Education helps to inspire fun and shape futures. This 'school in a box' is a portable way to ensure children continue to learn during times of crisis and conflict, or in the hardest to reach areas. 
The box contains books, pencils, erasers and scissors and even a wind-up solar radio, while the aluminium lid of the box doubles as a blackboard. Few gifts are as innovative as this. 
Give the gift of education.

A brighter future for children

Child drawing at school © UNICEF/UNI206505

Chahaya is pictured in Palu, Indonesia, studying at school with books and pencils provided by a School in a Box kit.

After a 7.2 magnitude earthquake hit the island of Sulawesi in 2018, triggering a tsunami, more than half of the population in Palu was displaced, leaving hundreds of thousands of children homeless and out of school.

The disaster affected 1,200 schools, threatening to leave more than 184,000 young boys and girls behind without the education and development support they need to get the best chance at life.

UNICEF has been working hard in partnership with the local governments to provide children in even the most remote locations with the school supplies and psychosocial support they need to bring them back into the classroom. UNICEF was able to reach 76,000 children by providing more than 430 education tents and School in a Box kits, ensuring children like Chahaya could return to school just three months after the disaster.

To children in crisis, these school kits are empowering and essential.
