Together, we are working toward the day when ZERO children die from preventable causes and every child has a safe and healthy childhood.
UNICEF is experienced. UNICEF has saved more children’s lives than any other humanitarian organization in the world. We have global reach, expertise, and the access and influence it takes to get things done in difficult places and emergency situations.
Because UNICEF is relentless. UNICEF will do whatever it takes to save a child. Stopping wars so children can be vaccinated. Bringing lifesaving food and water to places no one else can reach. We work with government leaders, civic figures, celebrities, corporations, campus groups, churches, teachers and people just like you—anyone willing to help us advocate for the survival and wellbeing of every child.
We believe in a world where ZERO children die of things we can prevent."

"Our mission is to mobilize and deploy private sector resources to advance availability, access and use of micronutrients, especially vitamin A, among at-risk populations in need."
Vitamin Angels reduces child mortality worldwide by connecting essential nutrients with infants and children under five. Essential nutrients enable young immune systems to fight infectious diseases, helping children attain good health and the opportunity to lead meaningful and productive lives.
We focus on the people that others forget. People in poverty. People who face discrimination. People whose voices are ignored.
We help people fight for the rights that they are denied. Simple things, like the right to eat. The right to stay on their land. To an education. To have a
say in the decisions that shape their lives.
We’re not about giving handouts or telling people what to do, because in the long run we know that doesn’t work. Instead, we use our resources, influence and experience to help people find their own solutions.
We listen to what people really want and need. We help communities take action together to hold their governments to account, and we give local
organisations our support where they need it. Together, we’re making a lasting difference.
