  • We’re outraged that over 9 million children a year die before reaching their fifth birthday, mostly from preventable illnesses.
  • A huge amount is known about how to save children’s lives. We provide direct help when and where it matters. Learn more about our biggest-ever campaign and read our report Saving Children’s Lives.
  • By combining our work with children all over the world with research and policy expertise, we influence the people who make decisions that affect children every day.

About: Too many children are still dying because they haven’t got enough food or because they can’t get treatment for simple illnesses. Millions aren’t getting an education and are being exploited and abused. This is not good enough.  

We’re changing this, partly by working directly with children, and partly by using our experience and influence to persuade governments and others who are responsible for children to do the right thing by them.

We seek out the most marginalised children, wherever they are in the world, so that means we work in a really broad range of countries, from fragile states like Afghanistan, to developed countries like here in the UK. We work closely with our colleagues in the International Save the Children Alliance, both in our programmes with children and in our international campaigns and advocacy work.

We have high ambitions for what’s achievable for children – we aim to inspire dramatic change for children and to involve them in creating that change. We’d like you to get involved too.
