Help change the future

Wherever children are - whatever their circumstances - they‘re just children. And that's exactly what makes them so special.

Like children the world over, they laugh, cry and care. They have the potential to learn and grow, to dream and inspire others.

Through times of uncertainty and division, it’s the strength of children that gives us all hope.

Hope that the world can be a better place. Hope that change is possible.

Do you believe in a better, fairer world?

Help children reach their potential, and together we can build it.

Look closer.
See the true stories.

These five children are the same as millions of children all over the world. They all have the potential to achieve big things. But most importantly, to be whoever they want to be. 

Learn more about how we’re trying to help them do that.

'I think education is important. It makes people bright, and also you’ll get a lot of knowledge'

Harriet thought she'd never go to school again after she fled gunshots in South Sudan. We helped her catch up on her learning in the refugee settlement where she lives.

Peter in Uganda


Meet Peter

'If you get an opportunity to finish your studies, you will be successful'

Ex-child soldier Peter arrived in Uganda with nothing. We gave him what he needed to get back on his feet, and also made sure he had a school uniform, bag and shoes - the things he needed to get back in the classroom, where he belongs.

Meet Hiba and Rama

'A girl shouldn't speak her mind? Says who!'

Hiba and Rama fled bombs in Syria. Now they live in Jordan's Za'atari camp, where they attend Save the Children and Arsenal’s Coaching for Life programme, which helped them develop their courage and inner strength.

Now they're taking on one of the big issues facing children in the camp: child marriage.
