We’re building a new UNICEF.org.
As we swap out old for new, pages will be in transition. Thanks for your patience – please keep coming back to see the improvements.


UNICEF has spent more than 60 years advocating for children’s rights, which means a lot of experience with sport and the right of play for children.

UNICEF’s work with sport is grounded in its mission to ensure that every child has the right to play and sport in a safe and healthy environment – a right founded in Article 31 of the Convention on the Rights of the Child and other international treaties.

Team UNICEF is a new platform to feature the many activities, events and processes UNICEF has in place to promote sport and the right of play, together with a spirit of collaboration, teamwork and energy that sport evokes.
