In June 2020, thousands of schools will come together to play, fundraise and change children’s lives.

Design an obstacle course, get your whole school moving and raise money to help children everywhere grow up healthy, happy and able to play. Just like children should.

Don’t worry about planning! We’ll send you a fundraising pack and teaching materials to help your pupils learn about how they are supporting the rights of children all over the world.

“The kids absolutely loved it”

“The Playground Challenge is such a fantastic opportunity for us to get our pupils outside, have a run around, and remind us all how important it is for children to be able to play.

The kids absolutely loved it and, as a member of staff, I loved seeing our students engaged in something meaningful.

We are so proud they could be involved in raising money for children all over the world.”

“I like to play with toy horses, elephants and tigers.”

Brothers Ayas, 5, and Younus, 9, were forced to leave their home in Myanmar when conflict erupted. Their parents were killed by soldiers and their lives were turned upside down.

They now live in the Balukhali refugee camp. Their favourite place is Unicef’s child friendly space where they play football, play with toys and have lessons. Your fundraising could help provide toys, books and games for children like Ayas and Younus.

Your school can help make sure more children have a childhood full of play, learning and laughter. 

Your Playground Challenge will make sure children like Ayas and Younus have the childhood they are entitled to.

Play, fundraise and change children's lives at your school.
