Overview

Save the Children is the leading independent organization creating lasting change in the lives of children in need in the United States and around the world. Recognized for our commitment to accountability, innovation and collaboration, our work takes us into the heart of communities, where we help children and families help themselves. We work with other organizations, governments, non-profits and a variety of local partners while maintaining our own independence without political agenda or religious orientation. When disaster strikes around the world, Save the Children is there to save lives with food, medical care and education and remains to help communities rebuild through long-term recovery programs. As quickly and as effectively as Save the Children responds to tsunamis and civil conflict, it works to resolve the ongoing struggles children face every day — poverty, hunger, illiteracy and disease — and replaces them with hope for the future.     PROGRAM AREAS   Child Protection: For more than a decade, Save the Children has been protecting children from abuse, neglect, exploitation and violence in all regions of the world. Our programs focus on the most vulnerable children while aiming for the safety and well-being of all children. Education and Child Development: Education is vital to lasting positive change in children’s lives. Yet for millions of children and youth in developing countries, education is beyond grasp. Save the Children reaches the world’s most marginalized children – those who urgently need education to survive and thrive in more than 30 countries around the world. Health and Nutrition: Save the Children works to ensure that children, their mothers and other caregivers have access to and use key health and nutrition services, as well as adopt healthy behaviors in both development and emergency situations. We use evidence-based interventions to address the major causes of illness, death and malnutrition, and continue to develop innovative strategies to deliver these services most effectively to as many people as possible, especially in resource-poor and emergency situations. HIV/AIDS: Save the Children is responding to the global HIV/AIDS epidemic in Africa, Asia, Eurasia and the Caribbean by partnering with communities to mobilize the resources necessary to tackle HIV/AIDS as well as supporting children and families in need. These partnerships focus on two primary goals: raising awareness about ways to prevent new infection and adopt healthy practices and providing care and support for children and families affected by the pandemic. Livelihoods: Children are more likely to be safe, educated and healthy when families have secure livelihoods. Save the Children works with vulnerable families in 27 countries to help ensure that they can afford to pay for basic needs and services for their children and provide access to sufficient, nutritious food all year round. We also offer assistance when shocks, such as rising food prices or natural or man-made disasters, threaten to devastate families. U.S. Programs: Nearly one in every five children in the U. S. lives in a poor family, according to the most recent figures from the federal government. Save the Children works in impoverished rural communities across the nation, in some places where conditions resemble parts of the developing world. We provide early childhood development, literacy, physical activity, and nutrition programming as well as emergency relief.
