UNICEF works to protect the rights of every child in over 190 countries including Bangladesh
UNICEF has been working to improve the health and well-being of children in Bangladesh since 1952. UNICEF has been witness to many historic events in Bangladesh, always ready to help: from providing emergency relief for war refugees in 1971 to assisting Rohingya refugee children who fled their homeland in 2017.
There are 57 million children in Bangladesh today, accounting for a third of the population of the country. UNICEF works closely with the Government to build the best possible future for them. Our goal is to ensure that every child in Bangladesh has the best start in life, is able to thrive and can develop his or her full potential.
To meet these objectives, we use our technical expertise and work with partners to address challenges facing children in Bangladesh: health, nutrition, education, protection, and water, sanitation and hygiene.
UNICEF Bangladesh has field offices in all eight administrative divisions, covering all 64 districts. Our success relies heavily on collaborations with partners, donors, civil society organisations and local communities.
UNICEF is mandated to protect every child under the Convention on the Rights of the Child. We work in the world’s toughest places to reach the most disadvantaged children and adolescents – and to protect the rights of every child, everywhere. Across more than 190 countries and territories, we do whatever it takes to help children survive, thrive and fulfill their potential, from early childhood through adolescence.
The world’s largest provider of vaccines, we support child health and nutrition, safe water and sanitation, quality education and skill building, and the protection of children and adolescents from violence and exploitation.
Before, during and after humanitarian emergencies, UNICEF is on the ground, bringing lifesaving help and hope to children and families. Non-political and impartial, we are never neutral when it comes to defending children’s rights and safeguarding their lives and futures.
And we never give up.
