Over 300 million tons of plastic are produced globally every year, but not enough is recycled. With the help of @conceptosplasticos, UNICEF is turning a household product into plastic bricks. These are then used to build safe schools for children in Côte D'Ivoire, giving us all something to smile about. Check out the link in our bio to learn more. 📸: @unicefcotedivoire

“I love school, and I love coming to Makani after school, where I play with my friends and learn more about my favorite subject, mathematics,” says 6-year-old Fatema.

UNICEF #Mali works quickly to get children who are living in crisis the chance to learn and play. Helping them get back to being kids again is vital to their healing from the trauma they've experienced. Here, a child kicks a soccer ball from a recreation kit provided by UNICEF at Socoura camp.

Violence drove Oumou and her family from their home. Now living in a displacement settlement outside Mopti, #Mali, she is continuing her education with daily lessons in literacy and math at a UNICEF-supported temporary learning space. The deepening humanitarian crisis in Mali, where ethnic militias are waging a deadly struggle for power, has profoundly disrupted the lives of millions of children like Oumou.

"Believe in yourselves, chase your dreams!" That’s @wwe Champion @thetruekofi’s message to Ghana’s kids.

#ForEveryChild, a chance to learn! In Ethiopia, primary school dropout rates remain high, limiting kids’ potential early on. That’s why UNICEF supports Accelerated School Readiness (ASR), a program that aims to help vulnerable children catch up and in many cases, attend class for the first time. Local mothers also play a key role in supporting the initiative. With their help, ASR gets kids excited for school, ready for school, and keeps them in school. 📸: @unicefethiopia

Six-month-old Rimas is vaccinated in one of the UNICEF-supported health clinics in Azraq Refugee Camp, Jordan. Jordan has been polio-free since 1992. Vaccines are a lifesaver. They protect children and adults from diseases and life-long disabilities. And vaccinated children are healthier, so they learn and play better.#VaccinesWork 📸: @unicef_jordan

#ForEveryChild, a safe place to learn. There's so much to do in 5-year-old Haneen's new classroom, one of 54 new kindergartens built and equipped by UNICEF in Azraq and Za'atari #refugee camps. Eager young students here were born refugees, to parents forced out of #Syria by violence. Their families gave up everything to find safety in Jordan, and their lives are still filled with uncertainty. But here in their kindergarten classroom, the students are free to play and learn, away from the pressures of life in a refugee camp. 📸: @unicef_jordan

Another highlight from our visit to #Brazil with @sofiacarson: “Every child in every corner of the world has the right to a life and a future, and it is our duty as citizens of the world to fight to protect it — with everything that we have,” she writes. “31 children are KILLED EVERY SINGLE DAY in Brazil. And it breaks my heart to say that 90% of this violence is directed towards women and young girls, though the majority of cases are NOT reported because to these girls violence is not only normal, but expected. Everything began to change when @unicefbrasil and @fcompaz began to EDUCATE young women. Violence in Recife has decreased by 35%. Education has literally saved the lives of MILLIONS of young girls. [Here], we danced together and we laughed and we smiled and we were changed for the rest of our lives.” #Regram #🇧🇷 #SofiaCarson

“I embraced, I held and I was forever changed by the young women whose lives have been saved thanks to #UNICEF and their partners," says UNICEF Supporter @sofiacarson, having just joined us in #Brazil this week. She had a chance to see a number of @unicefbrasil-supported education and girls empowerment programs firsthand. It was incredibly moving and inspiring to take it all in! And thank you so much to Sofia for sharing your visit and speaking out for vulnerable children in Brazil and around the world! #🇧🇷 #SofiaCarson 📸: @adrianocff for UNICEF USA

UPDATE from our colleagues at @unicefsudan: "Child rights are at the heart of everything we do. Our teams are carrying out lifesaving support for the young people in #Sudan, who have been severely impacted by the recent violence. Peer-to-peer counseling for adolescents is set to begin in the coming days so they can participate in helping us spread awareness in their communities and beyond. We are working with civil society partners to widen our reach to include survivor-centric support and services through referrals."

Building bridges through art! Last month in Houston, we teamed up with Interfaith Ministries, artist Selven Jarmon and 59 people — more than half of them refugee children — representing 36 countries for a special art workshop. The result: this beaded sculpture, 'The Leisure Tower.' As Jarmon put it, "Leisure is just such an expansive term ... it's anything from idle time, freedom, respite." What a beautiful way to capture the spirit of #WorldRefugeeDay! #AChildIsAChild #RefugeeDay 📸: David A. Brown

Syrian refugee Amjad Al Rashdan, 42, plays with his children Basel, 11, and Idress, 5, at home in Charlottetown on Prince Edward Island, Canada. The Al Rashdans were the first Syrian family to be resettled in P.E.I. "It was really fast and very sad," says Basel, remembering what his father told him as they left their family home during heavy fighting in Syria. "Just take your very important things and put them in a small bag and come with us." At first, Basel was afraid to come to Canada, but with his father's support and encouragement, he now his considers himself Syrian-Canadian and is proud to be Canadian.

"When I touch my violin, I feel like I am talking with a good friend and it makes me happy," says 12-year-old Ahmed, dubbed the "Mozart of Aden" by his teachers. It's a remarkable transformation for the young Yemeni musician, who was so traumatized by the shelling and explosions in #Yemen that he stopped talking for months. It was in music that he found peace: “I still have bad dreams. But when I wake up, I jump on my violin and play to forget these dreams and go to a different world, where there is no war.” Check out the link in our bio to read more about his story from @unicef_yemen. #Yemen #🎻
