UNICEF - FOR EVERY CHILDUNICEF works in 190 countries and territories to save children's lives, to defend their rights, and to help them fulfil their potential, from early childhood through adolescence. And we never give up. Discover UNICEF's work for every child, everywhere.
UNICEF was established in the aftermath of World War II to help children whose lives and futures were at risk – no matter what country they were from.
The only thing that mattered to UNICEF was reaching children in need. What mattered was achieving results.
The same holds true today. We work day-in and day-out, in some of the world’s toughest places, to reach the children and young people who are most at risk and most in need. We work to save their lives. To protect their rights. To keep them safe from harm. To give them a childhood in which they’re protected, healthy and educated. To give them a fair chance to fulfil their potential.
We are UNICEF. We stand for every child, everywhere. And we never give up.
