Sponsored by Target and Disney, UNICEF Kid Power gives students the power to save lives. By getting active with the UNICEF Kid Power Band, students go on missions to learn about new cultures and earn points. 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. The more students move, the more points they earn, the more lives they save. By purchasing a UNICEF Kid Power Band—available at Target—and downloading the free companion UNICEF Kid Power app for iOS and Android, families can join the Kid Power team and work together to help end global malnutrition. Schools can join by applying online to participate in the UNICEF Kid Power School Program, consisting of a teacher-led classroom experience that leverages easy-to-use technology and standards-based UNICEF Kid Power Curriculum.
