UNICEF
International Organization based in United States of America

UNICEF is the leading humanitarian and development agency working globally for the rights of every child. Child rights begin with safe shelter, nutrition, protection from disaster and conflict and traverse the life cycle: pre-natal care for healthy births, clean water and sanitation, health care and education.

UNICEF has spent over 60 years working to improve the lives of children and their families. Working with and for children through adolescence and into adulthood requires a global presence whose goal is to produce results and monitor their effects. UNICEF also lobbies and partners with leaders, thinkers and policy makers to advance the access of all children to their rights—especially the most disadvantaged.

report UN Children's Fund

posté le FÉVRIER 8, 2016 par CHRISTELLE TUNDA

Elle ne vient ni de l’orient, ni de l’occident, encore moins d’un endroit où coule le lait et le miel. Elle ne joue pas avec une poupée barbie ou une patinette, elle n’a jamais été à disneyland, elle ne connait pas les aventures de « Tintin », elle n’a pas entendu parler de « Simba », le roi lion et dans son école, il n’y a pas de cantine scolaire. D’où vient-elle, alors ? D’un village assaini tout simplement. Son prénom ? Mima. Toute une histoire!
