What we work for
We in UNICEF, with our partners, work for and envision the day when all nations will value and care for girls and boys as equals; a day in which countries have not only placed the survival, protection and development of children among their first priorities, but also consciously promote and protect the rights, and develop the energies, of girls as well as boys; a day in which nations have ended discrimination against girls, wherever it occurs.
We work for and envision the day in which respectful relationships among girls and boys are understood to lie at the heart of a healthy and secure national future; a day in which girls and boys are educated and encouraged to know and to speak their own truths; a day in which all girls and boys have the specific knowledge and services they need to ensure a future of healthy reproduction and freedom from HIV and AIDS: a day in which being a girl or a boy is no bar to quality education, or to high achievement in any sphere.
We work for and envision the day in which all girls and boys have equal enjoyment of age-appropriate health care in accordance with their needs; a day in which girls and boys live fully and equally free from physical assault, demeaning labour, early marriage, harmful practices, abuse and exploitation, retaining undamaged their capability to enjoy the rewards of life, and embrace its full responsibilities.
We work for and envision the day in which women and men are supported by a range of services to lead mutually respectful lives with proportionate shares of domestic responsibilities and rewarding labour; a day in which children witness women and men alike achieve self-realization through continuing education and participation in public life and democratic leadership; a day in which both girls and boys recognize and claim their equal right to similar wellbeing, fulfillment and contribution to national development, securing the foundations of civil and political liberties down the generations.
