UNICEF and the Government of Turkey are working together to ensure that projects and services to benefit children reflect their needs as whole beings, whose survival, growth, psycho-social and cognitive development are intertwined and interdependent.

UNICEF has been active in Turkey since 1951, advocating for the protection of children’s rights, helping to meet their basic needs and expanding opportunities for each child to reach their full potential.

The focus and scope of UNICEF’s activities in Turkey have evolved greatly over the years, from its first project to distribute free milk to schools, to its current activities which are rights based and take a more holistic approach to child survival, development and protection.
