Face-to-face fundraising has been identified as a central technique for pledge acquisition and the office has secured a significant growth of pledge income through this channel in the last three years.

Individual contractors - facers are expected to be present around the UNICEF branded stands or without the stand in UNICEF uniform, to approach people, presenting them UNICEF’s work and convincing them to sign the standing order forms for pledge to UNICEF Serbia.
