The UNICEF Kid Power classroom kit has everything you need to inspire students to learn about malnutrition, get more active and help their peers around the world.
Go on Missions
Students go on Missions to complete standards-aligned lessons and activities, where they learn about different cultures and UNICEF’s work to help children everywhere survive and thrive.
Earn Kid Power Points
On their Missions, students get active with the Kid Power Band. The more kids move, the more points they earn, the more lives they save.
Unlock RUTF Packets
Kid Power Points unlock funding from partners, parents and fans, and funds are used by UNICEF to deliver lifesaving packets of therapeutic food to severely malnourished children around the world.
Kid Power is 100-million percent awesome sauce.
