UNICEF works in some of the world’s toughest places, to reach the world’s most disadvantaged children. To save their lives. To defend their rights. To help them fulfill their potential.

Across 190 countries and territories, we work for every child, everywhere, every day, to build a better world for everyone.

And we never give up.

For every child, [insert tagline]

La mission fondamentale de l'UNICEF est de promouvoir les droits de chaque enfant, partout, dans tout ce que fait l'organisation - dans ses programmes, ses activités de plaidoyer et ses opérations. La stratégie d'équité, qui met l'accent sur les enfants et les familles les plus défavorisés et exclus, traduit en action cet engagement en faveur des droits de l'enfant. Pour l'UNICEF, l'équité signifie que tous les enfants ont la possibilité de survivre, de se développer et de réaliser leur plein potentiel, sans discrimination, partialité ou favoritisme. Dans la mesure où un enfant n'a pas les mêmes chances dans la vie - dans ses dimensions sociales, politiques, économiques, civiques et culturelles - ses droits sont violés. Il est de plus en plus évident qu'en investissant dans la santé, l'éducation et la protection des citoyens les plus défavorisés d'une société - en s'attaquant aux inégalités - on donne non seulement à tous les enfants la possibilité de réaliser leur potentiel, mais on favorise également la croissance soutenue et la stabilité des pays. C'est pourquoi l'accent mis sur l'équité est si vital. Elle permet d'accélérer les progrès vers la réalisation des droits de l'homme de tous les enfants, ce qui est le mandat universel de l'UNICEF, comme le souligne la Convention relative aux droits de l'enfant, tout en soutenant le développement équitable des nations.
