Companies are important partners for children
UNICEF does everything it can to fulfill the rights of every child in Vietnam, particularly the most disadvantaged and excluded. We believe in ZERO preventable deaths, ZERO children denied access to school, ZERO malnourished children, ZERO children suffering from violence, abuse or neglect.
We cannot do this alone.
For more than 50 years that UNICEF has been in Vietnam, we have always partnered with government, NGOs, religious organizations and private sector to achieve our goals. As Vietnam’s economy grows each year, the role of the private sector becomes increasingly important in the work of ensuring the survival and protection of all children in Vietnam.
Companies can partner with UNICEF to achieve our goals for Vietnamese children.
UNICEF has global partnerships with the most respected companies in the world who have put children at the top of their social responsibility priority. Some of these include IKEA, Unilever, P&G, Starwood Hotels, Montblanc, GUCCI, H&M, ING, FC Barcelona, MAC, UNIQLO, Qantas, and many more.

Why UNICEF Viet Nam?
UNICEF is the leading children’s organization in Vietnam and globally. Our work is carried out in 191 countries, supporting child health and nutrition, good water and sanitation, quality basic education for all boys and girls, and the protection of children from violence, exploitation and AIDS.
Why invest in children?
Some kids are left behind.
Fast economic growth in Vietnam has widened the gap between rich and poor, and as a result many children are being left behind. These children are invisible to most of society and often lack basic necessities like shelter, clean water, education and protection. Ensuring that every child goes to school, has access to quality healthcare, is fed with nutritious meals and is protected from abuse and exploitation is fundamental to creating a healthy, literate and ultimately more productive society.
Every third child in Viet Nam is poor
By any measure, Viet Nam has made tremendous progress for its children over the past two decades, a remarkably short time. However, child poverty is much more prevalent than commonly believed. Using contemporary measures of child poverty – which consider children’s basic needs and rights, – including education, healthcare, nutritious food and safe water, shelter, sanitation, and protection from unsafe work and abuse – shows that almost one third of all children in Viet Nam under the age of 16 are poor.
