IWFCI has been operating in Mongolia since 2017, focusing on strengthening environmental, social, and economic-friendly private sector governance and increasing the efforts of the private sector to create an inclusive society. Starting from 2019, with UNICEF technical support, IWFCI has gradually started to introduce and promote “Children's Rights and Business Principles” in the activities of their member organizations.
Under the MoU, UNICEF and IWFCI Mongolia will focus on protecting and respecting children's rights in business activities, and promoting family-friendly workplaces.
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.
