every day, making a huge difference, and yet there is so much more that  needs to be done.

The challenges that UNICEF takes on today for children around the world are unrecognizable to the challenges that once existed in 1946. Children face problems with education, preventable diseases, HIV and, child trafficking, and so much more. Time changes so many things, and with time new challenges and opportunity arise. At NTI we want to thank UNICEF for everything that they do for the children all around the world. For their past seventy years of commitment and their many more to come.

NTI wants to remind you that we are committed to you. That time has changed and that there are  many opportunities  waiting for you.  We want to remind you that  we have education opportunities ate our remote call centers and our LandAJob training programs to help you land a job. Not to mention  our working at home job opportunities! If you are on SSI or SSDI and are searching for a job look no further!  Let NTI help you!

John Hancock and NTI Partner to Empower the United Nations 17 Goals for the Future We Want

Nations 17 Goals for the Future We Want

December 3rd is the United Nations designated International Day for Persons with Disabilities. The theme for this International Day in 2016 is "Achieving 17 Goals for the Future We Want." The UN recently adopted 17 development goals to build an inclusive and equitable world for individuals with disabilities to achieve by 2030. A list of the 17 sustainable goals can be found here:


In the efforts of contributing toward the achievement of these goals, John Hancock partnered with NTI (www.NTICentral.org), to place Americans with severe disabilities to work as customer service representatives.  Through their partnership, John Hancock and NTI are setting a shared vision toward the UN's goals of decent work and economic growth.

According to the United Nations “17 Goals for the Future, We Want,” two significant ones stand out in the business relationship between NTI and John Hancock. In our efforts to support the 4th goal, which is “ensures inclusive and quality education for all and promote lifelong learning,” NTI strives to provide training to all work at home employees. NTI leads a three-day course to acclimate set up prepare individuals for success in a call center environment. Candidates also have access to an on-demand online university to increase their educational skillsets. In turn, John Hancock further remotely trains NTI employees in four-week programs to become customer service representatives. The combination of these programs equips the learners with the knowledge and skills to be successful and sustain development and their well-being.

The 8th goal is focused on “promoting inclusive and sustainable economic growth, employment and decent work for all”. Not only are John Hancock and NTI establishing creative and sustainable jobs, these jobs provide growth and innovation for John Hancock, as well. By creating positions for Americans with Disabilities, John Hancock is expanding their brand and customer service for their customers. They are seeing not only the altruistic value of working with Americans with Disabilities but the economic growth it provides to their organization.

As NTI builds the relationships with organizations like John Hancock, we can work toward the United Nations "17 Goals for the Future We Want." Together, we celebrate the International Day of Persons with Disabilities, #IDPD2016, through the United Nations effort to build a more sustainable and equitable workforce, particularly through the goals of quality work and economic growth.

Mike Sanders is the Marketing Director at NTI and Speaker, with over 20 years experience who places individuals with disabilities back into the workplace. Additionally, he is a Diversity Advocate focusing on Americans with Disabilities and the originator of the Into the Streets program to help connect over 80,000 individuals with volunteer groups and has been implemented in Colleges and Universities nationwide.
