18 Septembre 2010, a group of boys playing soccer, in the village of Garin Badjini, some 18 Kms from the town of Maradi, Maradi region, south east of the country. In Niger, children's education is a national challenge, for one child in three does not go to school. For girls, the situation is an even bigger concern: only one in two girls goes to primary school, one in ten to secondary school and one in fifty to high school. With this in mind, UNICEF and the Nigerien Government combined their efforts and made it a top priority to provide a nurturing environment for children in the school and realize their right to education. Garin Badjini is one of the 600 primary schools in Niger that have committed to work towards obtaining the Child and Girl-Friendly School label by 2013. The approach is targeted at the most disadvantaged areas and aims to promote child-centred teaching, health and hygiene education and non-discriminatory, child rights-based practices. It also seeks to enhance the participation of children, parents and community members in school improvement initiatives.

‘United for UNICEF’ is a partnership between Manchester United FC (MU) and UNICEF since 1999. It is the longest running partnership of a football club and global charity, and to date it has raised HK$35 million (£3 million) for UNICEF to help over 3.4 million children.
