Make your contribution now to improve children’s lives in Kazakhstan
All funds raised will be used to implement UNICEF's current and future country programmes to ensure equal opportunities for children and teenagers, especially for the most vulnerable, in the exercise of their rights to quality health services, decent education and preparation for adult life, protection from all forms of violence, indifference and extreme poverty, and to establish social norms and concepts for the well-being of children.
Your donation will enable UNICEF to increase the scale of programmes that are consistently being implemented in the following priority areas: prevention of violence, creation of a friendly and safe environment, inclusive and quality education, fight against malnutrition and obesity, reducing infant and child mortality associated with preventable diseases, neglect, trauma and natural disasters, and mental health care for children and young people.
It is important that every child reaches his or her full potential and has equal opportunities to develop his or her talents.
Children from vulnerable families need special support. UNICEF's role is to ensure that the rights of every child are exercised at the systemic level in partnership with the Government.
UNICEF pays special attention to the development of alternative programmes and family forms of upbringing of children (adoption, legal guardianship, etc.) in the cases when children are left without parental care.
Make your contributions now to help change children's lives for the better.
Thanks to your contribution, you are working with UNICEF to protect and develop children in Kazakhstan. We will do everything we can to protect children. Wherever they are. Whoever they are. Whenever they need us.
