Mission and objectives

UNICEF promotes the rights and wellbeing of every child, in everything we do. Together with our partners, we work in 190 countries and territories to translate that commitment into practical action, focusing special effort on reaching the most vulnerable and excluded children, to the benefit of all children, everywhere.

In all of its work, UNICEF takes a life-cycle based approach, recognizing the particular importance of early childhood development and adolescence. UNICEF programmes focus on the most disadvantaged children, including those living in fragile contexts, those with disabilities, those who are affected by rapid urbanization and those affected by environmental degradation.

UNICEF was created with a distinct purpose in mind: to work with others to overcome the obstacles that poverty, violence, disease and discrimination place in a child’s path. We advocate for measures to give children the best start in life, because proper care at the youngest age forms the strongest foundation for a person’s future.

We promote girls’ education – ensuring that they complete primary education as a minimum – because it benefits all children, both girls and boys. Girls who are educated grow up to become better thinkers, better citizens, and better parents to their own children. We act so that all children are immunized against common childhood diseases, and are well nourished: no child should suffer or die from a preventable illness. We work to prevent the spread of HIV/AIDS among young people because it is right to keep them from harm and enable them to protect others. We help children and families affected by HIV/AIDS to live their lives with dignity.

We are UNICEF, the United Nations Children’s Fund.


This UNV assignment is part of the ROSA SBC/C4D section to support the coordination and scale up of a cross-regional initiative aiming to reinforce the use of the Internet of Good Things (IoGT), a platform that hosts mobile-packaged content designed to make life-saving and life-improving information available for free, even on low-end devices.

This UNICEF-led initiative aims to bridge the digital divide by providing localized and relevant content to parents, caregivers, young people and frontline workers. The platform also provides training opportunities, referral information to access essential services as well as a space to provide feedback through polls. The UNV assignment will contribute to the “Scaling-up Internet of Good Things for Social and Behaviour Change in Eastern and Southern Africa and South Asia” cross-regional initiative. The incumbent will mainly focus on supporting South Asia region. However, exchanges and coordination are envisaged with the East and South Africa (ESA) and headquarters (HQ) components of the initiative.

The cross-regional initiative will run up to December 2022 and is expected to achieve the following targets: Target 1: After 12 months of programming, increase the number of adolescents and young people visiting and interacting with IoGT resources and engaging with Social and Behaviour Change content in ESA and SA over a 12-month period by at least 40%. Target 2: After 12 months of programming, increase the number of adolescents and young people reached by mental health and psychosocial support content, SRH/HIV information and climate change content through IoGT by at least 40%. Target 3: After 12 months of programming, increase the representation of women and girls in two-way engagements on IoGT by at least 8%. Target 4: After 12 months of programming, increase the number of frontline workers engaged in two-way communication through IoGT by at least 40%.
