Image that inspired appeal

A photograph can be a powerful thing. The TES UNICEF Children Helping Children appeal was inspired by such an image, of Afghan children playing on the rusty shell of a tank that we featured as a "Big Picture" in Friday magazine last November.

While many of the pictures in newspapers have focused on the war in Afghanistan, few have shown what a devastating effect the destruction has had on homes and schools.

From next week you will be able to find downloadable pictures of the state of schools in Afghanistan to hand out at your fundraising events, along with the downloadable leaflet and poster already on site.

The campaign has already raised pound;92,000 but we are hoping for a massive push from teachers and pupils to raise funds during school events in the last half of the summer term.

Please help by getting your class or school involved and use the coupon on this page to send in your donation.
