Actions for children

Innovative and cost efficient strategies to ensure that all children, especially the most disadvantaged and vulnerable children, get the best start to life; reach their full potential through learning; are protected from violence and exploitation; and are positively engaged. 

UNICEF works closely with the Government of Jordan and civil society partners to ensure that vulnerable and disadvantaged children continue to access basic services for their survival and well-being.
