Our work

We go to the toughest places to save children from earthquakes, cyclones, conflict and disease. Where children are being exploited, neglected or abused, we protect them from harm. We won’t stand for it – and neither will our supporters.

In Australia and around the world, we give a powerful voice to children and champion their rights

With nearly 100 years’ experience, Save the Children is the world’s leading independent organisation for children. We are at the forefront of saving children’s lives when disasters strike, and creating lasting change for children and their families through our long-term education, health, child protection and climate change projects.

Children deserve the chance to take on the world. They deserve an education, a healthy start in life and the chance to go further than they ever dreamed possible. Children are the heroes of our story and we’ll back them every time.

When disaster strikes, every minute counts – because the faster we respond, the more lives we save.

We are there for children and their families when earthquakes shatter communities. When cyclones tear through villages. When conflict forces families to flee their homes in search of safety. We do whatever it takes to reach children with life-saving aid – but we can only do it with your support.
