Charity profile

Every child deserves the best chance for a bright future. That’s why we are fiercely committed to ensuring children not only survive, but thrive. Bold in our ambition and powerful in our care, we do whatever it takes to save the world’s children.

In South Africa and around the world, Save the Children is on the ground – every day and in times of crisis. Our pioneering programs address children’s unique needs, giving them a healthy start, the opportunity to learn and protection from harm. When crisis strikes, we are always among the first to respond and the last to leave. We are outspoken champions for children, ensuring their voices are heard and their issues are given top priority. Drawing on a century of leading expertise, we take on the toughest challenges facing the hardest-to-reach children – especially those unfairly excluded from the world’s progress.

We are proud to be the world’s leading expert on children, delivering lasting results for millions of vulnerable girls and boys.

By saving the world’s children, we transform their lives and the future we share.

But we can’t do it on our own. Do something amazing! Become involved. Your donations will change lives forever.
