UNICEF began providing assistance to Eswatini after 1968. Since then, we and the Eswatini government have been partners in ensuring that every child enjoys their rights.
Who we are
UNICEF Eswatini is committed to work with the Government of the Kingdom and all partners including children and adolescents, communities, civil society, faith based organisations and private sector to accelerate progress on child rights implementation, so that for every child, every right is fulfilled.
In our mission to protect and fulfill the rights of children and women, we at UNICEF Eswatini pledge our commitment to the value of integrity, love, success, health and vitality, by:
- Placing children’s interest first, especially the less fortunate
- Being honest and professional in all our dealings
- Building good team relationships through mutual support
- Ensuring a healthy working environment
- Solving problems together and being open to new ideas
The 2016 -2020 Government of Eswatini and UNICEF Country Programme adopted a life cycle approach to ensure that children’s needs are addressed at each stage of their development with more emphasis on the second decade ensuring that adolescents are learning, protected and develop effectively. This programme contributes to the achievement of United Nations Development Assistance Framework outputs as the United Nations in Eswatini moves towards delivering as one and achieving the Sustainable Development Goals.
