The NGO has the aim to recruit skilled teachers and provide them into different schools run by Ngo’s as well as other schools of rural areas. The study also further revealed that School has been contributed by different stationeries, sanitary items, different playing items for the children, etc. The researcher recommended that UNICEF should contribute to quality of democratic governance, transparency, accountability and provide a flat form for ethical practice. Integrity is essential for global market to flourish and UNICEF should ensure international agreements are respect on Education Service Delivery. UNICEF should combine, the elements of an effective ethics management system in line with their own administrative and cultural circumstance on Education Service Delivery.
