The Internet brings opportunities for expression online, but opportunity and risk often go hand-in-hand.

As violence escalates in Falluja and across Iraq, we call on all parties to protect children and provide safe passage to those wishing to leave the city.
At least 20,000 children remain inside besieged Falluja, Islamic State's stronghold near Baghdad, facing the risk of forced recruitment in the fighting and separation from their families, the United Nations' children's agency said on Wednesday.

Fleeing al-Shabaab in Somalia, 18-year old 'Omar' survived imprisonment by human traffickers in Libya and a sinking boat in the Mediterranean. He made the trip alone, like more than 9 out of 10 of the refugee and migrant children arriving in Italy this year. ‪#‎actofhumanity‬

Dear Ambassador, Awareness... may I please request help starting my own religious foundation, religion practice, and a nonprofit so I can donate back to my community and local food shelves, the salvation army. 

Basically my country has turned me into a political refugee and a prisoner of war, this happened before i was born because of former president Richard Nickson enacted a war on drugs... I seriously am requesting mentors, guidance, and support while i find my religious belief... I can't trust my elders or their practices based on historical events, and in the outcome of the present... the practice is flawed and incomplete wholeheartedly i believe this and wish to start my own religion. Please? watch over me and my family...


I have recently wrote the international court of Justice requesting support. I was in county in jail in Duluth MN. I'm now at a room and board house... please can I get a link or some information about how to participate in international relations (Harvey Johnson 5388 Rd 37 AURORA MN 55705) I wish to start a non profit bakery, religious foundation, and my own religious practice.

“Smart decisions are based on good information.” Meet Clemens Gros, Monitoring and Evaluation Specialist /Innovation Lead with UNICEF Ghana in the latest Faces of UNICEF.
Clemens Gros, Monitoring and Evaluation Specialist / Innovations Lead, Accra, Ghana Tell us a bit about your background. I’m from a small village in rural Bavaria, a bit like the Shire in ‘Lord of the Rings’ but in South-Eastern Germany… Computers were a teenage hobby of mine so I started working as a software developer straight out of high school. I soon learned that, depending on the project, coding can be quite a solitary activity a...

Introduction

UNICEF promotes the rights and wellbeing of every child in 190 countries and territories, with a special focus on reaching those in greatest need. We have the global authority to influence decision-makers, and the variety of partners at grassroots level to turn the most innovative ideas into reality.  That makes us unique among world organizations, and unique among those working with the young.

We believe that nurturing and caring for children are the cornerstones of human progress.  UNICEF was created with this purpose in mind – to work with others to overcome the obstacles that poverty, violence, disease and discrimination place in a child’s path.  We believe that we can, together, advance the cause of humanity.

We advocate for measures to give children the best start in life, because proper care at the youngest age forms the strongest foundation for a person’s future.

We promote girls’ education – ensuring that they complete primary education as a minimum – because it benefits all children, both girls and boys. Girls who are educated grow up to become better thinkers, better citizens, and better parents to their own children.

We act so that all children are immunized against common childhood diseases, and are well nourished, because it is wrong for a child to suffer or die from a preventable illness.

We work to prevent the spread of HIV/AIDS among young people because it is right to keep them from harm and enable them to protect others. We help children and families affected by HIV/AIDS to live their lives with dignity.

We involve everyone in creating protective environments for children. We are present to relieve suffering during emergencies, and wherever children are threatened, because no child should be exposed to violence, abuse or exploitation.

UNICEF upholds the Convention on the Rights of the Child.  We work to assure equality for those who are discriminated against, girls and women in particular. We work for the Millennium Development Goals and for the progress promised in the United Nations Charter. We strive for peace and security. We work to hold everyone accountable to the promises made for children.

We are part of the Global Movement for Children – a broad coalition dedicated to improving the life of every child.  Through this movement, and events such as the United Nations Special Session on Children, we encourage young people to speak out and participate in the decisions that affect their lives. 

We are active in more than 190 countries and territories through country programmes and National Committees. We are UNICEF, the United Nations Children’s Fund.
