This grant represents Canada’s institutional support to the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF). UNICEF uses these funds, along with other donor funding, to achieve its mandate. Guided by the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, UNICEF supports the rights of children to help meet their basic needs and expand opportunities to reach their full potential. It seeks to improve the social and economic conditions of children by ensuring that they have access to health care, clean water, food and education, are protected from violence and abuse, and receive relief in disasters. Canada’s support to UNICEF helps to advance children’s survival, the equal rights of women and girls as well as their full participation in development.
