Summary of activities

Our vision is that every child deserves a fair chance. Our new four-year strategy developed in 2017, is a necessary response to the tremendous needs of children around the world. Sadly, 385 million children still live in extreme poverty; 264 million children and young people are out of school and 5.6 million children under the age of five died last year from preventable diseases. Even in Australia, one in six children are still living under the poverty line. So we know that we can do better. UNICEF Australia continued to respond to the tragic circumstances affecting children in conflicts in Syria, Yemen and Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). New and emerging crises such as the South Sudan food crisis, and the Rohingya refugee crisis in Bangladesh have kept our teams busy coordinating fundraising appeals, raising awareness and advocating for greater responses from individual donors, governments and regional powers.Guided by the Sustainable Development Goals, in the priority areas of child survival, child protection, early childhood development (ECD) and water and sanitation, last year we expanded our ongoing support to 14 prioritised programs in Papua New Guinea (PNG), Laos, Indonesia, Myanmar, Fiji, Kiribati, Solomon Islands, Timor Leste and Zimbabwe. We are able to make a difference with our Directly Supported Programs, thanks to Australian government accreditation, funding and generous donations received from the Australian public our Global Parents, Global Guardians and dedicated fundraisers and our corporate partners. We are truly grateful for the ongoing support.UNICEF Australia also plays a key role defending childrens rights in Australia. We have expanded the impact of our Policy and Advocacy team by championing the best interests of children for decision-makers during policy-making, and we are conducting an extensive child-consultation project, with a report to be produced in late 2018.
