What is Day for Change?

In its 25th year, 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 and make a difference.

Thousands of schools took part last year -why not join in the fun for 2015? 

This year is all about protecting children caught in emergencies, such as the recent Philippines typhoon and the Syria conflict. By signing up you and your students can learn about children's lives around the world through reading their stories and following our lesson and assembly plans.

Whenever or wherever disaster strikes, UNICEF responds rapidly to deliver life-saving food, medicine and water so children in danger get the help they need.

Taking part is simple! With the help of our free resources, all you and your students need to do is take a day to think about children around the world who are caught up in emergencies and take action by raising donations. Your fundraising efforts and donations will make a huge difference to the most vulnerable children around the world.
