Working to reach every child – wherever they live, however they learn
UNICEF is on the ground in over 190 countries and territories, working across borders and barriers to reach children with the learning opportunities they need to succeed. Non-political and impartial, we're never neutral when it comes to protecting a child's right to education. With over 200 colleagues working across sectors on digital education, UNICEF has the expertise needed to ensure quality learning reaches every child.
But we cannot do it alone. We team up with communities, governments and businesses to:
1. Make digital learning equitable and safe
We work with governments to make digital learning platforms and solutions run effectively offline or with limited connectivity, function on low-cost devices, are accessible and inclusive for children with disabilities, and translate into local languages and cultural contexts. Our solutions also adhere to global best practices for online safety and data protection.
2. Improve the quality of digital learning
We use evidence to design and implement digital learning programmes that are flexible and personalized, adapting to each learner's level. Our focus is on strengthening literacy and numeracy, plus digital skills, so children build a foundation for lifelong learning.
3. Integrate digital learning across settings
We build the capacity of teachers and administrators to apply digital pedagogies and technologies, and help caregivers and communities support high-tech and low-tech digital learning. We ensure digital learning reaches children in emergencies and humanitarian contexts.
