Meet Teacher Jessica
One book changed her life
Behind those big eyes is an ambitious 10 - year old. Although she lives in a small hut with 6

first book. Now she loves reading and learning to speak English - and she wants to become a
teacher someday. For 100 years, Save the Children has been ensuring children's voices are
heard and their needs are met. See how one small act from you can create lasting change in the
life of a child like Jessica.
Meet Chef Jasmine
Future five-star cook
Two-year old Jasmine* from the Philippines is a busy ball of energy, slowing down only
to give her mom a high-five, before she's back to pretend cooking and playing. But she
wasn't always this way. Jasmine's mom wondered early on why her baby was so silent
and still, and she brought her to Save the Children. We diagnosed Janice's malnutrition,
provided emergency therapeutic food and even held family cooking classes. Now
Jasmine's mom wonders whether she'll grow up to be a chef, nourishing others like she
was once nourished. Saving the lives of malnourished babies like Jasmine is just one of
the ways your support helps.
Meet Miss Mamta

Mamta misses her mom and worries about the future. If she follows the same path as
her older sister, she'll have to leave school behind at age 14, get married and start a
having babies right away. Another girl trapped in the cycle of poverty and gender

so I can have a career as a teacher," she says with longing. Mamta wants to stay in
school, get a job and only get married when she's ready. She wants a better future.
