Find out what Theirworld messages and films got the most shares, likes and retweets as we campaigned for education and early years care for every child.

From joining with Shakira to send a major petition to get the G20 to back education to launching a brand new campaign for early childhood development with some of the world’s best loved comedians, 2017 has been a busy year for the Theirworld team.

But without the support of our social media followers amplifying our messages and encouraging people to take action, we would not have made the steps forward in our aim to get every child the best start in life. 

Here’s a look at some of the social media posts that have made the most noise this year.
