The Aims and Objectives of UNICEF
- To nurture and care for children.
- To work with others to overcome the obstacles that poverty, violence, disease and discrimination place in a child’s path.
- To advocate for measures to give children the best start in life.
- To promote girls’ education – ensuring that they complete primary education as a minimum.
- To ensure that children are immunized against common childhood diseases, and are well nourished, because it is wrong for a child to suffer or die from a preventable illness.
- To prevent the spread of HIV/AIDS among young people because it is right to keep them from harm and enable them to protect others.
The Achievements of UNICEF
- UNICEF worked for the survival, protection and development of Nigerian children.
