UNICEF works in some of the world’s toughest places, to reach the world’s most disadvantaged children. To save their lives. To defend their rights. To help them fulfill their potential.

Across 190 countries and territories, we work for every child, everywhere, every day, to build a better world for everyone.

And we never give up.

For every child, Hope

The fundamental mission of UNICEF is to promote the rights of every child, everywhere, in everything the organization does in programmes, in advocacy and in operations. The equity strategy, emphasizing the most disadvantaged and excluded children and families, translates this commitment to children’s rights into action. For UNICEF, equity means that all children have an opportunity to survive, develop and reach their full potential, without discrimination, bias or favoritism. To the degree that any child has an unequal chance in life — in its social, political, economic, civic and cultural dimensions — her or his rights are violated. There is growing evidence that investing in the health, education and protection of a society’s most disadvantaged citizens — addressing inequity — not only will give all children the opportunity to fulfill their potential but also will lead to sustained growth and stability of countries.

UNICEF Tunisia is supporting the ongoing reform of the national social protection system for the implementation of social protection floor guarantees, including the children’s pillar, through the gradual introduction of a universal allowance for children. In response to the socio-economic impacts of COVID-19 on children, UNICEF has been since 2020 supporting the introduction of specific cash transfers for children from families enrolled in national social assistance programmes.

The transfer of allowances to children from poor and vulnerable families is accompanied by complementary activities (cash+ approach) on child protection, early childhood development, food security and nutrition, education etc. to ensure that children receive integrated care that meets all their needs to better address the vulnerabilities they face. The child allowance programme is complemented by communication campaigns on the start of the school year and on positive parenting, including messages on the importance of early stimulation, vaccination and a balanced diet for young children. The implementation of the programme requires an important communication and capacity-building component for social workers and the national system.

UNICEF Tunisia action and support contribute to the national vision of establishing the national social protection floor, which aims to ensure universal social protection coverage by 2030. In this regard, UNICEF Tunisia actively coordinates all implemented activities and works closely with all national stakeholders and technical and financial partners active in the social protection sector.
