The World’s First

UNICEF Kid Power is a growing movement of kids and families activating their inner heroes, to end global malnutrition one step at a time. With their UNICEF Kid Power App or Band, kids transform their activity into lifesaving nutrition that UNICEF delivers to severely malnourished children around the world. It’s no wonder that the UNICEF Kid Power Band was named by TIME Magazine as one of the ‘Best Inventions’ of 2016.

Show the World Your Kid Power

As a consequence of the daily steps and activity of UNICEF Kid Power Team Members, 8.2 million Ready-to-Use Therapeutic Food packets have been sent to kids in need, saving the lives of 52,000 lives! 

UNICEF Kid Power is encouraging kids and families across the United States to join our movement to get active and help save lives. This movement will empower the next generation of global citizens.

Now more than ever, we need clear and meaningful ways to help a neighbor whether that’s a neighbor next door or 1,000 miles away. Using their boundless energy and inner power, kids can run, jump, skip, and play to help kids around the world. By activating their Kid Power, they are helping to save the lives of other kids in need.
