Closing date: 17/09/2017 (day/month/year)
The fundamental mission of UNICEF is to promote the rights of every child,
everywhere, in everything the organization does — in programs, in advocacy and
in operations. The equity strategy, emphasizing the most disadvantaged and
excluded children and families, translates this commitment to children’s rights
into action. For UNICEF, equity means
that all children have an opportunity to survive, develop and reach their full
potential, without discrimination, bias or favoritism. To the degree that any
child has an unequal chance in life — in its social, political, economic, civic
and cultural dimensions — her or his rights are violated.
There is growing evidence that investing in the health,
education and protection of society’s most disadvantaged citizens — addressing
inequity — not only will give all children the opportunity to fulfil their
potential but also will lead to sustained growth and stability of countries.
This is why the focus on equity is so vital. It accelerates progress towards
realizing the human rights of all children, which is the universal mandate of
UNICEF, as outlined by the Convention on the Rights of the Child, while also
supporting the equitable development of nations.
