UNICEF is a leading advocate for children globally. UNICEF is the driving force that helps build a world where the rights of every child are realized. UNICEF has the global authority to influence decision-makers, and a wide range of partners at grassroots level to turn the most innovative ideas into reality. UNICEF believes that nurturing and caring for children are the cornerstones of human progress. 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. The goal of the Country Programme of Cooperation between the Government of Lesotho and UNICEF is to advance the rights of all children and women to survival, development, participation and protection. UNICEF’s work in Lesotho is divided in four programme areas namely: Health and HIV, Social Policy, Planning and M&E, Basic Education and Child Protection
