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 & Partnerships (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 Partnerships team is to drive income growth from Corporates, Foundations and Major Donors. The pillar will lead the development of these existing and new areas to grow these income streams as well as developing relationships at a global level with high value individual supporters and large-scale international foundations.
