OUR FOCUS: SANITATION OF UNICEFDone By: Shun Hwa, TziQuan, Boon Yuan, Daniel
WHO IS UNICEF?• UNICEF is the driving force that helps build a world where the rights of every child are realized.• UNICEF was created with this purpose in mind – to work with others to overcome the obstacles that poverty, violence, disease and discrimination place in a child’s path. They believe that they can, together, advance the cause of humanity.• They believe that nurturing and caring for children are the cornerstones of human progress.
WHERE DO THEY GET THEIR FUNDSFROM?• This organisation does not cost anything because• UNICEF relies on contributions from governments and private donors and their total income for 2008 was $3,372,540,239.• Governments contribute two thirds of the organizations resources; private groups and some 6 million individuals contribute the rest through the National Committees. It is estimated that 91.8% of their revenue is distributed to Program Services.• Therefore, most of the money is provided by the government and without these fundings, this organisation can’t work.
HOW UNICEF IMPACTED PEOPLE’S LIVES• For example, Kabul, Afghanistan, joined the Call to Action for WASH in schools.• Every child has the right to access clean water, sanitation facilities and hygiene education. In Afghanistan, according to the Ministry of Education, only 45% of school children have access to clean water and only 40% of schools have separate sanitation facilities for girls and boys.• WASH in Schools encourages childrens pride in their schools and communities by providing dignity and privacy. It enables children to become agents of change for improving water, sanitation and hygiene practices within their familities and communities. It helps children realize their full potential now and prepares them for healthy living as adults, able to share this legacy when they become parents.
HOW UNICEF IMPACTED PEOPLE’S LIVES• UNICEF has installed a solar-powered water pump in the village of Guidan Gazobi, supplying safe water to a population of more than 3,000 people via seven easily accessible pumps throughout the village.• “Our burden is a lot less because we don’t have to walk for hours to fetch the water that is now available in the village,” says Ms. Yaou. “The water quality is improved significantly and it is now drinkable. Our children are healthier”• This proves that people’s lives has been improved because of the new measures that unicef has introduced.

CONSEQUENCES IF THERE IS NO UNICEF• If there is no unicef, the world will lose a very important organization as this organization has a great impact around the world.• There would be lesser places which have clean water and good sanitation that unicef has reached and these people would still be living without a proper santination and good hygiene.• Therefore, unicef is a very important organization which plays a very important role in the world.
