BANGKOK, 10 January 2023 – Thanyaporn Krichtitayawuth, the Executive Director of Global Compact Network Thailand (GCNT), and Kyungsun Kim, UNICEF Representative for Thailand, signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) today to strengthen the collaboration between the private sector and UNICEF to advance the achievement of the SDGs in Thailand contributing to fulfilling the rights of every child in the country.
The partnership focuses on enhancing family-friendly policies and practices in the private sector, advancing young people’s skills and employability, especially for those who are out of school, strengthening the protection of children in the digital space through collaboration with the information and communications technology sector, and rallying support from the private sector on several issues that concern children and young people the most, such as access to quality education, physical and mental health services, action against climate change, etc.
The partnership will take effect from 14th January 2023, on National Children’s Day.
UNICEF promotes the rights and wellbeing of every child, in everything we do. Together with our partners, we work in 190 countries and territories to translate that commitment into practical action, focusing special effort on reaching the most vulnerable and excluded children, to the benefit of all children, everywhere.
