Save the Children was founded in 1919 by a bold and forward thinking woman who wanted to change the world, and that has been how we have done business ever since.
For more than 100 years, we’ve worked to find new and better ways to give children a healthy start in life, the opportunity to learn, and protection from harm. We’re on the ground in over 100 countries helping the most at-risk and hardest-to-reach children through pioneering health, education and protection programs, partnering with local communities to create lasting, life-changing results. Our work takes place in diverse settings–from the U.S. and U.K., to Somali and Kenya, to Bangladesh and the Philippines.
Innovation has been at the core of Save the Children’s identity since our founding, and we plan to continue innovating to support the potential of children, adolescents–and women– around the world.
We see many additional opportunities to use digital technologies to amplify, extend and measure our impact. Although we’ve applied technology to many of our initiatives over the years, harnessing the power of digital tools and solutions will be a key and ever-growing component of our work going forward.
