UNICEF works in some of the world’s toughest places, to reach the world’s most disadvantaged children. To save their lives. To defend their rights. To help them fulfill their potential.

Across 190 countries and territories, we work for every child, everywhere, every day, to build a better world for everyone.

And we never give up.

For every child, Hope

The fundamental mission of UNICEF is to promote the rights of every child, everywhere, in everything the organization does — in programs, in advocacy and in operations. The equity strategy, emphasizing the most disadvantaged and excluded children and families, translates this commitment to children’s rights into action. For UNICEF, equity means that all children have an opportunity to survive, develop and reach their full potential, without discrimination, bias or favoritism. To the degree that any child has an unequal chance in life — in its social, political, economic, civic and cultural dimensions — her or his rights are violated. There is growing evidence that investing in the health, education and protection of a society’s most disadvantaged citizens — addressing inequity — not only will give all children the opportunity to fulfill their potential but also will lead to sustained growth and stability of countries. This is why the focus on equity is so vital. It accelerates progress towards realizing the human rights of all children, which is the universal mandate of UNICEF, as outlined by the Convention on the Rights of the Child, while also supporting the equitable development of nation.

How can you make a difference?

UNICEF in Mozambique has been very successful in mobilizing resources during the current programme cycle both due to external factors and solid relationships with key donors. Nevertheless, different exercises including the Country Programme Evaluation (CPE) highlight the limited quality of reporting and accountability for results at the outcome level. UNICEF has also expanded its influence with the private sector, including business associations and platforms, and is progressively contributing to an enabling environment that further unpacks public-private partnerships and innovative engagement models within the CPD 2022-226, where children are positioned at the center of sustainable development.

Considering the expansion of the country programme and the complex development and humanitarian context with a multifaceted partnership landscape of traditional donors, multilaterals, NatComs, business, foundations, platforms, complex coordination platforms  and innovative funding and financing mechanisms, among others, MCO will establish a Partnerships and Resource Mobilization Unit (PRMU) under the Representative as part of the broader external communication and advocacy portfolio to be able to strategically manage and develop strategic partnerships to support the achievement of the results of the CPD 2022-2026 and leverage resources for children.

In line with the Public-Private Partnerships and Resource Mobilization Strategy for 2022-2026, the key objectives of the PRMU are to:

  1. Sustain a strong base of public sector partners and strengthen fundraising, to financially support the country programme outcomes, and engage in high level advocacy actions for child rights, across the humanitarian-development spectrum.
  2. Strengthen public and private sector engagement and expand partnerships across platforms and stakeholders to leverage the child rights agenda in Mozambique.
  3. Spearhead models and scale up innovative partnership strategies and synergies (e.g., innovative financing), to increase investments in children and leverage financing to achieve Agenda 2030 for children in Mozambique.

Key function, accountabilities, and related duties/tasks

1. Financial and non-financial engagement with the private sector, including UNICEF National Committees (NatComs).

2. PPP and innovative financing mechanisms in support of children ‘s agenda.

3. Strengthen influence, engagement and leverage through evidence generation, capacity building and tools development:
