Results for Children

Our 2016 Annual Report

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!
