Thinking of a Career in Emergency Management?
- BY Nicole Pelette
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.
And we never give up.
UNICEF South Asia, through effective support to country offices and strategic engagement with partners, contribute to winning support for the cause of children from decision makers and the wider public particularly on key priority issues in South Asia. This includes providing technical assistance, capacity building and coordination to enhance digital advocacy in the region.
In the past few years, UNICEF South Asia has achieved an unprecedented reach and engagement through its social media platforms with more than 1.7 million followers. Many of our audiences not only seek information but are willing to have important conversations on crucial issues concerning children’s well being and rights. Our strategic focus is to ensure greater understanding and participation and meaningful engagement with our online audiences such as young people, parents, political influencers across the region. This also provides us an opportunity to win our audiences’ support for the cause of children in South Asia.
