Children United Launches

Children are 27% of the world’s people but 100% of the future and that is why Skoolbo is very proud to be one of the founding partners of Children United. The Foundation aims to raise the voices of young people across the globe. Officially launched on the 15th of April 2015, the website will be a place where young people can connect with those from other countries to talk about global issues that unite them. It is their chance to be heard and to make a difference.

‘I am very excited to be involved with an organisation that gives young people the opportunity to speak and be heard on issues that affect their future. The first Children United campaign appeals to governments to keep their promise, made at the United Nations in 2000, to ensure all out-of-school children gain their right to an education by the end of 2015. I think you’ll agree it’s the very least we should expect for all young people.’ Shane Hill – Skoolbo Founder

‘Children United is a marvellous way for children and young people to come together to recognise and celebrate their similarities and their differences. My hope is that they will seize this chance to make a happier future and to end prejudice once and for all.’ Colin Brown – Chief Operating Officer Skoolbo

We are delighted to be working alongside First News, Achievement for All, Save the Children and Microsoft in Education in setting up this Foundation. The first step in the Children United journey is our song performed by thousands of children from around the world and Alesha Dixon.

Right now, you can register for Children United through your school and read all about the A World At School campaign. Over the summer, Children United will develop and the full interactive site will be launched in September.
