Last year, pupils were extremely excited to be participating in a global campaign to tackle the problem of world hunger.
One third of children in sub-Saharan Africa are malnourished. The world produces enough food for everyone so why are one billion people going hungry?
How can so many children die because they don’t have the food they need?
The IF Campaign was founded by Unicef who asked Rights Respecting Schools to think of an answer to the following question…There would be enough food for everyone if…?
The children thought of an array of ideas and created wonderful artwork too which was then recorded on an ‘IF Campaign’ plate and sent to influence decision makers at the Hunger Summit that was hosted by the Prime Minister, David Cameron, on the 8th June and also at the G8 Summit, attended by World Leaders, a week later in Ireland.
Both Children and staff were extremely excited and proud to receive a letter of recognition from Adrian Sherwen of Unicef, thanking us for of hard work and dedication to the cause.
To get involved in other campaigns or for further information about Unicef, their work and the Rights Respecting School award please view the Unicef website.
