How many children do not have access to an education? Nearly 58 million children of primary school age and 63 million young adolescents are not enrolled in school.
Reggae band SOJA partnered with UNICEF's Out-of-School Children initiative to produce this video in Jigjiga, in the Somali region of Ethiopia. 3 million children remain out of school in the East African nation.
The global initiative calls for a greater investment in better data and demonstrates that reaching the most marginalized children may initially cost more but also yields greater benefits. For more on global trends regarding out-of-school children, visit: http://www.unicef.org/educa...
The official UNICEF YouTube channel is your primary destination for the latest news updates from the frontline, documentaries, celebrity appeals, and more about our work to realize the rights of every child.
Education is a fundamental human right: Every girl and boy in every country is entitled to it. Quality education is critical to development both of societies and of individuals, and it helps pave the way to a successful and productive future. When all children have access to a quality education rooted in human rights and gender equality, it creates a ripple effect of opportunity that influences generations to come.
Join the largest sing-along ever to raise awareness for child rights around the world. UNICEF has launched a new interactive digital experience, powered by TouchCast, that allows you to record your own version of IMAGINE, John Lennon’s iconic anthem of hope and peace, alongside your favourite stars.
The #IMAGINE project brings together artist Yoko Ono, renowned music producer and DJ David Guetta, UNICEF Ambassadors – including Katy Perry, Angélique Kidjo, Daniela Mercury, Priyanka Chopra, Yuna Kim – and a host of other high profile supporters with the aim of highlighting the tremendous challenges children face the world over.
Children are affected by violence in every country and at all levels of society. But it is often an invisible problem, occurring behind closed doors, or shrouded in silence born of social tolerance, stigma or taboo. UNICEF calls for global support in making the invisible visible, in filling silences with voices to end childhood violence. Join the global movement to #ENDviolence against children.
