The fundamental mission of UNICEF is to promote the rights of every child, everywhere. There is growing evidence that investing in the health, education and protection of a society’s most disadvantaged citizens and addressing inequity, will not only give all children the opportunity to fulfill their potential but will also will lead to sustained growth and stability of countries.This 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 and the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
For every child, hope
