What we do
Wherever they are, whoever they are, we reach them and we never give up!
This year 2022, UNICEF will celebrate its 70th anniversary in Sudan, having started delivering programmes for children and women in 1952, with a permanent office established in the capital, Khartoum, in 1974.
UNICEF is mandated by the United Nations General Assembly to advocate for the protection of child rights, to help children fulfill their basic needs and to expand their opportunities to reach their full potential.
Through life-saving interventions, UNICEF Sudan contributes to national efforts that enable all children and adolescents in Sudan, especially those in the most vulnerable situations, to have their rights progressively fulfilled and to develop to their full potential in an inclusive and protective environment.
UNICEF works with partners to reach every child, always and everywhere with basic services and protection. We apply a life-cycle approach in our programming, which starts with pregnant women and follows the child when she or he is born, develops, learns and thrives until adulthood.
By investing in girls and women, UNICEF aims to break the cycle of
intergenerational poverty and provide individuals, communities and
societies with the support and skills needed to reach their full potential.
