UNICEF promotes the rights and wellbeing of every child, in everything we do. Together with our partners, we work in more than 190 countries to translate that commitment into practical action, focusing special effort on reaching the most vulnerable and excluded children, to the benefit of all children, everywhere.

We provide education & health care, immunisation & nutrition, water & sanitation, child protection & emergency relief. We also work in Ireland, advocating for children, educating and empowering young people.

UNICEF Ireland is a registered charity. We’re funded entirely by voluntary contributions from individuals, businesses, foundations and governments. We are committed to finding the best and most cost-effective ways to save children’s lives.

Join us. Together, we will build a better world for children.
