ALL RIGHTS FOR ALL CHILDREN WITH NO CHILD LEFT OUT
WHO WE ARE
UNICEF Office was established in Moldova in 1995 to support the Government address the needs of children, young people and their families. We work with partners to ensure that all children enjoy their rights to health, education, protection, participation and non-discrimination.
UNICEF in Moldova pays particular attention to the most vulnerable children – those deprived of parental care, the poor and the marginalized, children with disabilities, Roma, children affected by abuse and violence either at home, at school or in an institution. Through its upstream and downstream work UNICEF is reaching the „invisible” children by making sure that there are services in place to support them and that people and communities are ready to accept them. An inclusive society with all children and families benefiting each other’s values and abilities is the key guiding principle of the current UNICEF-Moldova Country Programme.
