The Teacher Kids operation, part of the #school4all campaign, aims to show that children with disabilities have talents and abilities to share and why it’s vital to help them access school and build a future for themselves.

A digital platform

A digital school that’s open to all, the teacherkids.org platform aims to highlight these talents. Children and their parents are asked to share a video in which children teach others what they know how to do..

Neymar Jr. shows how we can all learn from children with disabilities

This operation was launched in conjunction with Brazilian footballer Neymar Jr. By taking on the role of a student learning sign language, origami, dance and relaxation techniques, Neymar Jr. wanted to show the world how we can all learn from children with disabilities.

This makes Neymar Jr. the first Teacher Kids student.
