We sometimes wonder what our pioneering founder, Eglantyne Jebb, would think of our world today and Save the Children’s place in it. One look at the alarming headlines scrolling across our brightly lit screens, and even she might fear the world is falling apart. We’re here to assure you, it’s not. By many important measures, 2016 was the best year ever for those to whom she devoted her remarkable life: our children.
Thanks to supporters like you!

In 2016, Save the Children reached more than 157 million children, including more than 56 million children directly. We worked in 120 countries, including the United States, where we reached 683,000 children.
Together, with the tremendous support of our donors, partners and all champions for children, we are transforming children’s lives and the future we share. Thank you!
