Protecting the World’s Children

An investment opportunity for the public and private sectors


Every child has the right to live free from violence, exploitation and abuse. UNICEF works in more than 150 countries to protect children. We partner with governments, businesses, civil society organizations and communities, harnessing our 75 years of experience and expert staff to lead and pioneer to prevent all forms of violence against children. We also support survivors, including with mental health and psychosocial services. Our efforts strengthen child protection systems to ensure children can access vital social services.

Private and public sector partnerships are crucial to making this work possible. This paper lays out how supporting UNICEF is a highly effective and efficient way to invest in keeping children safe and protected, creating benefits that ripple out and scale up across countries, having an impact today and for generations to come.
