World Student Day

Friday 21 October 2016: you are part of something bigger!

World Student Day is an annual celebration of all that God is doing through IFES amongst students around the world. On World Student Day, students, staff and supporters pray for one another and for specific situations facing students around the world.

The next World Student Day will take place on Friday 21 October 2016. Will you join us to pray for students from every nation?
