Christian Aid doesn’t think it is fair that most people around the world do not have the things they need to live a good life. It wants to do something about it and you can help.
Never think you are too young to change the world and make it a fairer place. There are lots of things you can be doing...
Think of ways of telling people in your school and at home what you have learnt. That way you can get together on world-changing projects.
Invite your local politician to your school. Ask them what they will do to help people around the world. This is called campaigning. Some of the problems in the world can only be solved if governments change laws.

Think about how much water you use as a class. Pledge to be water aware and monitor water use in your classroom.
Electrical items need power to run but sometimes this is wasted. Consider how the amount of energy we use affects the environment. Pledge to reduce your class energy use.
Lots of our food is produced in other parts of the world and transporting it generates CO2. Pledge to research the foods you eat in school and find out where they’ve come from.
Recycling is really important! Research how much your school does. Do you know what can be recycled? Pledge to make recycling rules for your class.
One of the things Christian Aid asks its supporters to do is pray. Many people from different religions believe praying can make a difference. It’s a way of thinking about people and their circumstances, and what can be done to help bring about changes.
Money sent to Christian Aid is used on projects like the ones shown in Global Explorers. Can you think of a whacky or suitably sensible idea to raise some money?
