What we do

Since 1993, we do whatever it takes in Tajikistan to help children survive, thrive and fulfill their potential, from early childhood through adolescence.

UNICEF's work in Tajikistan

UNICEF's country programme for 2016-2020 aims to accelerate progress towards the realization of the rights of all children, with special attention given to closing equity gaps through four components at different stages of their life cycle.

UNICEF works across sectors of child protection, health, social policy, early childhood development and education, WASH (water, sanitation, and hygiene), response in emergencies, climate change and disaster risk preparedness, children with disabilities and youth.
