UNICEF’s vision is of a world where the basic rights of every child will be met.
UNICEF works in over 190 countries to promote and protect the rights of children. The world’s largest provider of vaccines for developing countries, UNICEF supports child health and nutrition, clean water and sanitation, quality basic education for all boys and girls, and the protection of children from violence, exploitation, and HIV.
In Australia, UNICEF advocates for the rights of all children to be realised and works to improve public and government support for child rights and international development.
UNICEF has the global authority to influence decision-makers, and the variety of partners at grassroots level to turn the most innovative ideas into reality. That makes UNICEF unique among world organisations, and unique among those working with the young.
All our work is funded by the voluntary contributions of individuals, businesses, foundations and governments – not by the United Nations. Through contact with UNICEF, the lives of millions of children have been changed for the better.
Together, we can do so much more. click here for more…

A photography exhibition about climate change in Bangladesh by Rodney Decker
Rodney Dekker is an Australian documentary photographer and multi-media storyteller with a particular interest in environmental and social issues. When he visited Bangladesh late in 2008 to work on a series called ‘Tides of Resilience’ the people he met had a profound impact on him.

In remote places where I could have felt isolated I was able to connect through our common humanity; through their kindness and generosity, I felt welcome. It is these qualities, mixed with resilience and resourcefulness, that rebuilds their lives. click here for more…
