UNICEF works in the world's toughest places to reach the most disadvantaged children and adolescents - and to protect the rights of every child, everywhere. Across 190 countries and territories, the organisation never gives up and does whatever it takes to help children survive, thrive and fulfil their potential, from early childhood through adolescence. UNICEF's work is funded entirely through the voluntary support of millions of people around the world and partners in government, civil society, and the private sector.
What are UNICEF Inspired Gifts?
Inspired Gifts are real, life-saving and life-changing gifts that are distributed to children and their communities around the world throughout the year. Not only do they provide the receiver with a great sense of satisfaction, they also provide a practical item for the field; helping save, improve and protect the lives of the world's most vulnerable children. Each gift you buy is delivered to the field.
All of the items featured in the Inspired Gifts part of this website are genuinely needed and used by the programmes that UNICEF supports. However, realistically, there are only so many of certain types of Inspired Gifts such as exercise books for schools or blankets for babies that are required and so if you have purchased an Inspired Gift your donation will not necessarily be used to purchase the item shown but will be used to help UNICEF to continue with its full range of work right around the world.
