For the second year in a row UNICEF will be the recipient of the 2016 NHSMUN service learning project. All funds collected will support UNICEF Kid Power project and nutrition programs around the world. UNICEF Kid Power gives kids the power to save lives. By getting active with the UNICEF Kid Power Band, kids 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. In the United States, one in four children are physically inactive, according to Designed to Move’s 2014 report on the state of physical activity. The relatively small number of children who get the recommended 60 minutes of daily physical activity is a major public health concern, according to the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation’s Healthy Schools initiative; in the last 15 years, walking and biking to school have decreased by at least 50%, and correspondingly children spend a majority of their time participating in sedentary activities. UNICEF Kid Power increases kids’ physical activity by tapping into their inherent desire to help their peers. Kids are empowered to get active knowing that they’re saving lives.
