What we do
Every day, UNICEF in Belarus works to make the life of every child and teenager better. Learn what UNICEF is doing for every child in Belarus in various program areas.
Our team, thanks to the support of international donors, businesses and private donations, takes care of children in Belarus, especially the most vulnerable - those who were left without parental love, those who suffered from violence, those with disabilities and many others.
Our mission is to work on changes in healthcare, education and social development systems.
To help not just one person, but many.
So, for example, we are looking for funds for more than one boy or girl who needs a stroller or lift to school. We are fundraising and working to ensure that all children with special needs can use assistive technology and go to mainstream rather than special school.
We support every child and his family - regardless of political views, religious beliefs, racial, gender and other differences.
Because the greatest value for UNICEF is the life of a child.
In order for as many people as possible to learn about social problems and the possibilities for their solution, we talk about our work. You can find out more about what UNICEF is doing in Belarus in different areas below.
We want children to live and grow up safe and protected from all possible risks. To this end, UNICEF works in several areas: protecting children from violence at home, at school and in the social environment, ensuring access to justice for children and adolescents in contact and / or conflict with the law.
UNICEF in Belarus is working on the introduction of restorative practices for adolescents. Their essence: to help build new models of behavior, to rehabilitate, not to punish.
UNICEF in Belarus fights violence against children. We educate children, parents, teachers and other professionals about countering violence in cyberspace and how to stay safe. We also create a safe and supportive school environment.
We believe that quality healthcare is the right of every child. Together with our partners, we strive to strengthen the health care system in Belarus and support actions to protect the health of children and women.
Thanks to the implementation of HIV prevention programs in Belarus over the past 10 years, significant progress has been made in the fight against HIV infection and AIDS.
Together with partners, we are developing Teen-Friendly Centers, launched a free psychological help platform and developed a website where we have collected all the useful tips and materials for dealing with stress.
An effective system of early intervention is being created. Its main task is to identify developmental disorders in children under 3 years of age or the risks of their occurrence at an early stage.
We actively help parents and caregivers learn about positive parenting practices. We support early childhood care services and develop new ways to identify and support at-risk families.
We contribute to deinstitutionalization - the placement in families of children who are in boarding schools. We also help children to re-establish contact with their parents with the help of case management.
Together with partners, we are working to ensure that mothers, fathers and other caregivers can take better care of their children by providing a safe and supportive family environment.
We want every child and teenager to have equal opportunities in all aspects of their lives. We break down barriers so that children with disabilities can live in a family environment, get a good education and participate actively in society.
We are working to ensure that the inclusive approach is spread everywhere in preschool and school educational institutions, and children with additional needs receive knowledge next to their peers.
In order for young people to understand their rights, as well as the mechanisms for obtaining legal assistance in Belarus, we launch educational projects, make legal assistance available by creating chat bots, applications and much more.
We believe that young people should be able to speak openly about their concerns and, together with adults, solve problems that concern them. We help them develop confidence, creativity, and teamwork skills that will help them adapt to any environment in the future.
Gather data to develop and inform effective evidence-based interventions and policies.
