For every child, An Advocate
For 75 years UNICEF has been an unstoppable force for change in children’s lives. From short-term relief to long-term development programmes, we have been working tirelessly to save children’s lives, protect their rights and secure their futures.
In Senegal, the past years have been an exceptional journey for UNICEF. The country has made significant progress in advancing children’s and women’s rights.
Today, children in Senegal have a greater chance of reaching their fifth birthday than ever before. Child deaths have significantly declined over the past decades, a victory for children and women. Being able to go to school is now a reality for many more children.
UNICEF and its partners have led intensive advocacy efforts in the country, resulting in substantial progress in legislations, policies, strategies and national programming.
