Our Partners

Civil society organizations, including international non-governmental organization (NGO) partners, are closely involved in UNICEF’s work in 190 countries where UNICEF is active.

The challenges facing children exceed the capacity of any single organization – by far. Building a world that is fit for children requires the partnership of every government, every individual and every organization sharing the values of the United Nations (UN) and a respect for children's rights.

Strategy for shared success

‘Partnerships for shared success’ is one of UNICEF’s strategies for implementing the World Fit For Children plan of action, a rigorous plan for promoting healthy lives, providing quality basic education, combating HIV/AIDS and protecting children from abuse, exploitation and violence that was agreed to at the UN Special Session on Children in May 2002.

UNICEF partners with eminent and ordinary individuals, civil society organizations, corporate entities, voluntary agencies, philanthropic foundations, trade unions, faith-based organizations, academic and research institutions -- and, of course, children and young people themselves.
