The State of the World's Children 2006

Excluded and Invisible

image of The State of the World's Children 2006
This year’s report highlights the needs of the millions of children who have not been the beneficiaries of past gains, the ones who are excluded or ‘invisible’. As the world presses ahead with the strategies, initiatives and financing needed to realize the vision of the Millennium Declaration, it must not allow these children to be forgotten.

Our commitments to children

Millions of children make their way through life impoverished, abandoned, uneducated, malnourished, discriminated against, neglected and vulnerable. For them, life is a daily struggle to survive. Whether they live in urban centres or rural outposts, they risk missing out on their childhood – excluded from essential services such as hospitals and schools, lacking the protection of family and community, often at risk of exploitation and abuse. For these children, childhood as a time to grow, learn, play and feel safe is, in effect, meaningless.
