UNICEF works in 190 countries and territories to protect the rights of every child. UNICEF has spent 70 years working to improve the lives of children and their families.
Defending children's rights throughout their lives requires a global presence, aiming to produce results and understand their effects.
UNICEF believes all children have a right to survive, thrive and fulfil their potential to the benefit of a better world.
For every child
The fundamental mission of UNICEF is to promote the rights of every child, everywhere, in everything the organization does in programs, in advocacy and in operations.
The equity strategy, emphasizing the most disadvantaged and excluded children and families, translates this commitment to children’s rights into action.
For UNICEF, equity means that all children have an opportunity to survive, develop and reach their full potential, without discrimination, bias or favouritism.
To the degree that any child has an unequal chance in life in its social, political, economic, civic and cultural dimensions her or his rights are violated.
There is growing evidence that investing in the health, education and protection of a society’s most disadvantaged citizens addressing inequity not only will give all children the opportunity to fulfil their potential but also will lead to sustained growth and stability of countries
