“Marketing is a vital part of any organization’s success in fulfilling its mission and reaching those whom it exists to serve.”
Siri Espy, Marketing Strategies for Nonprofit Organizations
UNICEF is the driving force that helps build a world where the rights of every child are realised. With the global authority to influence decision makers and the variety of partners at grassroots level to turn the most innovative ideas into reality. This makes UNICEF unique among world organisations, and unique among those working with the young.
The non-charitable organisations objective embedded within its mission statement is to work with all its partners towards the attainment of the sustainable human development goals adopted by the world community and the realisation of the vision of peace and social progress enshrined in the Charter of the United Nations. UNICEF was created with the purpose of working with others to overcome the obstacles that poverty, violence, disease and discrimination place in a child’s path, thus advancing the cause of humanity.
Marketing Role of not-for-profit Organisations
Marketing has earned its place in the not-for-profit world. But marketing and development are not the same. Marketing is about exchanging goods and services for money. Development is about relationships — it is not about money.
Michael R. Maude, President Partners in Philanthropy
Increasingly, not-for-profit organisations have taken to emulating the moneymaking practices of corporations. This trend has three primary causes: the decrease in funding from the public sector, the increase in competition for funds among an expanding number of not-for-profit organisations and the rise in funder pressure for not-for-profit organisati...

...cate the UNICEF story has increasingly moved from traditional practices to the use of online channels, through digital media, through social media. Shaping social conversations around children and telling the right stories helps foster social media engagement and increase donations. Of paramount importance is the task of connecting the organisations mission with the donor’s interests and what they care about i.e. what the organisation proposes to accomplish with the money. Using smarter PR practices in publicising what the money donations accomplish relays value for the donor which underpins future success.

I have decided to research the work of one of the nonprofit organizations, UNICEF, through social media, in particular through Facebook. Primarily, my paper is expected to answer the question if the use of Facebook is effective in the operation of UNICEF. First of all I will briefly introduce what type of organization UNICEF is, what is its mission and where does it operate. The next step of my research will explain how UNICEF gets support from social network and what kind of support, specifically vaccination awareness, seeking for donation and participation. The research will also discuss how UNICEF uses social network in tracking anti vaccination sentiment.
Marketing is the process of searching for options for accumulating profits by identifying the demands of the people and satisfying their needs with appropriate products. In today’s globalized business world, marketing can play a vital role in establishing trade blocks all over the globe with competitive and cutting edge market, research, policies, strategies and activities.
Save The Children Australia is one of the largest aid and development agencies dedicated towards helping all children. They work towards protecting children from harm and helping them to get the opportunity to have access to quality education and health services. World Vision is a NGO which main goal is to overcome poverty and to spread their beliefs of Christianity to those which are not as blessed as others. However, they contribute to raising awareness towards child soldiers through their website and anyone is able to donate money to the children. Child Soldier International is an international human rights organization which is directly dedicated to ending the abuse of children as child soldiers. They aim to build resistance to the conscription of children and persuade governments and armed forces to end the recruitment of
UNICEF is an organization created by the United Nations General Assembly in 1946 to “advocate for the protection of children 's rights, to help meet their basic needs and to expand their opportunities to reach their full potential (UNICEF 's Mission Statement
Oxfam International’s vision is a just world without poverty. The organization’s goal is to save lives, develop long-term solutions to poverty, and campaign for social change. Oxfam works on a wide variety of issues such as agriculture, education, climate change, minority rights, and gender justice. The charity foresees a world where “people can influence decisions which affect their lives, enjoy their rights, and assume their responsibilities as full citizens of a world in which all human beings are valued and treated equally” (Oxfam International).
I had the immense pleasure of completing a summer internship with the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) in the amazing city of Kingston, Jamaica. UNICEF is a leading humanitarian and development agency, working globally for the rights of every child, with specific focus on safety and shelter, nutrition, protection from disaster, conflict and changing the life cycle: pre-natal care, clean water and sanitation, health care and education (UNICEF, 2016). UNICEF also lobbies and partners with government, leaders and policy makers to help all children realize their rights (UNICEF, 2016). Most of UNICEF 's work is in the field, in over 190 countries and territories.
(United Nations Children's Fund [UNICF], n.d.)The United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) is a leading advocate for women and children rights. Founded in 1946 and active in 157 countries and territories around the world. The UNICEF has committed it resources to achieve results for children in five major areas:
...tion to make sure the projects are meeting their goals. There needs to be constant monitoring of each new venture undertaken. Detailed evaluations of current projects and research for new strategies in place of older unsuccessful ones are essential, to make plans better cater to the needs of the children. Lastly I think there needs to be increased government and non-profit participation, and involvement of the children, to bring about the best kind of development. From a development communication standpoint, I think the ILO manages to utilize the most optimum model to bring about progress and change the status quo, wehreas this is largely lacking in UNICEF’s approach.
Marketing is very important to the success of a business. Before people can buy a product or service they have to know about it. However, marketing entails more than just letting people know what your company has to offer. Throughout this paper, I will define marketing, offering my personal definition as well as more formal definitions from other sources. Furthermore, I will explain to the reader the importance of marketing to organizational success giving real world examples in support of this explanation. The field of marketing can include many things. I believe, however, the most important thing which it should include is communication with customers as to the value and benefits of using that particular company's products and services. It should help to establish the business's niche in the industry and distinguish it from other such businesses.
UNICEF through its partnerships advocate the promotion of rights and well being of a child. This partnerships have enabled UNICEF to reach children that are mostly vulnerable and excluded in terms of their needs that is their basic needs and most of all education.
