Description of charity’s activities and outcomes
UNICEF Australia works directly to relieve poverty with a specific focus on improving the welfare and rights of children. In 2013, UNICEF Australia mobilised funds to assist this core work; providing improved child protection systems, advancing basic education, promoting child survival and development, targeting HIV and responding to humanitarian crises. Leveraging the support of our private and corporate donors, UNICEF Australia also directly supported programs across the Pacific, in Indonesia, Myanmar, Cambodia and Laos. The focus areas of our directly supported programs are child protection, education and nutrition, reaching children in the bottom quintile, where poverty is most extreme.Generous support from the Australian community was greatest for the ongoing conflict in Syria and Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines, enabling UNICEF to reach 930,000 affected people with access to safe water and children with education materials in the Philippines and support the 260,000 children who have been displaced by the Syrian crisis with basic health care, psychosocial support and primary education.UNICEF continues to educate and advocate on and for the rights of children in Australia. We welcomed the appointment of a National Childrens Commissioner in 2013, to amplify this area of our work. Our Youth Ambassador program is a direct focus of this approach that appoints young people across Australia to advocate for improved outcomes for marginalised children.
