Description

UNICEF is mandated by the United
Nations General Assembly to
advocate for the protection of
children's rights, to help meet their
basic needs and to expand their
opportunities to reach their full
potential.

UNICEF is guided by the Convention
on the Rights of the Child and strives
to establish children's rights as
enduring ethical principles and
international standards of behaviour
towards children.

UNICEF insists that the survival,
protection and development of
children are universal development
imperatives that are integral to
human progress.

UNICEF mobilizes political will and
material resources to help countries,
particularly developing countries,
ensure a "first call for children" and
to build their capacity to form
appropriate policies and deliver
services for children and their
families.

UNICEF is committed to ensuring
special protection for the most
disadvantaged children - victims of
war, disasters, extreme poverty, all
forms of violence and exploitation
and those with disabilities.

UNICEF responds in emergencies
to protect the rights of children. In
coordination with United Nations
partners and humanitarian
agencies, UNICEF makes its unique
facilities for rapid response available
to its partners to relieve the suffering
of children and those who provide
their care.

UNICEF is non-partisan and its
cooperation is free of discrimination.
In everything it does, the most
disadvantaged children and the
countries in greatest need have
priority.

UNICEF aims, through its country
programmes, to promote the equal
rights of women and girls and to
support their full participation in the
political, social, and economic
development of their communities.

UNICEF works with all its partners
towards the attainment of the
sustainable human development
goals adopted by the world
community and the realization of the
vision of peace and social progress
enshrined in the Charter of the
United Nations.
