United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) is the world’s leading UN organization working specifically for children, with a presence in more than 190 countries and territories to help children survive and thrive, from early childhood through adolescence. Since our establishment in 1946, we have been working with other UN agencies, governments and NGOs to ensure children’s rights to survival, development, protection and participation. Hong Kong Committee for UNICEF (UNICEF HK) was founded in 1986 and established as an independent local Non-governmental Organization to fulfil the mandate of child rights protection.
UNICEF HK launched ‘Unite for Children. Unite for Hong Kong.’ Child Rights Advocacy Project (the Project) in 2011 to support eligible Hong Kong NGOs or non-profit making organizations in implementing projects which help promote and realize children’s rights in Hong Kong. The Project received overwhelming response and has benefited tens of thousands of marginalized children and their families in the past years.
Through the joint efforts of local organizations working for child rights, we hope to reach out to more children in need in Hong Kong and build a better future for Hong Kong children.
Past supported projects have included pilot-run of service projects, academic and practice research projects to provide insights and recommendations for evidence-based impacts with regard to policy and legislation advocacy, development of standards/guideline, development of community-based practices and solutions that contribute to the advancement in well-being of children or child rights situation (i.e. children’s survival, protection, development and participation).
