What our philanthropists say

Don't just take our word for it

Here is what some of our philanthropists have to say about working with us.

“Working with Save the Children both inspires and challenges me. I know I am part of a movement made up of truly incredible colleagues and partners around the world, working for and with communities to develop the best solutions to some of the toughest circumstances for children. It’s an organisation that continually listens and learns, to be the best it can be for children.”

“Children are the next leaders and I wanted to be part of an organisation who put our next leaders first. My passion and dedication was inspired by my trip to Borno visiting the stabilisation centre, and that’s when I truly knew children needed to be at the forefront. Come rain or shine, Save the Children will be doing what they can to protect every single child."

"It has been a great privilege to support Save the Children and to work closely with them for more than a decade now, on projects as far apart as Mopeia in Mozambique and more recently Feltham in London. Save the Children brings a powerful combination of macro expertise and influence together with the ability to deliver highly effective programmes. They follow a thoughtful, collaborative and community-based approach which ensures the long term sustainability of their projects, which is very important to me. More than anything, I have been truly humbled by the dedication, passion and impact of Save’s colleagues around the world, and the massive difference they make to individual children’s lives."

"The potential of children is beyond our wildest imagination if we can only create the nurturing environment for them to thrive. I am inspired by the mission of Save the Children to promote health, educate, and protect children. I am honoured and humbled to walk with them on that journey to secure the future of our most important treasure, our children."

"I believe children are brought into this world to be nurtured, loved and protected. It is unfortunate that we see so much abuse of children's basic rights and suffering of children. I support Save the Children as an organisation whose mission is to ensure that every child has a chance in this journey called life. As a mother, this is a calling; it’s what I am meant to do!"

“Building positive futures for children around the globe through the pandemic is essential, and this means understanding local realities and addressing intersecting challenges. We must find ways to create system-wide change at the same time that we look to the safety, wellbeing, and growth of each individual child. The Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNF) has been proud to support, most recently, Save the Children’s work to address the impact of COVID-19 on education for refugee children in Kenya and on livelihoods in Mali.”
