Global Advocacy

Education. Health. Safety. These Are What We Fight for Every Last Child to Have – No Matter Where They Live.

Supporters like you are the driving force for change on international development and humanitarian response in Washington, DC and in capitals around the globe, benefitting the world’s most excluded children.

Evidence from Save the Children’s research and programs on issues such as health, education and child protection, shape laws and policies to help all children have a better future. Save the Children’s global policy research and advocacy generates evidence-based insights and proposals to ensure that all children can survive and thrive. Our advocacy teams cultivate political leadership among citizens and policymakers to raise children’s and citizens’ voices – helping to spread and grow proven programs for the world’s most vulnerable children, families and communities.

As the political advocacy arm of Save the Children, the Save the Children Action Network brings those issues directly to federal and state lawmakers. Your support can power Save the Children Action Network’s work to hold politicians accountable. Together with our supporters, we focus on two critical issues: early childhood education and ending preventable deaths.
