Schools all over the world are joining a global movement in solidarity with families forced to flee their homes.

Your school can support refugees, including separated children who have endured long, dangerous and difficult journeys while fleeing for their lives. Along with getting active, your students will learn about the perilous journeys they’ve taken, the challenges they’ve overcome and the extraordinary work of UNHCR field staff.

Register to take the month long challenge to walk 243 kilometres in support of refugee children like Eva. Nine-year-old Eva trekked 243 kilometres, barefoot and through hostile landscape, to reach safety in Ethiopia. Students can walk and fundraise individually, as a class or as a school to make every step count for refugees.

When you register, you will receive all the resources you need including pedometers for each student, posters, balloons, lesson plans and informative videos to help support your fundraiser.
