Here's some stories to prove it!
The number of children forced into marriage is falling
'A girl shouldn't speak her mind? Says who!'
By 13 years old, Munni was engaged to be married. Luckily, her mother and Save the Children's community workers had other ideas and encouraged her to study. Now 16, she supports other women in her community and runs classes educating them on health and family matters.
Meet Hiba and Rama
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. They're taking on one of the big issues facing children in the camp: child marriage.
What you made possible
Supporting incredible individuals
ALICE and catching babies
Alice's story is quite extraordinary. Still working in the delivery room after a 30 year career, she has had over 800 babies named in her honour. Working through the civil war and Ebola, for many years she did not have a clean and safe clinic, but with your support, we were able to build new facilities for her and expectant mothers.
Godwin and his super bike
Godwin is one of a growing number of men we have trained to take expectant mothers to the delivery room by bike, saving lives by providing simple but effective solutions in rural communities. As well as the women he supports, Godwin's own family is now more secure as a result of his job.
