The United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) is a global humanitarian agency that works for and advocates for children’s rights. The most basic child rights begin with good nutrition, stable shelter, protection from disaster, protection from conflict, prenatal care for healthy births, clean water, sanitation, health care, and education. UNICEF has spent nearly 70 years working to improve the lives of children and their families. Working with and for children through adolescence and into adulthood, UNICEF has rightfully gained a global presence, and, as such, it continues fighting to produce lasting results. UNICEF lobbies partners, leaders, thinkers and policy makers to help all children understand their rights, while also constantly working to make sure that every child has access to the most basic necessities, most notably focusing on those that are most disadvantaged.
