The UNICEF Lao PDR country office works in close partnership with the Lao Government, NGOs, the private sector, faith-based groups, youth groups, local communities and vulnerable children to ensure the realisation of the rights of every child in Lao PDR.

Our office is based in the Lao capital, Vientiane, and we work on projects to support children and families throughout the country. 

UNICEF works to ensure that children enjoy the rights guaranteed to them in the Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC), ratified by the Lao Government in 1991.
