Save the Children invests in childhood – every day, in times of crisis and for our future. In the United States and around the world, we give children a healthy start, the opportunity to learn and protection from harm. By transforming children's lives now,
we change the course of their future and ours.
In 2014, Save the Children worked in 120 countries, including the United States, and helped more than 166 million children — including more than 55 million children directly. Together with the tremendous support of our donors and partners, we transformed children's lives and the future we share. Thank you!
A Healthy Start
In the United States and around the world, Save the Children is dedicated to ensuring every child has a healthy start. We improve the health and nutrition of newborn babies, children and their mothers by targeting the major causes of death and providing access to high-impact, low-cost care that save lives. We help train and equip frontline health workers to deliver care in some of the world's most challenging places.
The Oppotunity to Learn
In the United States and around the world, Save the Children is dedicated to ensuring every child has the opportunity to learn.
We support quality education and learning for all children, in the classroom and at home. We help children prepare to start and succeed in school. We train teachers in more effective practices. And we offer ways to get kids learning outside of school hours.
We also help school-age kids stay healthy, so they don't fall behind our drop out of school. And we make sure children don't stop learning during a crisis.
In addition, we provide youth with skills to succeed — like learning a trade or building a business.
