Partnerships are at the heart of everything UNICEF does. The power of partnerships allows us to advocate, forge, nurture, present appeals, mobilise financial and operational resources, organise collective responses, and leverage support to close equity gaps and to address the most pressing child rights violations. In line with our global Strategic Plan, we work with partners to accelerate progress towards the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and, together, form a rights-based agenda for children that has a strong focus on the most vulnerable.
UNICEF is funded entirely by voluntary contributions and relies heavily on the generosity and commitment of our partners. UNICEF joins forces with several public sector partners (governments, UN agencies, international financial institutions and global programme partnerships) who have a catalytic role in areas of UNICEF’s work. UNICEF also partners with private companies, foundations, other UN agencies, civil society organisations, and local communities to reach all children in need and to help amplify their voices.
UNICEF’s overall revenue of $6.7 billion in 2018 was invested in delivering results for children in development and humanitarian settings, enabling UNICEF and partners to achieve significant results. UNICEF strengthens partnerships through a results-based focus, from project proposals to reporting on results achieved.
In 2020, UNICEF will be celebrating its 73rd anniversary. 2019 marked the 30th anniversary of the Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC). Without the support of the partners over the years, it would have not been possible for UNICEF to remain so committed to realising the rights and meeting the changing needs of the world’s children and young people. We are also committed to opening up opportunities for all.
In Chad, which has some of the worst social indicators in the world, UNICEF works with various partners and builds alliances to defend the rights of children, and to help them fulfil their potential, from early childhood through adolescence. UNICEF places particular focus on the 4 Key Results for Children (KRCs) - so that every girl and boy is immunised, has equitable access to quality education, has a birth certificate and lives in a healthy environment with adequate water and sanitation infrastructures.
We would like to thank all our partners for making a difference for the children and women of Chad. We hope to continue collaboration.
