“Our mission is to take on the most difficult circumstances in the hardest-to-reach places. And we know we have to step up even more and do whatever it takes to deliver and inspire progress for children.”
Janti Soeripto, President and CEO of Save the Children
Hear from children themselves about their hopes and dreams – and how you’re inspiring them.
A Healthy Start
Immunizing against COVID-19 and beyond means supporting the vaccination of priority populations in some of the world’s most vulnerable places. We work with governments and local organizations, train health workers and strengthen systems to make vaccinations available.
Accelerating teacher vaccinations in Uganda means that with schools slated to open in Uganda in January 2022 – two years after closing to slow COVID-19 transmission – we are scaling up a pilot project reaching out to teachers to understand vaccination barriers before designing behavior change activities encouraging and supporting immunization.
The Opportunity to Learn
Partnering for progress in rural America means reaching over 372,000 at-risk girls and boys from birth to third grade in just the first half of 2021 to help improve their literacy achievement. We work with local partners, pool resources and engage local stakeholders to accelerate progress with our Collective Impact Approach. We advocate – both within states and nationally – for key issues like access to technology, language support for non-English speakers and common kindergarten readiness assessment.
Tapping technology boosts global learning to combat the greatest education crisis in our lifetimes. Our teams are taking action, using radio, apps and digital platforms to guide children and parents through learning at home. Technology also allows us to provide teachers with training in the classroom or remotely.
Protection from Harm
Delivering for Afghanistan’s children includes standing up for women’s rights, while prioritizing health and nutrition; education; shelter; water, sanitation and hygiene; child protection; and mental health/psychosocial support. In the U.S. we continue to safeguard children and families who fled following renewed violence, offering support services and material supplies. .
In Times of Crisis
Responding when every minute counts means having teams that are ready at a moment’s notice. Whether following Haiti’s strong earthquake or Hurricane Ida in Louisiana, with your support we have made a difference for children whose lives have been turned upside down. In Ethiopia’s conflict-affected Tigray region and beyond, your generosity fuels humanitarian relief, protects children from harm and helps them keep up with learning.
Saving children’s lives in Somalia is what drives Muna, a Save the Children Family Health Worker, to devote her life to helping vulnerable girls and boys access the care they need. She goes door to door in the camp where she has lived for 18 years, assessing children under age 5 as well as pregnant and breastfeeding women. She screens for things like malnutrition, pneumonia and diarrhea, providing medication or referring children for treatment if necessary.
