Ninety years ago a British Social reformer , Eglantyne Jebb, started a movement which evolved into a global phenomenon for the betterment of the most distressed children across the globe. Eglantyne Jebb, our founder, was driven by the belief that all children - whoever they are, wherever they are - have the right to a healthy, happy andfulfilling life. She was of the view that change is within reach provided we have the courage, determination and creativity.
Save the Children has been helping children get a happy childhood since 1919 and it’s our decades of experience in improving children’s lives which has helped us to set our mission and have a vision – all for the betterment of children.
To inspire breakthroughs in the way the world treats children, and to achieve immediate and lasting change in their lives.
A world in which every child attains the right to survival, protection, development and participation.
