Virtual Reality

What's life really like for a vulnerable child, struggling to survive, and what can you do to make a real difference?
See for yourself in our first-ever 360° Virtual Reality video series.

Every child deserves a future. But all over the world — from war-torn refugee camps in the Middle East to impoverished towns in Middle America — children are barely hanging on. Because it’s difficult to imagine their challenges, it can be easy to ignore their suffering.

That’s why Save the Children partnered with RYOT, an award-winning media company, to document the lives of children in need through Virtual Reality video. These immersive 360° videos will transport you into a child’s world, where you’ll see their struggles, hear their hopes and learn how you can help transform their lives and futures.

Our web-based video player can be controlled using a variety of devices.
