Mission and objectives

UNICEF Ethiopia is implementing a 5-year country programme 2020-2025 which is fully aligned with the UNSDCF. UNICEF will work collaboratively within the UNSDCF on a joint strategy to strengthen national systems for data collection, analysis, monitoring and applying adjustments to promote equity. Evidence will be used to monitor the situation of children, tracking progress towards equity and scale, and to inform advocacy to adjust policies, strategies and budgets. Monitoring and corrective actions will be undertaken through UNICEF staff, partners and third-party monitoring, and through mechanisms for community feedback and accountability to affected populations.


The fundamental mission of UNICEF is to promote the rights of every child, everywhere, in everything the organization does — in programmes, in advocacy and in operations. The equity strategy, emphasizing the most disadvantaged and excluded children and families, translates this commitment to children’s rights into action. UNICEF supports child health and nutrition, good water and sanitation, quality basic education for all boys and girls, and the protection of children from violence and exploitation. UNICEF supports the Federal Government of Ethiopia to accelerate progress for children, work to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and help children realize their rights under the Convention on the Rights of Children. This will be made through, among other things, strong partnerships with regional governments, health professionals, teachers, frontline workers, religious and community leaders, social mobilisers, communities and families, and the children and adolescents themselves. UNICEF will work so that: • Every child survives and thrives -- being in good health, immunized, and accessing nutritious food. • Every child learns. • Every child is protected from violence and exploitation and registered at birth. • Every child lives in a safe and clean environment, with access to safe drinking water and adequate sanitation. The Administrative & Finance Assistant/Operations Assistant, under direct supervision of Account Associate, and as guided by the Chief of Field Office will support the implementation of HACT activities, asset management, administrative stores management and assist in travel and transport management.
