Context

UNICEF Office in Djibouti is committed to ensure every child and young person benefits from opportunities to survive, develop and reach their full potential. A special focus of the UNICEF Djibouti Programme is on the most vulnerable groups, including children from the rural areas, children with disabilities, children living in poverty. While various social factors, beliefs and norms affect the realization of children rights in Djibouti, UNICEF undertook concrete steps to explore and better understand them, to support evidence based programming and create a supportive environment for children and their families.

The fundamental mission of UNICEF is to promote the rights of every child, everywhere, in everything the organization does — in programs, in advocacy and in operations. The equity strategy, emphasizing the most disadvantaged and excluded children and families, translates this commitment to children’s rights into action. For UNICEF, equity means that all children have an opportunity to survive, develop and reach their full potential, without discrimination, bias or favoritism. To the degree that any child has an unequal chance in life — in its social, political, economic, civic and cultural dimensions — her or his rights are violated. There is growing evidence that investing in the health, nutrition, 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.
