Save the Children believes that every child deserves a future. In Poland and around the world, every day and in times of crisis, we do whatever it takes to ensure that children have a healthy start in life, opportunities to learn and protection from harm.
For more than 100 years, Save the Children has worked to ensure that children have healthcare, food and shelter, learning and child protection services. We support children to transform their lives and champion their rights.
Together with communities and partners, we help ensure children’s needs are met and their voices are heard.
Our vision is a world in which every child attains the right to survival, protection, development and participation.
Our ambition for 2030 is to create a world in which all children:
- Survive: No child dies from preventable causes before their fifth birthday.
- Learn: All children learn from a quality basic education.
- Are Protected: Violence against children is no longer tolerated.
Our work is driven by our values of accountability, ambition, collaboration, creativity and integrity. To achieve our ambitious mission, we work closely with local partners including civil societies, governments, NGOs, communities, and businesses.
The story of Save the Children begins in 1919, when our founder Eglantyne Jebb launched the Save the Children Fund to raise much-needed money for children who were dying of starvation and disease after the First World War.
Today, Save the Children is the world's largest independent child rights organisation, reaching tens of millions of children every year in about 120 countries through our work to save and improve children's lives. Securing children's rights is the foundation of our work.
Eglantyne Jebb’s vision and the impact of Save the Children’s work also played a central role in shaping the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, which was adopted in 1989 and became the most universally accepted human rights treaty in history.
