Becoming a global movement
As we continued to grow, so did other Save the Children offices around the world, and today Save the Children has become a truly global movement for children, working in more than 125 countries. Globally, we share one name, one strategy and one vision of the change we want to achieve in the world. In this way, we can work both as Save the Children Australia, and as part of a global movement with Save the Children International.
With the generous support of more than 116,000 Australians, corporate partners, trusts and foundations, and local, state and federal Australian governments, Save the Children Australia supports some of the hardest-to-reach children and young people around the world.
In 2016, we assisted people through 165 projects in 24 countries, including Australia. We are also a leading member of the Save the Children Association (registered in Geneva) – a group of 30 Save the Children organisations that share a global vision and strategy for improving the lives of children worldwide.
To take advantage of our global scale and ensure we are as efficient and effective as possible, the members of the Save the Children Association work through a single structure, Save the Children International (registered in London), when implementing projects internationally. This means Save the Children’s projects in Australia and the Pacific are implemented directly by us, while our international projects are implemented through Save the Children International and local Save the Children partners.
