UNICEF Belarus signed an annual working plan with the administration of Brest region
Cooperation for children
The working plan and agreement was signed on November 2 in Brest. Thanks to it, UNICEF will work closely with local authorities to improve the work of hospitals, schools, kindergartens and other organizations and programs that promote children's interests.
The plan is aimed at cooperation in four areas – health, education, social protection and emergency response. Almost all cities and districts of Brest oblast will be involved.
Within the framework of the agreement the parties will continue working on the expansion of the inclusive education centers network, provision of psychosocial support to the most vulnerable families and children, as well as on the expansion and improvement of services for children, including children with disabilities, orphans, and refugees.
"It is very important for us to work with local authorities so that we can pay enough attention to children in the regions and not leave anyone behind," said Rustam Haydarov, UNICEF Representative in Belarus.
The working plan and agreement will be implemented by UNICEF's national partners: the public sector, public organizations and the business community.
UNICEF Belarus plans to sign similar plans with other regions of the country to strengthen cooperation.
