Our mission

UNICEF is the world's leading organisation working for children and their rights. We work with communities, partners and governments in over 190 countries and territories to help every child realise their full potential. We support children by providing health care, nutrition and education. We protect children affected by crises including war, natural disasters and HIV/AIDS. UNICEF receives no money from the UN Budget. We rely entirely on voluntary donations from individuals, governments, institutions and corporations.
