Be K.I.N.D. to a Student in Malawi

Working to provide school desks to children in Malawi through the groundbreaking project, Kids In Need of Desks. Contribute to the K.I.N.D. program here or by calling 1-800-4-UNICEF.

Every day, 70% of children in Malawi struggle to learn while sitting on the ground. Giving them a desk empowers their educational journey and fuels their dreams for the future.

Join UNICEF USA and MSNBC’s “The Last Word with Lawrence O’Donnell” in an ambitious campaign called K.I.N.D.: Kids in Need of Desks to provide desks to eager young learners. To date, the program has delivered desks to more than 500,000 students, but in order to reach every child, we need ongoing support.

Learn more about K.I.N.D. on MSNBC’s “The Last Word with Lawrence O’Donnell.”

By making a tax-deductible donation to UNICEF USA today, help support the next generation of education in Malawi, paving the way to a brighter future.

Or, support scholarships for young women in Malawi.
