UNICEF was created with a distinct purpose in mind: to work with others to overcome the obstacles that poverty, violence, disease, and discrimination place in a child's path. We advocate for measures to give children the best start in life, because proper care at the youngest age forms the strongest foundation for a child's future. UNICEF relies on the support of individuals and groups here in the United States to help raise the awareness and funds necessary to ensure that UNICEF programs operate globally. All of UNICEF's income is voluntary and receives no dues assessed to UN member states. For all of its work, UNICEF relies on contributions worldwide from governments, corporations, nongovernmental organizations, and individuals like YOU.
