Save the Children

Save the Children works in more than 120 countries around the world. We are an international non-governmental humanitarian organization consisting of Save the Children International and 30 national members.

We share one name, one strategy, and one ambition to ensure that all children survive, learn, and are protected.
The organization was founded in 1919 in the United Kingdom in response to the tragedy of the First World War to improve the lives of children through better education, health and economic opportunities, as well as emergency relief in the event of natural disasters, war and other conflicts.

Our vision is a world where every child is protected, has the opportunity to develop and be involved in decision-making.

Our mission: To inspire change in the way the world treats children and achieve rapid and sustainable change in their lives.

Save the Children’s global ambitions for 2030: no child dies from preventable causes before their fifth birthday, all children have access to quality basic education, and violence against children is no longer tolerated.
