What Every Child Deserves

At the very heart of who we are and all we do for children is this essential truth, expressed so fervently by our founder, Eglantyne Jebb, “Humanity owes the child the best it has to give.”

That’s why we’re passionately committed to giving the world’s children, especially those most vulnerable, what every child deserves – a healthy start in life, the opportunity to learn and protection from harm. Whatever it takes.

Thanks to amazing supporters like you, we’re ever closer each year to achieving our ambitions. We’re forging key partnerships, piloting innovative solutions, advocating for best policies – and together, achieving remarkable results at scale. In 2017 alone, we reached more than 155 million children in 120 countries around the world, including nearly 237,000 right here in the United States. Transforming their lives and the future we share.

We invite you to take this opportunity to review the results for children you helped make possible. We’ll also show you how effectively we stewarded the significant resources required to achieve them. And we ask for your continued support of our shared cause.

Because the world’s children deserve our very best. Every last child.

Thank you,
