Accenture

Save the Children has been proudly partnering with Accenture since 2003 through local support for national programs in countries like Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Bangladesh, the UK and more. Accenture and the Accenture Foundations have also recently invested in several of Save the Children's programs to support Skills to Succeed, Accenture's corporate citizenship initiative, which has a goal of equipping 250,000 people around the world by 2015 with the skills to get a job or build a business. Save the Children is proud to be a key implementing partner of this commitment through our three year project in China, providing 10,000 youth with the skills they need to get a job or build a business, as well as our most recent two year grant in the Philippines, Egypt and Indonesia which will provide 7,000 youth with job training, apprenticeships, internships and entrepreneurial market access support.

In addition to their support of Save the Children's field work, Accenture has a long history of generously offering consulting resources through Accenture Development Partnerships, which provides international development sector organizations with access to Accenture's core skills and assets on a not-for-profit basis. In this way, our partnership with Accenture has driven results not only for youth in countries around the world, but also for Save the Children's network of country and headquarter offices globally through consultative support on financial systems, HR processes, and global management protocol. Save the Children is truly proud to call Accenture one of our top corporate supporters. Read more at accenture.com

Towers Watson

Save the Children is honored to partner with global professional services company Towers Watson to create lasting change in the lives of children around the world. Donations from Towers Watson associates have combined with the company's corporate support to provide nearly $2 million for children in need. Towers Watson's generosity has made a difference for children from Haiti to South Asia, as we have responded to the human suffering caused by recent devastating disasters in these regions. The company has also helped us strengthen our education initiatives in conflict-affected countries, including Afghanistan, and extend a compassionate, caring hand to African children orphaned by HIV/AIDS.

Since 2010, Towers Watson has also supported Save the Children's global Campaign for Newborn and Child Survival — an effort that springs from the heart of our mission. Preventable, treatable diseases — including pneumonia, diarrhea and malaria — combine with birth complications to cause almost 90 percent of deaths in children younger than five. With the help of partners like Towers Watson, we're making significant progress in reducing that toll. In 1990, 12 million of the world's children died without reaching their fifth birthday. Save the Children is grateful for Towers Watson's ongoing support, which helps us continue this vital work. Visit the Towers Watson website

In 2011, Save the Children received a $400,000 grant from the Walmart Foundation to provide new economic opportunities to women in San Pedro Masahuat, El Salvador, which suffered extensive damage during Hurricane Ida. Impoverished women, whose community was badly damaged by the hurricane in 2009, will be given new opportunities to improve theirs and their families' well-being through this new partnership between Walmart and Save the Children. The Walmart Foundation's support will help 3,000 women over the next two years. The project will identify women who are recognized as community leaders and provide them with the economic, marketing and technical skills they need to start small businesses. The women will then serve as mentors and will help other women start their own income-generating activities. Save the Children anticipates that 10,800 women and their family members will directly benefit from the project.

Zynga and its game players have contributed more than $3 million to support Save the Children's programs benefiting children and families worldwide.
