Communication Programme Internship

United Nations Children's Fund

Yerevan, Armenia

UNICEF works in some of the world’s toughest places, to reach the world’s most disadvantaged children. To save their lives. To defend their rights. To help them fulfill their potential. 

Across 190 countries and territories, we work for every child, everywhere, every day, to build a better world for everyone. 

Since 1994, UNICEF works in Armenia to support the government in the design and implementation of policy reforms to address gaps in the fulfilment of the rights of Armenian children, with a particular focus on the vulnerable and excluded. Until December 2025, the country office will be guided by the latest Country Programme Document (CPD) focusing on universal, inclusive and shock-responsive social protection system; universal, affordable, accessible and quality health system; age-appropriate, life-long learning and inclusive and quality education in an enabling and safe environment, and child rights architecture, including a continuum of child protection services, justice for children and improved knowledge and skills of parents/caregivers. In light of the above, UNICEF communication and advocacy will aim to strengthen trust, showcase programme results, and raise awareness around the issues and challenges faced by children and adolescents.
