UNICEF won't stop elevating children's voices. Mission Unstoppable
 

Children are concerned about humanity’s future. As those with the most at stake, their voices deserve to be heard. UNICEF is listeningChildren are concerned about humanity’s future. UNICEF knows they have the most at stake and works to ensure their voices are heard

Kids need UNICEF now more than ever:

  • Globally, estimates suggest that there are at least 93 million children with disabilities, but numbers could be much higher. COVID-19 and the socio-economic crisis it has fueled have marginalized them further, exposing them to greater risk
  • An estimated 36 million children — more than ever before — have been displaced due to conflict, violence and disaster. They are full of potential and hope but lack opportunities to realize them
  • At the COVID-19 pandemic’s peak, around 1.8 billion children lived in countries where violence prevention and response services were disrupted
  • Children and young people, including those who live in countries most vulnerable to climate change, need to have a meaningful say in the environmental and climate policies determining the fate of their planet
  • School closures at the pandemic's height affected up to 94 percent of students worldwide, with at least one-third left with no way to learn remotely
  • 10 million more child marriages are predicted stemming from COVID-19 stay-at-home orders, poverty and disrupted prevention programs as families marry off their teen daughters to relieve economic duress

UNICEF-supported peer educator Shobha was empowered to help give teenage girls in Jalna, India, the freedom that comes with riding a bike. "Only the boys in our village own bicycles. The girls don't," says Shobha. On borrowed bikes, Shobha and others helped the girls learn how to ride — turning heads in the village and changing families' minds about girls' rights to determine their own futures.
