Currently, UNICEF has formal agreements with hundreds of NGOs and individual leaders in 160 countries around the world, ranging from large networks such as the Save the Children Alliance to village water committees.
With advances in communication technology, there are many new opportunities for involving an increasingly wide range of not-for-profit organizations and movements in theáGlobal Movement for Children, a collective worldwide force ┐ for and with children ┐ devoted to creating a world fit for children.á UNICEF and NGOs are able to share data and lessons learned in promoting respect for children's rights to health, education, equality and protection.
