The challenges facing children exceed the capacity of any single organization – by far. Building a world that is fit for children requires the partnership of every individual and every organization sharing the values of the United Nations (UN) and a respect for children's rights.
This includes eminent and ordinary individuals, civil society organizations, voluntary agencies, philanthropic foundations, trade unions, faith-based organizations, academic and research institutions -- and, of course, children and young people themselves.
Strategy for shared success
‘Partnerships for shared success’ is one of UNICEF’s strategies for implementing the World Fit For Children plan of action, a rigorous plan for promoting healthy lives, providing quality basic education, combating HIV/AIDS and protecting children from abuse, exploitation and violence that was agreed to at the UN Special Session on Children in May 2002.
Collaboration with energetic and diverse networks of non-governmental institutions at global, regional, national and community level has long been a hallmark of UNICEF’s work. It has also been a source of UNICEF’s strength, as the wide and diverse network of our partners multiplies the impact of our efforts.
