Every Child is Our Child

The Every Child Is Our Child (ECOC) Program that consists of offering essential resources and health care assistance to orphans and vulnerable children, as well as enabling them to attend primary school in Ghana’s Manya Krobo district. The ECOC program directly contributes to the initiative towards the achievement of the Millennium Development Goals (MDG’s), including achieving universal primary education, promoting gender equality, and combating HIV/AIDS, that were established by world leaders in 2000.

LGBT/SOGI Human Rights

Using its unique position at the UN as a leader within the ecumenical community, the Unitarian Universalist United Nations Office (UU-UNO) works to garner support among the Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) community, especially the faith-based community, to end criminal sanctions based on sexual orientation and gender identity in the world.

Women: Security & Peacebuilding

Our goal is to encourage the strong voices and actions of women as part of the peace-building process. Through this program, the UU-UNO supports and advocates for the global implementation of key international agreements such as Security Council Resolution 1325 and the Convention on the Elimination of all forms of Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW).

Faith and Ethics Network for the International Criminal Court 

The Faith and Ethics Network for the International Criminal Court (FENICC) believes that the principals embodied in the International Criminal Court (ICC)—justice and brotherhood—gives religious organizations a unique obligation to raise awareness at a grassroots level and shape this still young institution of international justice. The UU-UNO remains a steadfast advocate for the ICC and is one of FENICC's most active members.
