UNICEF is on the ground in 155 countries and territories to help children survive and thrive, from early childhood through adolescence. The world’s largest provider of vaccines for developing countries, UNICEF supports child health and nutrition, good water and sanitation, quality basic education for all boys and girls, and the protection of children from violence, exploitation, and AIDS. UNICEF is funded entirely by the voluntary contributions of individuals, businesses, foundations and governments.
UNICEF has a reputation of integrity and trust that can advocate for children and help to influence key decision-makers around the world. While UNICEF often works on a global stage, the organisation also places great importance on its vital work in the field, collaborating with partners at grassroots level to turn the most innovative ideas into reality. This ability to be effective on both a macro and micro level makes UNICEF unique among world organizations and unique among those working with children and young people.
UNICEF believes that one of the cornerstones of human progress is to nurture and care for children. Created with this purpose in mind, UNICEF works with others to overcome the obstacles that poverty, violence, disease and discrimination place in a child’s path.
