Global Citizenship

17 Sustainable Development Goals: these are the blueprint to a better future for all. They cover the global challenges we face, including those linked to poverty, inequality, climate, environmental decline, prosperity and peace and justice. The goals are interconnected, and in order to leave no one behind must be achieved by 2030.

Fact: about 29,000 children under the age of 5 (around 21 per minute) die everyday – mainly from preventable causes: diarrhoea, malaria, neonatal infection, pneumonia, preterm delivery or lack of oxygen at birth.

Tauheedul Islam Girls' High School, Blackburn

As part of the annual BBC Children in Need appeal, the Social Enterprise Club at Tauheedul Islam Girls' High School prepared and delivered various activities throughout the week.
Students from Tauheedul's Social Enterprise Club were assigned to a group during their after-school, Friday Eco-Warrior session. Working in their groups, students had a twenty pound budget and two weeks to design and plan a stall to raise money for Children in Need.
At the end of the two weeks, students pitched their ideas to a judging panel in a 'Dragons Den' style scenario, ensuring they had a team name and finance sheet with accurate details of cost, profit and products/services. After the pitches, an additional £20 was awarded to the team that demonstrated they could put the additional funds to best use.
During the Children in Need week, the groups hosted their stalls in the school Social Space during lunchtimes selling a variety of food items and hosting challenges and games students could take part in. The week was a huge success raising £863 for Children in Need. Mariya, a member of the social enterprise club, said, 'Children in Need week was really enjoyable, we worked as a team to raise money for a great cause and learnt a lot of skills that I can use in my future.'
