Facts about our job

  • Save the Children campaigning lead to the introduction of free school meals and milk in the 1940s
  • In 2014 we helped 17.4M children around the world
  • In 2015 we responded to 76 emergencies

From Bangladesh to Birmingham, Glasgow to Gaza, every child is full of potential. Save the Children helped 17.4 million children through our work in 2014 in 120 countries including the UK. We run world-class programs to save children’s lives and challenge world leaders to keep to their promises to give children a brighter future. When disaster strikes, there is no time to lose. Our teams respond quickly and do whatever it takes to save children’s lives.

In 2015 we responded to 76 emergencies in 47 countries – delivering life-saving food, water, healthcare, protection and education to over 5 million people

Education has the power to transform children’s futures. We are helping millions of children go to school and improve their skills for a brighter tomorrow.

Living on the streets or in refugee camps, or shut away in institutions – wherever children are vulnerable, they need protection from abuse, exploitation and neglect.

Save the Children started in Britain in 1919 and started working with children here soon after. Today we continue, through our UK programmes and campaigning, to tackle child poverty here at home, so children, whatever their background, have the chance to fulfil their potential.
