Help Create a World Where All Girls Are Healthy, Educated and Safe

Girls around the world face lifelong inequalities. Kept out of school. Forced to marry. We believe that all children are equal – regardless of disability, ethnicity, geography, poverty or gender. As Save the Children celebrates 100-years of change for children, we continue to do whatever it takes to ensure that all girls grow up healthy, educated and safe. That’s why we need your help to bridge the gaps that girls face every day. Here’s how: donate to support our work, advocate by signing a petition or participate in the Bridge Challenge! 


Support Our Work for Girls on International Day of the Girl:
Three Ways to Help

Donate now in honor of International Day of the Girl – and your gift will be matched 2x! Your donation will support our centennial campaign, The Promise of Childhood.

Sign your name to this petition supporting The Girls LEAD Act and girls’ civic and political leadership. Tell Capitol Hill that you stand with girls!

Walk with us on October 12th in the Bridge Challenge – a 3.5-mile walk across the iconic Brooklyn Bridge. Can’t make it? Join us as a virtual walker.


See How Your Donations Can Change a Girl’s Life

Give a Family Water
$45 Can help provide a ceramic water filter to make sure that a family has access to clean water. In some communities, it’s a girl’s duty to fetch water for her family. The journey can take all day and can be filled with risk, including assault and injury.

Keep Girls in School
$50 Can help us provide access to menstrual hygiene products. In many countries around the world, girls miss about 20% of school days due to menstruation. Help us keep girls in school by ensuring that they have access to quality menstrual hygiene products and education.
Learn more about maternal and reproductive health.

Support Girls’ Nutrition
$250 Can help fight malnutrition. When food is scarce, women and girls eat last and eat less. Help us change this and support girls to eat well, learn better, miss fewer school days and grow into healthy adults.
