UNICEF School-in-a-Box Program
Ensuring Education Continues After an Emergency or Natural Disaster
UNICEF and UNESCO School-in-a-Box kits ensure the continuation of children's education in the first 72 hours of an emergency. Each kit contains essential classroom supplies for a teacher and up to 40 students. Teachers can also use the inside cover of the box as a chalkboard.

Lions Clubs International has supported the School-in-a-Box program since 1996. Today, Lions continue to support the distribution of UNICEF School-in-a-Box kits to children affected by emergencies and natural disasters such as earthquakes, tsunamis and hurricanes – including Katrina.
