Approach Innovation

The right approach through innovation ensures that eminent services are available to all children without any discrimination. Any issue that causes a child rights violation is an indication of deep-seated problems within the foundations and fabric of our society. We, at Save the Children, identify these evils and work with children, families, and communities to demand answerability from the government and robust solutions to alleviate the impact of these problems that challenge the survival of underprivileged children.

Save the Children was founded on the belief that every child has the potential to change the world; this is exactly what we aim to do through the Innovation approach by enabling programmes that ensure and sustain children’s overall growth and development.
