About us

Established in 1946, the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) promotes the rights and wellbeing of every child, in everything we do. Together with our partners, we translate that commitment into practical action, focusing special effort on reaching the most vulnerable and excluded children, to the benefit of all children, everywhere.

UNICEF has had a presence in South Africa since the end of apartheid and continues to work towards bettering the lives of children in the country.

From its office in Pretoria, the UNICEF South Africa Country Office works with a range of partners in government, civil society, academia and various other sectors to create a safer and healthier environment for every child.

Through the support of both individual and corporate donors, UNICEF is able to undertake its work, both globally and in South Africa. There are many ways to donate to help children. The fastest and easiest way is to donate online.
