This slideshow of UNICEF nutrition photos, which accompanies the Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF units, shows the impact of UNICEF's work on the lives of children who are malnourished.

Use this brief activity sheet with your students (grades 3-5) to introduce the topic of global citizenship to them.
The elementary unit aims to introduce the concept of global citizenship and educate students about universal human rights outlined in the Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC). The unit also fosters students’ skills in developing perspectives, while empowering students to recognize and use their individual strengths to make a positive difference in their local communities.
Children with disabilities are among the most vulnerable and marginalized groups in the world. They are far more likely to be victims of violence, have higher rates of malnutrition and more difficulty accessing safe drinking water. When given a chance to get an education, children with disabilities can overcome barriers, learn to be productive and reach for their dreams.
This document, utilized in the Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF unit for grades 3-5, explores the story of Mord, an infant who suffered from Malnutrion, prior to a UNICEF-lead intervention.
