For Every Child 

UNICEF MAKES A DIFFERENCE FOR CHILDREN ALL OVER THE WORLD  We work in 190 countries around the world to reach every child in need.  Every day children face violence, disease and hunger. They are forced to flee their homes from conflict, natural disasters or violence. They are denied an education, healthcare and their childhood.

With the support of people like you, we have saved millions of children’s lives. Unicef ensures more of the world’s children are vaccinated, educated and protected than any other organisation. We have done more to influence laws and policies to help protect children than anyone else.

For 70 years we have been there for children in danger. Unicef was created in 1946 to help protect children after World War 2 and the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child is the basis of all of our work. Today we’re still helping children in some of the world’s most dangerous places.


UNICEF Ireland wants to support you to start a global movement for change beginning in our own communities. Stay connected online with other activists like you.
