1 School in a Box

Education helps to inspire fun and shape futures. This 'school in a box' is a portable way to ensure children continue to learn during times of crisis and conflict, or in the hardest to reach areas. 
The box contains books, pencils, erasers and scissors and even a wind-up solar radio, while the aluminium lid of the box doubles as a blackboard. Few gifts are as innovative as this. 
Give the gift of education.

Along with partners such as the Australian government, UNICEF has been an active supporter of the 'Inclusive Early Childhood Development Programme'. Through this program, UNICEF has distributed 'School in a Box' kits to 12 Early Learning Centres to encourage disadvantaged children to learn and play in a supportive environment.

UNICEF is committed to empowering children in Papua New Guinea by providing them with the learning resources and support they need.
