About us

With a strong presence in Nigeria, UNICEF is a leading advocate for children. We have the global authority to influence decision makers and the variety of partners at the grassroots level to turn the most innovative ideas into reality. We believe that nurturing and caring for children are the cornerstones of human progress. UNICEF was created with this purpose in mind - to work with others to overcome the obstacles that poverty, violence, disease and discrimination place in a child's path.

To learn more about our work, visit the What we do section. To access our publications and studies visit the Publications section.

Nigeria was one of the very first African countries where the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) established a programme of cooperation. Today UNICEF is still working in partnership with many stakeholders, including children and families, to achieve national and international goals instrumental in the fulfillment of children’s rights.
