CHANGING A LIFE LASTS A LIFETIME
Every good deed on behalf of a child starts a ripple of change – changing the lives of children, families and entire communities.
MEET DOCTOR SOPHIA
Sophia* lives in rural California, where stray dogs roam the streets and there’s little access to education. That’s why her Mom enrolled her in our early education program, where she got a firm foundation in reading, math and science. Who knows, Sophia may one day help those stray pups when she achieves her dream of becoming a veterinarian.
For 100 years, Save the Children has been the outspoken champion for children, ensuring their voices are heard and their issues are top priority. Find out how one small act from you creates a ripple of change – that spreads to children, families and communities like Sophia’s.
*Name changed for protection.

Future five-star cook. Two-year old Jasmine from the Philippines loves to “pretend cook” alongside her mother. But she wasn’t always this active.

Now, Jasmine’s mom thinks she could grow up to be a chef, nourishing others.

Determined to make dreams come true. Without Save the Children, 10-year-old Mamta from Nepal was expected to leave school, get married and start having babies by age 14. But Mamta wants to stay in school, get a job and become a teacher. One day, girls and boys will look up to Mamta at the front of a classroom, living her dream – and inspiring theirs.
