Mission and objectives

UNICEF works in some of the world’s toughest places, to reach the world’s most disadvantaged children. To save their lives. To defend their rights. To help them fulfill their potential. Across 190 countries and territories, we work for every child, everywhere, every day, to build a better world for everyone. UNICEF has been mandated by the United Nations General Assembly to promote the protection of children's rights, to help meet their basic needs and to increase opportunities for them to reach their full potential. UNICEF is guided by the Convention on the Rights of the Child and strives to ensure that these rights become enduring ethical principles and international standards of conduct towards children.


By mid-October 2023, 101,848 ethnic Armenians, including 30,000 children, fled to Armenia following the escalation of hostilities in their region of origin. At the beginning of October 2023, the Armenia Country Office has launched a Humanitarian Action for Children appeal for 12 M USD to respond to the needs of the population affected by the displacement. UNICEF is implementing activities in Education, Child Protection, Social Protection, WASH, and Health and Nutrition sectors. Furthermore, UNICEF is leading the Education, Cash, and Child Protection inter-agency Working Groups to ensure effective coordination of the implementation of the Armenia Refugee Response Plan October 2023 – March 2024. As of mid-February 2024, over fifty percent of the necessary funds for addressing the needs of the affected population have been secured, significantly intensifying the burden of donor reporting within strict timeframes. Monitoring of the implementation and reporting requires dedicated efforts to coordinate, collect, quality assure and process relevant data from implementing partners. For this purpose, UNICEF is actively seeking to hire a Planning and Monitoring Assistant to support the Country Office team by carrying out a range of programme support functions to help develop, implement and monitor the country programme and humanitarian response, ensuring effective and timely delivery that is consistent with UNICEF rules and regulations. The Planning and Monitoring Assistant will work in close collaboration with programme and operations sections of UNICEF, external partners, and agency counterparts in support of programme design and delivery. S/He will provide regular feedback on the status of projects through monitoring milestones and advises on improvements to keep activities on track.
