TITLE SLIDEEvery child should have rights. In Canada, children have their own rights for growth, protection, and development. However, this is not the truth in developing countries. Children’s rights are constantly being violated still to this day.WHOThe UNICEF, or The United Nations Children’s Fund, (which of course, is ran by the United Nations) skip is an organization in helping protect the rights of every child. Headquartered in New York City, the organization states that “all children have a right to survive, thrive, and fulfill their potential— to benefit of a better world.” This program is ran by the United Nations with its intent to promote the rights of every child from providing basic survival needs like food and immunization all the way to providing helpful services like sports.WHATWHENIn December 1946, the originally called- United Nations International Children’s Emergency Fund was created by the United Nations General Assembly to provide emergency food, healthcare, and immunization to children in countries that had been devastated by WWII. It was basically a WWII relief program. Many children had a huge impact left of them after the war. After 1950, UNICEF’s commission was extended indefinitely in order address the long-term needs of children and women in developing countries. In 1953, it became a permanent part of the United Nations System, eventually dropping the words International and emergency from its name.HOWUNICEF is dedicated to protecting children’s rights. The organization wants what’s best for every child. It’s primary focus is to help children survive. Providing food and clean drinking water is one. In developing countries, clean water is not abundant, meaning washing hands can be more difficult, and drinking contaminated water is a common sign– which results in diarrhea. The UNICEF wants to help stop this issue. The organization also works toward spreading immunization. Vaccines are an urgent need developing countries, as diseases are widespread in undeveloped countries. Every year, 1.5 million children die because they weren’t vaccinated.Other than helping children survive, the UNICEF encourages play among children. UNICEF’s just play programme, a program regarding sports and interaction, gives children the knowledge and skill to develop healthy lifestyle habits and to become confident in their abilities. There are lots of benefits regarding this.WHEREUNICEF is the world’s leading advocate for children’s rights. Until now, it has reached out to 190 countries and territories. Look at the map. Areas with red are countries and territories where UNICEF tends to work the most. These countries are developing countries that has issues regarding child or infant mortality, child labor, child abuse, child neglect, child marriage… there’s a whole list of this. These countries’ children need the most help. The continent Africa contains the most countries in need, however middle-eastern countries like India and Indonesia are also one of the most developing countries with a common sight of forced labor, including the contrevorcy of Nike sweatshops if anyone is taking geography this semester. Impoverished children like the boy on the right are commonly found in these developing countries. And that boy is not just one children in need– he is among one of the hundreds of millions of people in these developing countries who needs help. It is the UNICEF’s goal skip to provide help to everyone in need.WHYUNICEF used to be a organization who provides relief to children in WWII. Today, the UNICEF is helping children in need– worldwide– as the organization name states. In the world, there are still millions of children who are denied rights to be healthy and restricted of what they needed to grow up healthy of strong. Because of their place of birth; because of their race, ethnicity or gender: or because they have a disability or live in poverty — these children’s lives can go severely downhill without any support from any organization, namely the UNICEF.
