Whoever they are, wherever they're born, every child deserves an equal opportunity. Harvest Festival is the perfect time of year for children in UK schools to band together and give children just like them, on the other side of the world, the chance to go to school and build better lives for themselves.

We're asking UK schools to support our inspiring projects this Harvest Festival.  By learning about the drive for child equality, and the conditions faced by children in other countries, children in UK schools develop a sense of global citizenship and can be inspired to be advocates for empathy, fairness and emotional intelligence.

If your school is fundraising for us, we will provide a whole school presentation with activities, and additional KS1 and KS2 lesson plans, to support their learning around poverty and global citizenship. Plus, involvement will impact on Ofsted’s SMSC judgment.

Resources

Child.org will provide your school with a whole school presentation and additional KS1 and KS2 lesson plans to help you teach children about poverty and global citizenship. As well as this we will also be giving each child a collection tube or envelope! They’ll do good deeds for family members in return for donations with the tubes and learn about the importance of citizenship and giving or get creative with our envelopes by drawing an African jungle scene (with there being a winner in each class!).

  • Presentations will be available in Smart Notebook as well as Powerpoint

  • Our cross-curricular lesson plans are in line with the new curriculum and complete with all necessary resources

  • Everything will have been verified by teachers, so you can trust that our presentations and lessons are of the highest quality

Fundraising pack

Over the last few years, hundreds of schools have supported our projects, raising over £120,000 to transform the lives of children. This year we want to encourage children in the UK to do something nice, or helpful, in order to fill up their tubes with donations. That could be making Nanny a cup of tea, helping to wash the car, cleaning their room or packing bags at the shop.

We will provide you with everything you need to run an effective and fun fundraising activity that works for your school, including:

  • Child.org collection tubes or envelopes for each child  
  • Letters for parents
  • Educational posters and leaflets
