Four hundred and thirty children without effective caregivers have received quality educational and recreational items which were procured and donated by UNICEF to 109 alternative care centres across the country as part of a joint collaboration with the State Welfare Organization (SWO).
These items will strengthen the learning abilities of these children, among whom 196 are Afghan refugee children, living in SWO’s alternative care centres. The activity is part of a broader programme to support SWO’s capacity in protecting Afghan and Iranian children without effective caregivers.
Over 600 million children and adolescents worldwide are unable to attain minimum proficiency levels in reading and mathematics, even though two-thirds of them are in school.
Without quality education, children face considerable barriers to employment and earning potential later in life. They are more likely to suffer adverse health outcomes and less likely to participate in decisions that affect them – threatening their ability to shape a better future for themselves and their societies.
UNICEF promotes the rights and wellbeing of every child, in everything we do. Together with our partners, we work in 190 countries and territories to translate that commitment into practical action, focusing special effort on reaching the most vulnerable and excluded children, to the benefit of all children, everywhere.
