UNICEF's Fight for Equality

One out of every 20 children aged 14 or younger — 93 million kids around the world — are living with a moderate or severe disability of some kind. Many are invisible, excluded from school, hidden by their families and abandoned by their governments. We believe that regardless of ability, all children have a right to reach their full potential.

Removing Barriers so Kids Can Flourish

From 2014 to 2017, UNICEF invested more than $1.2 billion in social inclusion programs, supported by more than 195 professional staff in 155 country offices. UNICEF helps governments in 157 countries to provide critical social protection legislation and programs for the most vulnerable and marginalized children.
