Children around the world are having their rights denied every day. UNICEF is working in 193 countries to protect these rights, making sure children's voices are heard and listened to.
UNICEF IS FUNDED ENTIRELY BY VOLUNTARY CONTRIBUTIONS. WE RECEIVE NO FUNDING FROM THE UN BUDGET.
Sally, 3, lives on the streets of Manila, capital of the Philippines, with her mother, stepfather and four siblings.
Street children like Sally are denied the right to a childhood, education and health care.
Right now, Sally’s prospects are bleak. Sally’s mother is herself a former street child. Her stepfather drives a motorbike taxi, earning around £1.60 a day. It’s not enough to get the family off the streets.
