UNICEF and schools have been working together on Day for Change for over 20 years.
We ask schools to make a change in their day and ask students, staff and parents to make a donation to UNICEF for making that change. This can be anything from a non uniform day to changing what you eat.
"We all had a great fun day and the kids were told to change their appearance in any way they wished. We had some book characters, lots of princesses, animals and some even had their faces painted. Everyone in the school took part, from nursery to Year 7 and even the teachers."
Lorraine Magowan, Acting Principal at Ballinderry Primary School in Northern Ireland.

Focus on food
Each year, Day for Change focuses on a different aspect of UNICEF's work. This year we've chosen food, so we'll be looking at UNICEF's vital nutrition work that helps hungry children around the world get enough food to eat.
UNICEF changes children’s lives by providing them with the nutrious food that they need to grow up healthy and strong so that they can attend school and break the cycle of poverty.
Help us bring change for hungry children. Take part in Day for Change 2013.
