For more than 60 years, UNICEF has been a key advocate for, and contributor to the realization of children’s rights in Senegal. We strive to leave no child behind. We focus on the most vulnerable and disadvantaged children to make sure that they are given the best chance for a healthy life, a childhood of fulfillment and protection from harm.
Guided by the Convention on the Rights of the Child, UNICEF calls for all children to have their rights protected, their basic needs met and their potential expanded to the fullest.
Making sure that children are able to live healthily, that they can learn and develop their skills and capacities, and that they are kept safe from violence, abuse and exploitation is essential to human progress. This is why UNICEF mobilizes political will and material resources to help the Government develop policies and deliver services for children and their families.
UNICEF pays particular attention to the most disadvantaged children – children affected by disasters and climate change, extreme poverty, violence, exploitation and discrimination, including girls and children with disabilities and supports their survival, development and protection.
Senegal’s children deserve our best. That is why we work tirelessly with our partners to deliver results for children. Results that are driven by evidence. Results that are sustainable. Results that have made a tangible difference in children’s lives.
