Many religious communities are already providing direct services and have the ability to identify and refer vulnerable children and families who need additional support. They thus play a myriad of roles for the care and protection of children.

UNICEF has long been collaborating with religious communities in all areas of its programming at the global, national and local levels. This section will present examples of the diverse and creative nature of these partnerships to highlight the potential for action through strategic engagement.
