UNICEF works for a world in which every child has a fair chance in life

We work to advance the rights and well-being of every child, especially the most disadvantaged, so that they may realize their right to survive and thrive.

UNICEF works towards seven outcomes for every child


to live free of illness and preventable disease

to be protected from HIV infection and live free from AIDS

to drink clean water and practice safe sanitation and hygiene

to be well nourished

to benefit from a quality education

to live free from exploitation and violence

to grow up in supportive and protective family and community environments; and to be supported to mitigate the effects of poverty

To do this we need the help of supporters like you.


You can save lives, protect childhoods and give children the chance to go to school.
