Expanding opportunities for learning

UNICEF Bangladesh operates on the basis of children's lifecycle, tracking their complex needs from before birth to adolescence.

An innovative approach, it allows sectors such as Education to converge with other UNICEF sectors for addressing common priorities while maintaining a similar pace.

Priorities for children vary depending on their age and are implemented in partnership with the Government of Bangladesh. Below are three such priorities.
