For Every Child, AN ADVOCATE:
In an effort to measurably improve UNICEF’s ability to deliver better results for children, 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. This is why the focus on equity is so vital. It accelerates progress towards realizing the human rights of all children, which is the universal mandate of UNICEF, as outlined by the Convention on the Rights of the Child, while also supporting the equitable development of nations.
The Resource Mobilization and Partnership (RM&P) section works with the corporate sector, Foundations and Major Donors to maximize income and drive income growth. There are three pillars within RM&P. The purpose of the Corporate Fundraising unit is to drive income growth from the corporate sector as part of an integrated corporate engagement strategy. Income growth will come from three sources: i) the renewal and growth of existing in-country and multi-country partnerships, ii) the development of new strategic partnerships and iii) the support given to state offices to develop and strengthen their state level fundraising capacity and skills.
