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.

For every child, [insert tagline]

Mauritania, officially named the Islamic Republic of Mauritania, is a West African country. It has borders with Algeria, Western Sahara, Mali and Senegal, and access to the Atlantic Ocean, which look like straight lines because they were drawn by a colonizing country, France. Its capital is Nouakchott.

This country is very arid. A large part of its territory is desert, which explains the small number of the population despite its large surface area. The population density, in terms of the number of people per square kilometer, is low (about 3 people per km²).

UNICEF mission is to promote the rights of every child, everywhere, in everything the organization does – in programmes, in advocacy and in operations.
