About Save the Children

WE BELIEVE EVERY CHILD DESERVES A FUTURE.

Around the world, too many children start life at a disadvantage simply because of who they are and where they come from.

Millions of children are dying from preventable causes, face poverty, violence, disease and hunger. They are caught up in war zones and disasters they did nothing to create. And they are denied an education and other basic rights owed to them.

All children deserve better.

We champion the rights and interests of children worldwide, putting the most vulnerable children first.

With 25,000 dedicated staff across 120 countries, we respond to major emergencies, deliver innovative development programmes, and ensure children's voices are heard through our campaigning to build a better future for and with children.

ACCELERATING PROGRESS FOR CHILDREN

Our ambition for 2030 is to create a world in which all children:

  • Survive: No child dies from preventable causes before their fifth birthday
  • Learn: All children learn from a quality basic education
  • Are Protected: Violence against children is no longer tolerated.

Our bold ambition builds on 100 years' experience of bringing communities, civil society, governments, businesses and donors together to achieve lasting change for children.

We believe this is the only way that we can inspire real progress and breakthroughs in the way the world treats children.

OUR STRUCTURE

We are a global membership organisation, made up of Save the Children International and 29 national members.

We share one name, one strategy and one ambition for all children to survive, learn and be protected.
