Explore issues of disability and conflict

Free Action Pack

Did you know that 3rd December is both the International Day of People with Disabilities and the anniversary of treaties banning cluster bombs and landmines? Handicap International’s Forgotten 10 Challenge campaign is a unique way for your students to explore issues of disability and conflict at the same time. During the 10 days of action from 1st to 10th December students across the UK will be learning about and raising support for the forgotten victims of conflict including those injured in bombings.

When bombs fall in populated areas 9 out of 10 victims are civilians and around 90 people will be killed and injured today alone.

Whether it’s lessons, tutor group sessions, assemblies or a whole-school event our resources will help ensure your activities have a big impact. Resources for teachers include a campaign kit with factsheets, a quiz and materials for awareness events; our Syria’s Young Survivors poster set, which includes an activity booklet; and PowerPoint presentations.

For more information, a list or resources and an order form please request your Forgotten 10 Challenge Action Pack today.

If you would like to find out more about how your school could get involved, please email john.mcgeachy@hi-uk.org or call me on 0870 774 3737.

I’m looking forward to working with you this term and having a big impact!
