UNICEF was selected at the start of the 2008/09 season as the Rangers Charity Foundation's international partner. Rangers is the charity's only Scottish football partner and only the sixth partner club in world football alongside the likes of Barcelona, Manchester United and Brondby.

In September 2010, the Rangers Charity Foundation announced its support for UNICEF's work in Togo with a project to reconstruct and equip seven healthcare centres. The Foundation has pledged £200,000 for the two year project which will help improve the lives of thousands of children and their families by providing better access to basic medical care, water and sanitation facilities and life-saving nutrition for malnourished children.

In 2008/09 the Foundation funded an education programme in Rajasthan, India. The programme aimed to increase school admissions; improve the learning environment and teaching facilities and fund a campaign that identifies and helps young girls who have been unable to complete primary school.
