Day for Change 2010: Change Lives in Mozambique
Friday 13th November 2009
UNICEF invite schools across the UK to to help improve the health and education of children
In 2010, your school is invited to help UNICEF improve the health and education of children in Mozambique by taking part in Day for Change.
Every day in Mozambique, about 400 children under the age five die, mainly of preventable causes. One in two children lack safe drinking water and around one in three girls do not get the chance to attend primary school. UNICEF is changing children’s lives in Mozambique, but we need your help to do more.
What is Day for Change? For more than 20 years, schools across the UK have held an annual Day for Change, learning about and raising money for children around the world. Day for Change 2010 officially takes place on 5th February, but your school can choose any date in the calendar on which to celebrate.
In exchange for making a change for that day – for instance, wearing fancy dress, a sponsored water walk, or a cake sale – parents, children and teachers make a donation to improve education and health for children in Mozambique. Every school that registers receives a free resource kit packed with fundraising ideas, assembly and lesson plans, real life stories, stickers, posters and much more to make their Day for Change a success. Teachers and schools can register online and download additional resources or print out extra copies by visiting the UNICEF website.
