UNICEF works in some of the world’s toughest places, to reach the world’s most disadvantaged children. To save their lives. To defend their rights. To help them fulfill their potential.

Across 190 countries and territories, we work for every child, everywhere, every day, to build a better world for everyone.

And we never give up.

For every child, Hope

The fundamental mission of UNICEF is to promote the rights of every child, everywhere, in everything the organization does — in programmes, inadvocacy and in operations. The equity strategy, emphasizing the most disadvantaged and excluded children and families, translates this commitment tochildren’s rights into action.

For UNICEF, equity means that all children have an opportunity to survive, develop and reach their full potential, withoutdiscrimination, bias or favoritism.

To the degree that any child has an unequal chance in life — in its social, political, economic, civic and culturaldimensions — her or his rights are violated.

There is growing evidence that investing in the health, education and protection of a society’s mostdisadvantaged citizens — addressing inequity — not only will give all children the opportunity to fulfill their potential but also will lead to sustainedgrowth and stability of countries.

This is why the focus on equity is so vital. It accelerates progress towards realizing the human rights of all children, whichis the universal mandate of UNICEF, as outlined by the Convention on the Rights of the Child, while also supporting the equitable development ofnations.
