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

UNICEF supports health, nutrition, HIV prevention, education, safe drinking water, sanitation and protection for children and families caught in the conflict in eastern Ukraine. The office follows a sequenced, zonal differentiated approach: 70 per cent of its humanitarian efforts support children in areas with ongoing conflict. This includes deploying rapid response teams, using inter-agency humanitarian convoys, ensuring contingency planning and pre-positioning critical supplies, and working with local administrations and civil society partners.

In more accessible zones, national systems, municipalities and civil society organizations will be engaged, combining the humanitarian emergency response for displaced and returning populations with recovery and development support.

How can you make a difference?


  1. Situation monitoring
  • Identify and report key emerging issues and trends from field visits, with a focus on issues affecting the humanitarian situation of children and women. Monitor and report on the unmet needs of women and children in the affected areas.

  • Provide technical support for rapid assessments (inter-agency or independently) to be carried out within the first 48-72 hours of significant changes in the humanitarian context.
  • Participate substantively in the sub-national Assessment Working Group in the east, including to align situation monitoring efforts with other operational agencies within the area of responsibility.

2. Programme  performance monitoring 

  • Plan and undertake high-frequency visits to monitor the progress of UNICEF programming, including the performance of implementing partners and supporting end-user supply monitoring, as a complement to third-party monitoring. Identify delays, bottlenecks, unmet needs and undelivered supplies
  • Ensure a regular feedback loop, so findings and recommendations from field visits are looped back into programming. Keep track of follow-up actions.
  • Systematically collect beneficiary feedback on UNICEF services and supplies, including appropriateness and satisfaction, and loop this feedback into programming.

3. Continuously strengthen information management systems

  • Provide technical support to programme and emergency colleagues to collect, manage and analyze data on the Field Office response, including data from government and implementing partners.
  • Support the innovation, piloting, use and scale up of tools for the collection, analysis and visualization of data to support management, decision-making and programme accountability and improvement, including mapping and other online, offline, interactive and/or static tools (PowerBi, Kobo, ArcGIS, etc.)

4. Capacity  building of field office colleagues

  • Support the adoption and adaptation of Country and Regional Office monitoring and information management tools for use in the Field Office including training colleagues, where required.
