UNICEF is a leading humanitarian and development agency working globally for the rights of every child.

UNICEF works for a world in which every child has a fair chance in life. All children have a right to survive, thrive and fulfill their potential - to the benefit of a better world. Child rights begin with safe shelter, nutrition, protection from disaster and conflict and traverse the life cycle: pre-natal care for healthy births, clean water and sanitation, health care and education.

UNICEF has spent nearly 70 years working to improve the lives of children and their families. Working with and for children through adolescence and into adulthood requires a global presence whose goal is to produce results and monitor their effects. UNICEF also lobbies and partners with leaders, thinkers and policy makers to help all children realize their rights—especially the most disadvantaged.
