We work across Latin America and the Caribbean to improve the lives of the most deprived children. Our regional priorities are adolescents, migrant and displaced children, and children affected by violence.
Our child protection work focuses on strengthening national and local child protection systems. When children migrate, we make sure they are safe and protected by cross-border and regional mechanisms.
We also support Venezuelan children and their families who have fled to Colombia and Peru, providing safe spaces and education for children, sexual and reproductive health services and cash transfers to help Venezuelan families to rebuild their lives.
In our education work, we provide teachers and community volunteers with the necessary skillset, strengthen capacities of local authorities and deliver education materials to the poorest children.
To protect children’s right to health, we train community members on primary care, strengthen health authorities’ capacities and provide sexual and reproductive health services. Our nutrition programmes serve children from rural communities most prone to malnutrition.
