And we never give up.
For every child, protection.
fundamental mission of UNICEF is to promote the rights of every child,
everywhere, in everything the organization does in programs, in advocacy
and in operations. The equity strategy, emphasizing the most
disadvantaged and excluded children and families, translates this
commitment to children’s rights into action. For UNICEF, equity means
that all children have an opportunity to survive, develop and reach
their full potential, without discrimination, bias, or favoritism. To
the degree that any child has an unequal chance in life – its social,
political, economic, civic, and cultural dimensions – her or his rights
are violated. There is growing evidence that investing in the health,
education and protection of a society’s most disadvantaged citizens –
addressing inequity – not only will give all children the opportunity to
fulfill their potential but also will lead to sustained growth and
stability of countries. Therefore, the focus on equity is so vital. It
accelerates progress towards realizing the human rights of all children,
which is the universal mandate of UNICEF, as outlined by the Convention
on the Rights of the Child, while also supporting the equitable
development of nations.
