70 YEARS AND COUNTING
Seven decades ago, the world was recovering from a devastating world war. For millions of child survivors of that war, peace still encompassed a landscape of significant challenges and damaged futures. UNICEF was created to help those children – no matter who they were, no matter where they were from. The only thing that mattered for the nascent organization was achieving results for children in need.
The Emergency Telecommunications Sector (ETS) deployed vital communications services at the humanitarian hubs in Ngala and Bama.
The ETS received a new contribution from the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and it is now 79% funded.
The ETS is working on the recruitment of local staff to support the operation in the long-term.

Director of Political Affairs,
In 2013, Afra* was abducted from her home in Northeastern Nigeria by the Boko Haram insurgent group that forced her to marry one of its members. She was 13 years old. When he died a few months later, Afra was made to marry another fighter. It was only in September 2016 that she was rescued from captivity by the Nigerian military and brought to a camp for internally displaced persons.
The Working Group is focusing on early recovery of conflictaffected people, the stabilization of their livelihoods and the support to planning for and implementation of durable solutions to displacement in the most affected states of North East Nigeria. The working group is in close collaboration with the other sectors, ensuring a coordinated, complementary approach.
