UNICEF grants consultative status to international NGOs that already hold consultative status with ECOSOC, based on Article 71 of UN Charter, which wish to formalize their relationship to UNICEF. These NGOs are then invited to belong to the Committee in order to undertake joint activities. The Committee has relations with both UNICEF Executive Board and its Administration. UNICEF Offices of Non-Governmental Affairs in New York NY (USA) and Geneva (Switzerland) assist in a supportive and consultative role, provide nongovernmental organizations with information on UNICEF's programmes and policy and assist in developing joint programmes at international and national levels. Reports of Committee activities are presented at annual session of UNICEF Executive Board. Working Groups of NGO representatives in New York NY and Geneva focus on: Convention on the Rights of the Child; Street Children and Children in Especially Difficult Circumstances (Children in Armed Conflicts, Exploited Children); Girls, including NGO Working Group on Girls and its International Network for Girls (INfG); Education for Girls; Values and Ethics. The Committee organizes workshops, fora, consultations and other meetings to discuss situations and make recommendations for action on behalf of children.
