Joniste survived Ebola but her three-year-old son did not. Now immune to the disease, she returned to the UNICEF-supported clinic where she was treated to feed, hold and soothe babies at risk or orphaned by the epidemic. This labour of love helps ease her own pain. “If I had to stay home I’d think too much about my son. Many babies have lost their mothers and need our love. Caring for them is my way of helping the people who looked after me.” © Simon Townsley

“Every child in Mali deserves a life without violence. Every child in Mali deserves access to education.” Our Goodwill Ambassador @muzoonalmellehan is in Mali shining a light on the challenges children are facing and the work @UNICEFMali is doing to support the most vulnerable. “Some of the children I met were affected by violence, others were separated from their families due to migration. All of them were inspirational and wonderful.” #regram #AChildIsAChild #ChildrenUnderAttack

(4/4) This is me with my daughter on World Children’s Day, which celebrates the rights of children to be in school learning, safe from harm and able to fulfill their full potential. Looking into her eyes, I’m hopeful for her generation. There have been great strides in the enrollment of children into schools, reconstruction of classrooms and training of teachers. Over the last 18 years (2001 -2018) school enrollment has increased from 1 million to 9.6 million. Yet Afghanistan still has a long way to go. Conflict, poverty and child marriage have denied 3.7 million children from school - and 60% of them are girls. I believe in a brighter future for all children, and continue my work for them. #WorldHumanitarianDay #WomenHumanitarians

(3/4) During a visit to a girls school in Nangarhar, I asked a classroom of eager students what they wanted to be when they grew up. I felt emotional when they told me, “You”! I told them, “Why not. You have better opportunities than I had as a refugee. You live in your own country, have a nice school with good facilities and your education is free. Set your targets high and don’t give up. Hard times will make you stronger than before.” When I joined @unicefafghanistan's field office in 2015, I was the only national female staff member. This wasn’t a surprise to me, with the knowledge that I was the only girl in my university class to study maths and physics, and one of the few girls in my year to finish my secondary schooling. When systems and institutions are stacked against girls from the very beginning, opportunities for the development of female professional leaders dry up. I’m fortunate to have supportive parents and work within an organisation who have encouraged my development. I’ve lobbied for a greater gender balance within my department - which is now at an acceptable level. In the outside world, my commitment to furthering children’s rights and interpersonal skills gives me room for acceptance and respect. As I look out on a sea of hopeful faces during school visits like this, I’m certain that UNICEF’s support for girls’ education in Afghanistan is paving the way for a new generation of female leaders. © UNICEF/UN0309049/Kokic #WorldHumanitarianDay #WomenHumanitarians

(2/4) This is me giving out bags at a UNICEF-supported school in Nangarhar. The smile bursting from this girl’s face was infectious. She was so excited, and told me the new bag was something she desperately needed but couldn’t afford to buy. Her happiness reminded me that I too used to yearn for a school bag. After grade 5, I had to be home-schooled because there were no schools for refugees near where I lived - and refugees weren’t allowed to join Pakistan’s formal education system. I used to envy the children who passed me by in their smart uniforms, swinging their bags full of books. Now my job helps me make sure all children have a safe space to learn with the well resourced teachers and classrooms. As you can see from this photo, children are the most positive people in the world. Moments like this drive me to achieve more for children, no matter how remote or hard-to-reach. © UNICEF/UN0309032/Kokic #WorldHumanitarianDay #WomenHumanitarians

(1/4) Hello, I’m Anita and I’m a UNICEF Education Specialist in Jalalabad, Afghanistan. Today I’m taking over UNICEF’s Instagram to mark World Humanitarian Day. Over the next few posts, I’ll explain what it’s like to be a female humanitarian worker - and how I got to do the job I love. This is me, under a hut made of mud and sticks, with my family when we were refugees in Pakistan. It’s one of the few photos which survived all the moves we made to escape the war in Afghanistan. My father, who is holding me used to work for Save The Children - and was always a strong supporter of girls’ education. Unlike other fathers, he never differentiated between son and daughter. My mother, who is holding my baby sister, is illiterate - but was determined her daughters wouldn’t be the same. In between collecting wood and water to help my parents, I loved to learn and pass on my knowledge to others. At age 16, I opened a home-based teaching class for girls and women. It brought me great happiness to see young girls learn to write their name for the first time. When you feel that every moment of your life is learning, your life becomes more purposeful. Even from a very young age, I knew my purpose in life was to help children learn, no matter who they are or where they come from. #WorldHumanitarianDay #WomenHumanitarians

Dada, 15, was abducted by Boko Haram and became pregnant with her daughter, Husseina, while in captivity in northeast Nigeria. Even after her escape, the ordeal continued with stigma from within her community. “They call me Boko Haram wife. Those people don’t know God,” says Dada. Her main concern is caring for her 18-month-old daughter. “I don’t care what they say… I love her.” Some 2,500 children were abducted in armed conflicts last year. They’ve faced rape, attack and enslavement. From Nigeria and Somalia to DR Congo, we are calling for their release and helping them reintegrate into society. © UNICEF/UN0118457/Sokhin #NotATarget #ChildrenUnderAttack

Ruth is feeding 7-month-old Christ-Vie inside a nursery for children affected by Ebola in North Kivu, Democratic Republic of Congo. Ruth, 19, survived Ebola, which flooded her body with high levels of protective antibodies, practically eliminating the likelihood of her catching the virus again.
