The Goals to the Future
"Meeting the education goal will help speed up progress to all other millennium development goals"
What UNICEF is doing to promote education
Conclusion of the Goals and Aftermath
Unicef takes on all the MDG's, which all connect to one another. For example, one cannot go to school if they are malnourished, and one cannot achieve environmental sustainability if they lack money and resources to develop sustainable technology. Considering the sheer size of the world and its population, Unicef will most likely never reach its goal to eliminate poverty, educate all children, or complete the Goals. There will NEVER not be a need for Unicef.
educated girls are more likely to marry later and have fewer children
educated children are paid better in the workplace, and can participate in more social, economical and political decision making
For example, in the world of 100 stimulation, some continents only allowed males and
females to vote
Schools provide a safe environment and supervision, so parents can go to work
Children learn how to prevent the spreading of diseases, like Malaria, HIV/AIDS and other life saving skills
They may also receive vaccines, fresh water and nutrient supplementation at school
UNICEF provides multi-sectoral support beyond funding
UNICEF stages global campaigns, on how important it is to get children to 你好school, especially girls
these global campaigns involve many peoples, including children, parents, religious leaders, famous people from sports such as soccer and cricket, to help get the word out
UNICEF also works with governments to address issues such as gender discrimination, child labor, school fees and lots of other things that keep children from going to school
UNICEF helps abolish school fees and helps governments make a decision in laws reducing other costs to get to school; this is what UNICEF calls, "An essential learning package."
children cannot go to school if they are sick and malnourished, which is why UNICEF procures, raises awareness, and distributes vaccines for children in the developing world
they also teach children how to prevent Malaria, Guinea Worm, and Anemia
"Poverty is a situation that people want to escape"
UNICEF has partnered up with UNGEI (United Nations Girls' Education Initiative)
also known as the United Nations Children's fund created by UN general
assembled on December 11, 1946
provides emergency food and healthcare to children in countries that have been devastated by World War II
They have been working with about 190 countries to promote survival, protection and development
Future and Present: Why we should care
headquarters in New York City
now, UNICEF provides long term humanitarian and developmental support to children and mothers in developing countries
-After they declared freedom, the country experienced civil wars, lack of secondary economic activity, and trade deficit
-Country was under "Mother Country" control, and was entirely dependent on them (economically)
-No tertiary services (healthcare, education) because of this, families had more children to provide income for family
-No birth control
now, UNICEF is well known as the United Nations International Children's Emergency Fund
-Country experienced debt because of the failed attempts to restart the economy
-Lack of resources (food, water, shelter, clothing) for citizens but also lack of money to purchase them
-Citizens are forced to live on the "bare minimum " have little money to buy food, are forced to do labour for low income
-Leads to illegal selling of drugs, criminal activity (protests), and child labour, this demotes the country more
-Little economic activity, so government is
forced to use illegal/controlling methods to
guarantee money for the economy
Our Ideas!
speeding up to completion of the education goal will help with all other millennium goals
factors that prevent children from going to school are:
they are too sick to go
they are stuck with the burden of trying to provide food and water for their family
Schools are to far, so its time consuming to walk
If Unicef will never achieve their goal, what is the point in helping them?

Why should we care? Because we have been told not to be bystanders, not to blindly walk by an unjust situation and just "feel bad" for the victims. Nor should we live a life ignorant of the poverty in the other world.

Consider the following:
Are They Successful?
What we think SHOULD be done
to make children go to school, UNICEF should build really good schools, and at school, give children simple first aid, food, clean water, and vaccines
that way, they don't have to spend their whole day trying to get food and water; meals will be provided to them, and children can bring home food for other family members
first aid and vaccines will help children if they get sick, so they can be healthy, not sick with burden
UNICEF should also place schools so that they are evenly distributed, This can help children from different areas to attend school without walking for hours
The country ends up the same or worse than before: The country/government does not have resources or money to buy them and their national image deteriorates
2/3 illiterate adults are women
Did you know that UNICEF won the Nobel Peace prize in 1965 and the Prince of Astrurias award of Concord in 2006?
UNICEF relies on donations from governments and private donors
Developed Countries
Mid-Developed Countries
Developing Countries

UNICEF is not successful considering that they don't have a "SMART" goal: specific, measurable, attainable, realistic, time-bound
UNICEF does have a time limit- by 2015
however, their project is not specific, measurable, attainable, or realistic
even UNICEF itself states that: "But the pace of progress is insufficient to ensure that, by 2015, all girls and boys complete a full course of primary schooling."
UNICEF's Objectives
UNICEF was created with on big objective in mind: "to work with others to overcome the obstacles such as poverty, violence, disease and discrimination in place in a child’s path to a good future"
just like how doctors advocate for their patients, UNICEF advocates for children to have a good start in life
promote a basic education for all girls
work to assure equality for those discriminated against
UNICEF upholds the conventions of rights of a child
work towards the Millennium goals and works with the United Nations Charter
UNICEF's Initiatives
The Innocenti Declaration (1990) is UNICEF's strategy to protect, promote, and support breastfeeding.
Why breastfeeding?
UNICEF believes that breast milk is the Best Start to Life
no manufactured product can be equal to it
breast milk contains all the nutrients, antibodies, hormones and antioxidants a baby needs to thrive
protects babies from diarrhea, acute respiratory infections (common cold, influenza, pneumonia, and strep throat), stimulates their immune system against diseases and vaccines
also has health and emotional benefits for the mother (decreased blood loss postpartum, delayed return to fertility, decreased risk of of breast and ovarian cancer, increases bonding between mother and child)
UNICEF is also helping infant feeding in emergencies.
UNICEF partnered with World Health Organization to establish The Baby Friendly Hospital Initiative in 1991.
UNICEF supports World Breastfeeding Week.
Goal: Changing Quality Of Life For Children
thorough studies, UNICEF studies the world from a child's POV
UNICEF thinks that it is important that children should be key informants when it comes to analyzing their quality of life and well-being
UNICEF thinks that the children's perceptions, evaluations and aspirations should be what we regard as their "Well being"
Where does UNICEF work?
Since UNICEF is a really big organization, it works in over 190 countries (there are 196 countries in the world).
practical programmes in over 150 undeveloped countries which is where 88% of its staff is located
UNICEF is also prepared when disaster strikes, delivering life saving help for children
UNICEF is the world's largest distributor of vaccines, delivering vaccines to one third of the worlds children
Syria: UNICEF is helping Syria as the crisis continues, providing clean water, food, shelter, health care for children and their families
Haiti: UNICEF vaccinated millions after the 2010 big earthquake
West Africa: UNICEF provided food, supplies, and healthcare
East Africa: 2011 drought brought many desperate for UNICEF's help; UNICEF has already set up a couple of emergency food and water stations in places such as Kenya
Where does UNICEF get its money from?
UNICEF is funded entirely by voluntary contributions
main sources of income: individuals, trusts, businesses, governments, community organizations, student fundraising through schools
monthly giving program: UNICEF global parent- is a program that provides long term assistance to children and communities in 150 countries
UNICEF also sells small things like greeting cards
UNICEF makes key partner ships
Who Does UNICEF Benefit?
children suffering from poverty, lack of education
disabled children
children discriminated against
children suffering from aftereffects of natural disasters
children all over the world who require UNICEF's help
UN Millennium Goals
Since UNICEF was created by UN, it tackles all of the eight millennium goals.
UNICEF is making a huge impact
in the world, helping over 190 countries, 150 in particular. It helps countries in desperate times, or when natural disaster strikes. There will never not be a need for UNICEF.
