schools For UNICEF

Schools for UNICEF is a school fundraising program all about kids helping kids, and schools helping schools around the globe.

Every child has the right to quality, inclusive and safe education. Schools play an important part in children’s overall well-being, such as providing access to health and nutrition programs, safe water and hygiene practices, safeguarding against violence, and quality learning.

In 2022, UNICEF’s education programs provided 37.9 million out-of-school children with access to education. Among these were 251,565 children with disabilities and 18.6 million children in humanitarian settings. 

UNICEF’s role in schools include:

  • Protecting and promoting physical and mental health, nutrition, well-being and development;
  • Promoting good hygiene practices and providing access to safe water and sanitation facilities;
  • Protecting children from violence, abuse, exploitation and neglect;
  • Providing access to learning opportunities and improved skills development.

Good health, nutrition, protection and education extend beyond rights; they are also an investment in a country’s future.

Join Schools for UNICEF and help provide quality, inclusive and safe education so children around the globe can learn, build friendships, and gain the critical skills they need to navigate life, work and active citizenship.

By fundraising for Schools for UNICEF, students can actively participate in making the world a better place for children, fostering learning, growth and empowerment on a global scale.
