We know that you believe children deserve our best. At Save the Children, we feel the same way. Watch as we count down the top five child rights.
Advocate for Children
Over 100 years ago, Save the Children’s pioneering founder established that children have rights. Today and every day, thanks to our supporters, we champion the rights of the world’s 2.3 billion children.
Our political advocacy arm, Save the Children Action Network (SCAN), was founded in 2014. Together, we’re building bipartisan will and voter support to make sure every child in the U.S. has access to high-quality early learning, that children arriving at the southern border are respected and cared for and that girls around the world are given opportunities to lead.
Through research, partnership and advocacy, our Global Policy and Advocacy team educates and cultivates political leadership to adopt proven practices, policies and programs for the world’s most vulnerable children, families and communities.

POLICY AND ADVOCACY
Like our founder, Eglantyne Jebb, Save the Children is an outspoken champion for every last child. Drawing on a century of expertise, we work to ensure children’s voices are heard, their rights are realized and their issues are given top priority.
We educate and engage policymakers to champion policies and programs that improve children’s lives, especially the most vulnerable, like those suffering in Yemen’s humanitarian crisis.
Our recent public policy and advocacy efforts have focused on educating all refugee children and promoting global gender equality.
GIRLS LEAD ACT
You can support girls everywhere to become leaders in their own lives by signing the Girls LEAD Act petition. Then ask your Senator to support the Girls LEAD Act, so girls all over the world are empowered to be drivers of change in their lives today and in the future. With your Senator's support, girls will be able to grow up healthy, educated, and protected through policies and laws that take account of their needs and priorities!
Join us – by signing your name to tell Capitol Hill that you stand with girls!
STOP THE WAR ON CHILDREN
Millions of children’s lives are being devastated by war and conflict worldwide, denying them the protections they deserve and risking their lives and futures. This is a war on children. Together, with your support Save the Children is calling on the United States and other world leaders to do more to keep children safe, uphold their rights and provide the resources they need to recover and restore their lives.
Join our #STOPTHEWARONCHILDREN campaign to stand up and speak out for the millions of children in danger around the world.
