What is Day for Change?

Day for Change is a chance for your school to learn about what life is like for children around the world. We hope it inspires you and your students to take action.

Thousands of schools have already taken part this year – why not join in?

In 2014, Day for Change is all about education. Going to school gives children the chance of a brighter future. But about 68 million children around the world still don't have access to education. 

UNICEF is working to change this. We want every child to have the opportunity to go to school.

When is Day for Change? 

The official Day for Change date is Friday 7 February 2014, but you can hold yours anytime that suits you during the academic year. Take a look at our blog to find out what schools around the country have been up to already.

How do I take part in Day for Change?

Taking part is simple! All we ask is that you and your students take a day to think about the importance of education, and learn about children’s school experiences all over the world.

We also ask that your school supports UNICEF by raising money. Your fundraising efforts will help us make a lasting change for even the most disadvantaged children.

What will I receive? 

Once you've registered, you'll receive everything you need to organise the day, including a free resource pack. Online resources are also available to download, including lesson and assembly plans to help with your day. 

You'll also receive ideas for fundraising activities that students and the whole school can take part in.
