Ali and Ali. “He is my best friend,” says Ali Hassouna as he holds his grandson, Ali, 5, in ‪#‎Gaza‬.

Young Ali has nightmares about his father, who was killed in a blast which hit the UN-run school where they were sheltering last summer. Six months after the ceasefire, children are still trapped in trauma: http://uni.cf/1zMFqT7

Dieudonné Mosikikongo from Kinshasa in Democratic Republic of the Congo believes in the healing power of Capoeira - a Brazilian form of martial art and dance.

He’s been practicing the sport since 2006 but is now focused on teaching its values to former child soldiers. Learn how he’s using it as a tool for peace. 
I discovered capoeira in Kinshasa in 2006 during a very short but intense one-week introductory course and this is where my desire to progress in this art began. The following year the batizado was...

The struggle of a girl in pursuit of an education might be unique for a music video, but it’s a reality for millions. 

Changu Mannathoko, senior education advisor at UNICEF headquarters, shares her thoughts on our latest video collaboration with reggae band SOJA. #outofschool 
Though I am hardly an expert on the music industry, I understand that it is fairly unusual to see a music video about the life and struggle of a young girl in pursuit of an education. But that's ex...

Adolescents are the only age group where AIDS-related deaths are not declining. Let's go ALL IN to #ENDAdolescentAIDS. 
Did you know that 2.1 million adolescents worldwide are living with HIV? AIDS is #1 cause of death for adolescents in Africa, and #2 worldwide. It is time to #EndAdolescentAIDS. We are ALL IN this together: http://allintoendadolescentaids.org/…

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.
