UNICEF Kid Power joins 34 other leading health, education and private sector organizations as part of the Let’s Move! Active Schools national collaborative. UNICEF Kid Power and Let’s Move! Active Schools work together to support our active school environment at MMBDA. We want to ensure that all of our children receive at least 60 minutes of physical activity before, during and after the school day. Along with lunchtime recess, P.E. classes, creative movement classes, and extracurricular activities at MMBDA has partnered with UNICEF and Let’s Move! Active Schools to champion our students and enjoy the UNICEF Kid Power program. After the application and student assessment system of the UNICEF Kid Power, MMBDA was selected to participate in a full-year program for school-year 2016-2017 school year calendar. Participating classrooms received their own classroom kit, including a Kid Power Band for every student, a LTE enabled tablet for the class, online curricular media and materials, and setting up and implementation materials.
Along with tracking movement, students go on missions, earn points and unlock therapeutic food packets for severely malnourished children around the world. 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. UNICEF Kid Power gives kids the power to save lives. The more kids move, the more points they earn, the more lives they save.
