Area of expertise details : ÃƒÂ Ã¢â Å Care : Because 'care' has been embedded in our DNA from the start. UNICEF was founded in 1946 to care for children devastated by war.
Today, we care for, and support, children, young people and mothers around the world, in every context. This care must extend to how we work with one another, often in stressful environments where insecurity and risk are a daily fact of life.
ÃƒÂ Ã¢â Å Integrity : Because UNICEF's reputation depends on all of us acting with honesty and transparency, and setting the highest standards for ourselves as we work with partners, donors and the global community.
ÃƒÂ Ã¢â Å Respect : Because our programmes can only be effective if the recipients of our support feel understood and respected, and if we pay our colleagues at all levels the same respect that we want for ourselves.
ÃƒÂ Ã¢â Å Trust : Because we cannot deliver effective programmes and services if communities do not believe that we are acting with their best interests at heart, and if we do not trust one another to do the right thing at all times.
ÃƒÂ Ã¢â Å Accountability : Because public and private donors, as well as children and vulnerable people worldwide, deserve to know how UNICEF's programmes are run, how resources are spent, and how results are being achieved.
