  • United We Stand Challenge

    UNICEF at MSU brings a new challenge to you!

    This challenge demonstrates UNICEF’s mantra of unity and support for others. Sometimes we don’t realize how much we need a support system to make something whole. This human pyramid is a metaphor to depict the reliance people will have on others while conducting this challenge. UNICEF at MSU wants to raise awareness about the altruistic work UNICEF USA does around the world.

  • The UNICEF Water Walk is a great activity for all ages that creates an environment of learning around global water-related issues. We have chosen to march on the Michigan State University campus with gallons of water to experience what millions of mothers and children do each day walking miles to gather water for their families. The packaged water used in this march will be donated to food banks based in Flint, Michigan. Come advocate for individuals here in the US and all around the world who have been impacted by the world water crisis.

  • Did you know that 800 children will die today from water and sanitation-related diseases?

    UNICEF at MSU is conducting the UNICEF Water Walk to raise awareness about the impact the global water crisis, the lack of improved sanitation, and the contamination of water has on children and adults. We stand to march and speak for the 663 million people around the world who use unsafe drinking water sources and the 24 million people that lack access to improved sanitation facilities.
