We invite you to join forces with UNICEF to help more children around the world survive to celebrate their fifth birthdays.

Improving child survival requires innovative thinking and new approaches in a number of different fields. Every year, 6.9 million children under five die from causes that have known cures. While these fatalities are preventable, developing countries lack the needed access to healthcare services, professionals, and education.

UNICEF believes that the dynamic and diverse students at CUNY’s 24 colleges and schools are equipped to offer the type of creative thinking needed to design effective solutions. Challenge participants will have the opportunity to connect to UNICEF’s global network of knowledge and partners, and gain valuable experience in development issues and project design. The three winning teams will travel to a UNICEF program country to implement their proposed solution in the field.

Join us, learn about the problems, build a team, design solutions, and change the world! Are you in?
