UNICEF FRANCE

L’UNICEF promeut et défend les droits de l’enfant tels qu'ils ressortent de la Convention des Nations unies y afférant.

L’UNICEF France a pour principales missions de :
- sensibiliser le public aux droits et conditions de vie des enfants dans le monde ainsi qu’à l’action de l’UNICEF ;
- collecter des fonds et (après déduction de ses frais de fonctionnement) les reverser à l’UNICEF qui les affecte à la réalisation de ses objectifs.

UNICEF Nepal

UNICEF promotes the rights and wellbeing of every child, in everything we do. Together with our partners, we work in 190 countries and territories to translate that commitment into practical action, focusing special effort on reaching the most vulnerable and excluded children, to the benefit of all children, everywhere.
In all of its work, UNICEF takes a life-cycle based approach, recognizing the particular importance of early childhood development and adolescence. UNICEF programmes focus on the most disadvantaged children, including those living in fragile contexts, those with disabilities, those who are affected by rapid urbanization and those affected by environmental degradation.
UNICEF was created with a distinct purpose in mind: to work with others to overcome the obstacles that poverty, violence, disease and discrimination place in a child’s path.

Development of an informative platform for young migrants

University of California, San Francisco

The UCSF School of Nursing offers coursework and training for disaster preparedness for nurses. Our nurses volunteer for local disasters such as floods and fires, as well as international disasters such as Hurricane Katrina, the Ebola outbreak in West Africa and the earthquake in Haiti. Many victims are children and nurses are key to favorable outcomes and stability in such settings.

UNOCHA - The UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (Geneva)

OCHA is the part of the United Nations Secretariat responsible for bringing together humanitarian actors to ensure a coherent response to emergencies. OCHA also ensures there is a framework within which each actor can contribute to the overall response effort.

OCHA's mission is to:
* Mobilize and coordinate effective and principled humanitarian action in partnership with national and international actors in order to alleviate human suffering in disasters and emergencies.
* Advocate the rights of people in need.
* Promote preparedness and prevention.

USAHello

USAHello uses technology to help refugees build new lives in the US. We offer online services and programs to help refugees and asylees gain the skills they need to achieve their goals and have successful resettlement experiences.
Mission
USAHello facilitates successful refugee resettlement transitions by strengthening access to resources and helping refugees build community through shared knowledge.
USAHello’s interactive, multi-language website provides educational opportunities and general information about American society, and connects refugees with services, programs, and organizations in their new communities.
Vision
USAHello envisions a world of peace and justice in which refugee resettlement is unnecessary. Until that day, RCO envisions a resettlement process in which communities celebrate refugees and the stories and cultural traditions they carry, and in which refugees feel empowered to lead fulfilling, dignified lives.

Vienna NGO Committee On Drugs

The Vienna NGO Committee on Drugs (VNGOC) was established in 1983 to provide a link between non governmental organisations (NGOs) and the Vienna-based agencies involved in setting drug policy: the UN Commission on Narcotic Drugs (CND), the International Narcotics Control Board (INCB), and the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC). We also work closely with our sister New York NGO Committee on Drugs (NYNGOC) when working with other UN bodies such as the General Assembly (GA) and the Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC).

Vredesactie

Vredesactie is a pluralistic organisation that is part of the peace movement, making a radical plea for a society in which conflicts are resolved without violence or the threat of violence. Vredesactie is an engine for the development of non-violent action and the realization of a pacifist peace policy.

Wapa International

Raise funds to support small local organizations that help reintegrate victims of war (ex-child soldiers, widows of war, orphans...) in post-conflict countries around the world and strengthen skills, competencies and abilities of the people and communities.
Why does WAPA work in post-conflict countries?
Armed conflicts are the reality in almost all the regions of the world with revolting and dramatic consequences.
Civil populations always pay a heavy price with death and invalidity. Moreover, thousands of people become refugees either by crossing the boarders of by finding a place in internally displaced people camps.
These conflicts breed war crimes, aggressions and other atrocities: child soldiers, sexual crimes on children, women and men, mutilations and torture. When civil wars are over, the suffering and the challenges continue: famine, illnesses, poverty, expropriation, stigmatisation, depression, lack of schooling.
The people lose everything, including their human dignity.
