Sharing the South Africa Story

At UNICEF South Africa, we have targeted our programmes to reduce levels of child poverty and shrink the deep-seated inequalities found in South Africa today. We do this by focusing on Early Childhood Development. Ending Violence against Children,and Results for Adolescents. Below are investment cases that tell the South Africa story (September 2017).

Early Childhood Development
