UNICEF wants to make sure that all children in Brazil can enjoy their rights, particularly those who have been excluded from the country’s progress and those who grow up in especially vulnerable circumstances. To achieve its goals, UNICEF works both at national level to influence policies and programmes for children as well as in the regions where most of the disadvantaged children live: in the Semi-arid and Amazon regions and the large cities. We aim to broaden the base of our supporters and to strengthen people’s engagement by involving them in different actions and projects for children and adolescents. For this we need YOU. If you are committed to children’s rights and to improving their chances in life, contact us.
