Save the Children

Many children still start life at a disadvantage simply because of who they are and where they are born. They get caught up in war zones, face poverty, disease, and hunger, are impacted by climate change, or are denied an education and other basic rights owed to them. Save the Children believes every child deserves a future. The NGO champions the rights and interests of children worldwide to ensure they not only survive but thrive.

 

Save the Children responds to major emergencies, delivers innovative development programs, and ensures children’s voices are heard through its campaigns. In 2021, the organization reached nearly forty-three million children across 118 countries. They responded to over a hundred humanitarian emergencies and were involved in more than 250 significant policy and legislative changes. In its work, Save the Children adopts a broader scope than just children. If the best way to protect their rights to survival, protection, and education is to, e.g., train teachers, instruct nurses, and educate local communities, the organization wholeheartedly does so.

Save the Children is a global membership organization consisting of Save the Children International and thirty national institutions. The local organizations focus on aiding children in their region, while Save the Children International supports and strengthens the organization’s global efforts. Next year, the NGO expects to collect 2.7 billion dollars from its donors: from the US government and the EU to many individual contributors. Thanks to their generosity, Save the Children and its twenty-five thousand dedicated staff members can continue to help children worldwide, giving them a better future.
