North Chicago ELL students applied for a grant with UNICEF for the program called Kid Power. The program empowers kids to get active while helping kids around the world. Children wear pedometers, provided by UNICEF, to gain points. Points are added up to provide Ready to Use Therapeutic Food that is shipped out to starving children in different countries.
The program was featured in a recent Forbes article. Click Here to read the article.
