Save the Children is the world’s leading independent organisation for children. In everything we do we aim to put the most deprived and marginalised children first. Our vision is a world where every child survives, learn and is protected. Save the Children exists to make sure every child gets the chance to fulfil their potential. Around the world, we're working with children, and their families and communities, to help children stay safe, healthy and to keep learning - no matter where they're growing up.
Save the Children stands side by side with children in Africa across 35 countries, since the first programme, a child welfare centre, in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia in the early 1930s. Together with children, communities, donors, partners, NGOs and governments, we fight for children’s rights to education, safety and healthcare, so they can go on to build a better world and future of hope and possibility to achieve their dreams.
