A day at the office can mean many things to UNICEF staff. It could mean talking with a 14-year-old former child soldier about their experiences, or finding funding for vital supplies for children during an emergency, or dedicating each day to efforts to eradicate a killer disease.
It's not all drama, of course.
Much of the organization's work is all but invisible: securing funding for HIV/AIDS or immunization programmes, for example, or chipping away at political inertia, or setting up structures for effective emergency response. And there's the vital task of building alliances with local communities, helping them to ensure the education, protection and wellbeing of their own children.
This selection of UNICEF staff profiles aims to give you an insight into the way the organization works, day by day, to improve the lives of individual children around the world.
