If you are a committed, creative professional and are passionate about making a lasting difference for children, the world’s leading children’s rights organization would like to hear from you.
For 70 years, UNICEF has been working on the ground in 190 countries and territories to promote children’s survival, protection and development. The world’s largest provider of vaccines for developing countries, UNICEF supports child health and nutrition, good water and sanitation, quality basic education for all boys and girls, and the protection of children from violence, exploitation, and AIDS. UNICEF is funded entirely by the voluntary contributions of individuals, businesses, foundations and governments.
UNICEF in Europe and Central Asia, through its network of Communication for Development specialists, works with various stakeholders at national and subnational levels to promote the development and inclusion of all children as well as to address negative attitudes, harmful beliefs and practices, negative cultural and social norms. Throughout the years, Country Offices (COs) have implemented various communication strategies and campaigns producing a large number of Information Education and Communication (IEC) materials and tools.
To reduce fragmentation, overlap, and duplication as well as to facilitate exchange of information, materials and resources among COs, the UNICEF Regional Office for Europe and Central Asia (CEE/CIS) intends to develop a regional online repository of C4D/C4SC related documents, research tools and materials. This online repository can hold wide range of materials and knowledge products in different forms and formats. It will provide quick and easy access to specialists in Country Offices (COs) to various resources, offering at the same time the opportunity to share with others the locally produced and tested materials and tools.
