About the initiative

#WRITE4CHANGE - Words matter

Words - written or spoken - have the power to motivate, persuade, break down or build up. Words offer promise and connection - taking us on adventures, helping us cross thresholds, and inviting us to break down barriers.

Words can make heroes.

With #WRITE4CHANGE, children in South Africa get to use their voices, and through a short poem, share what they believe is a better future for all.

Have you ever wondered how the children in your life dream about a better future for all? We encourage you to have a conversation with them and ask them to write their thoughts down in a poem titled: ‘Imagine a Better World’

#WRITE4CHANGE gives children a voice to play a role in taking our country forward. UNICEF SA will select 12 of the poems submitted through #WRITE4CHANGE and feature them in our 2021 calendar which will be sent to every donor from this campaign.
