A warm, safe home is a child’s right. A childhood free from harm is a child’s right. Access to healthy food is a child’s right. ​For millions of children, this isn't always the case.​..

Throughout the world, millions of children are suffering because of man-made and natural disasters, violent conflicts and devastating epidemics. The COVID-19 pandemic has put a huge strain on our emergency response teams as we attempt to reach already burdened families and their children.

Millions of children worldwide suffer from violence, neglect and abuse every day, and COVID-19 is only making it worse. UNICEF NZ is asking you to put your knowledge of these issues to the test to help raise awareness.

By taking the quiz today you’ll be helping each and every one of them receive a second chance at childhood during these uncertain times.

Take our ‘Fight For Their Rights’ quiz and test what you really know about the unacceptable levels of child poverty, preventable deaths, lack of education, and abuse in vulnerable communities. These are confronting topics, but they aren’t issues that will simply go away if we all ignore them.

Can you answer this question;
How many children aged 5-17 worldwide do not go to school?

If your answer is no - we need you to take the quiz now and ‘Fight For Their Rights.’

About UNICEF New Zealand

UNICEF New Zealand is one of 33 UNICEF National Committees, which raise funds for UNICEF’s worldwide emergency and development work. UNICEF is the global authority on children's rights. No other organisation has UNICEF's experience, expertise and reach.

Every child is born with fundamental human rights, but conflict, disease, exploitation and poor education keep millions of children from reaching their full potential. UNICEF fights for every child's right to survive and thrive into adulthood. UNICEF's mission is to create a better world, by advocating for the protection of children's rights. To do this, we bring people together: governments, donors, humanitarian agencies, businesses and children themselves. This is what UNICEF does, every day, for all children around the world.

We want health, education, a fair go and protection, for every child.

As the novel coronavirus has spread, so has misinformation – fueling discrimination and stigma. UNICEF NZ is working with health experts to promote facts over fear, bringing trustworthy tips and guidance to parents, caregivers and educators. We’re also on the ground in more than 190 countries, partnering with front-line responders and providing them with the information and resources they need to keep children healthy and learning, protected from sickness and violence.

Thanks to your support, we’re able to continue our vision towards a world where no child goes hungry, misses out on a quality education, or dies of a preventable disease.

Thank you again for spreading awareness about this issue and doing your part to build a fairer future, particularly during such an unprecedented time.
