UNANIMA International’s offices are located near the headquarters of the United Nations in New York City, USA.

Founded in 1945 following the Second World War, the United Nations is an international inter-governmental organization. According to the Charter of the United Nations, each Member State has a commitment to ensuring world “peace and security, developing friendly relations among nations and promoting social progress, better living standards and human rights.”

The four central purposes of the United Nations are:

  • To keep peace throughout the world;
  • To develop friendly relations among nations;
  • To help nations work together to improve the lives of poor people to conquer hunger, disease and illiteracy, and to encourage respect for each other’s rights and freedoms;
  • To be a center for harmonising the actions of nations to achieve these goals.

There are currently 193 member states, including every sovereign state in the world but the Vatican City. From its offices around the world, the UN and its specialized agencies decide on substantive and administrative issues in regular meetings held throughout the year. The organization is financed from assessed and voluntary contributions from its member states, and has six official languages: Arabic, Chinese, English, French, Russian, and Spanish.
