In total, UNICEF Kid Power Team Members have unlocked 6.4 million lifesaving therapeutic food packets to kids in need around the world!
Every 150 therapeutic food packets unlocked through the points earned by UNICEF Kid Power Team members results in a full course of lifesaving treatment for a severely malnourished child. With UNICEF Kid Power, the more kids move, the more points they earn, the more lives they save.
During spring 2016, the UNICEF Kid Power Team expanded to include more than 61,000 students in over 2600 classrooms across 13 Kid Power Cities, These kids earned over 3 million Kid Power Points and unlocked approximately 293,000 therapeutic food packets.
In March 2015, more than 11,300 kids in Boston, Dallas and New York joined the UNICEF Kid Power Team and took enough steps to walk around the world more than 23 times. These kids earned enough Kid Power Points to unlock 188,850 therapeutic food packets, enough to save the lives of 1,259 children.
In October 2014, after several classroom pilots of the UNICEF Kid Power School Program, Kid Power was introduced to schools across the city of Sacramento, and over 800 3rd, 4th and 5th grade students were able to experience the power of getting active and saving lives.
