We believe that sport has the power to change children’s lives and we're working to ensure that every child has the right to play. 

Sport and play are a crucial part of every child’s life. By taking part in sport, children learn to develop self-confidence, motivate themselves and lead active lifestyles.

We also use sport as a tool to shine a spotlight on the issue of children’s rights and to help raise valuable funds for our work with children. 

2014 is a exciting year for UNICEF and sport. With the help of our partnerships with Glasgow 2014 and sports organisations, Soccer Aid, our celebrity supporters and most importantly, you, Team UNICEF is bigger than ever before.
