The lives and futures of millions of children are in jeopardy. By 2030 it's estimated 69 million children will die under the age of 5, 60 million will be out of primary school, and 167 million will live in extreme poverty.
Working in 190 countries and territories, UNICEF is the world's leading organisation fighting for safe and healthy lives for millions of innocent children across the globe. They've spent 70 years working on child survival, child development, child protection and emergencies, with the goal of ZERO children abused, exploited or denied basic rights to healthcare, education and protection.

Although 'Kids Alive' has high independent ratings, their global reach is very small compared to both UNICEF and 'Save The Children' (STC). Both UNICEF and STC are effective international charities helping children. However, UNICEF not only serves significantly more countries, but their ties with governments worldwide give them a bigger voice and hence more impact on the sustainable development of children.
All the way from providing a healthy start & basic education for a bright future, to life-saving care when disaster strikes, UNICEF staffers fight for every child seeking safe shelter, nutrition, protection from disaster and conflicts, and equality.

UNICEF's work is grounded in empirical data, rigorous research and thoughtful analysis.
