UNICEF believes

All children have a right to survive, thrive and fulfill their potential – to the benefit of a better world.

Our mission

UNICEF helps build a world where the rights of every child are fully realized. It is our conviction that nurturing and caring for children are the cornerstones of human progress.

UNICEF was created in 1946 to work with others to overcome the obstacles that poverty, violence, disease and discrimination place in a child’s path. It has global authority to influence decision-makers, and a wide variety of partners at grassroots level to turn the most innovative ideas into reality.

Who We Are

Since 1994, UNICEF’s Office in the Kyrgyz Republic has been working with civil society organizations to help the Government fulfil its obligation to empower children to fully claim and enjoy their rights under the Convention on the Rights of the Child.

UNICEF’s Country Programme 2018 - 2022 promotes the rights of every child and reaches the most disadvantaged children in the Kyrgyz Republic. UNICEF works with the Government to improve social policy and systems, and on the ground to make sure that these systems reach all children, with a particular emphasis on the most vulnerable.  

UNICEF works across sectors of health, social policy, child protection, early childhood development and education; we help supply water, sanitation and promote hygiene, nutrition and disaster risk reduction; we empower youth. UNICEF also provides humanitarian assistance when needed.
