UNICEF, the only organization of the United Nations dedicated exclusively to children, works with other United Nations bodies, governments and non-governmental organizations to assist in children’s needs through community-based services in primary health care, basic education, and safe water and sanitation in more than 150 developing countries.

UNICEF shares the Kiwanis family’s global commitment to children and has provided its extensive resources and leadership to assist in the Global Campaign for Children, The Eliminate Project: Kiwanis eliminating maternal and neonatal tetanus. UNICEF and Kiwanis previously worked together for the Worldwide Service Project to virtually eliminate Iodine Deficiency Disorder (IDD) from the globe.
