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.
Fundraising is responsible for and leads all UNICEF’s private sector fundraising
activities in Mexico. The incumbent will develop and realize a fundraising
strategy to maximise growth in funding from individual supporters, and from corporate
and philanthropic partners. The Chief Fundraising will work under the general
