A girl is not a statistic or a piece of property. She's a girl who deserves a future.
The world's girls face unique challenges. A girl is far more likely to miss out on school, marry too young and grow up too fast. Her childhood lost. Her life and future at risk. That's why we're doing whatever it takes to ensure girls grow up healthy, learning and safe.
Join us. Together, let's give every last girl the future she deserves!

Meet Some Amazing Girls
In the U.S., we work to empower vulnerable girls and their mothers, like Jalyssa, in some of our nation’s most disadvantaged communities.
Around the world, we reach the most vulnerable girls all. Girls like Pheak, who was being bullied because of her disability. Now she dreams of becoming a teacher!
Watch Miracle, a sponsored girl, read the inspiring poem she wrote.
Other Ways to Help
Child sponsorship is a way of giving that connects one child in need with one compassionate person (like you!) Becoming a sponsor means giving a child the chance to grow up healthy, educated and safe.
Camila Cabello has designed a limited-edition "Love Only" t-shirt to benefit Save the Children. The collaboration supporting International Day of the Girl will provide 100% of the net proceeds to Save the Children.
Save the Children's Every Last Child campaign aims to reach the most vulnerable children, those left behind by the world's progress in child health, education and protection - including girls. Too many girls, because of who they are or where they're born, face unique challenges. Girls are too often prevented from learning, forced into child marriage and early pregnancy or even coerced and enslaved by human traffickers - their very lives and futures at risk.
Together, we will reach every last girl, empowering her to grow up healthy, educated and safe. Free to lead her own life, speak her mind and determine her future.
