Unicef in Peru


Parque Meliton Porras 350
  • Miraflores
City (Peru)

UNICEF, the United Nations Children’s Fund, is the probably most widespread and recognized social welfare organizations in the world providing humanitarian and developmental aid to children worldwide.

In Peru, its country program promotes the rights of adolescents and children, and the creation of equal opportunities for each of them – regardless of gender, ethnicity, place of residence, living conditions or other status – to reach their full potential.

UNICEFs mission is that all children and adolescents, in all parts of Peru, have the opportunity to exercise their rights. Considering the inequalities that particularly affect rural populations in Andean and Amazonian regions, as well as people living in peri-urban areas, they have prioritized their presence in two Amazonian regions: Loreto and Ucayali; one Andean region: Huancavelica; and a district of Lima: Carabayllo.
