UNICEF has been supporting the Government of Georgia for more than 20 years in realizing children’s rights and meeting its obligations under the Convention on the Rights of the Child. Our goal is to protect and foster greater social inclusion of the most vulnerable children and reducing disparities and inequities affecting children and their families. 

We work to protect all vulnerable children from poverty, abuse, violence, exploitation and loss of family care. 

We work with the Government and civil society partners as well as international development partners to protect all vulnerable children from poverty, abuse, violence, exploitation and loss of family care. 

We advocate for the reduction of child and maternal mortality, ending all forms of violence against children, improving social protection of children, prioritizing early child development, including pre-school education, improving general education with a focus on 21stcentury skills and competencies, ensuring family environment for every child, strengthening social inclusion of children living with disabilities and changing negative social norms and stereotypes.     

We furthermore support the Government of Georgia in collecting comprehensive data on the situation of children and mothers to support decision making and development of effective evidence based policies to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
