Save the Children UK
Save the Children is a charitable organization founded in London in 1919. Save the Children was not expected to be a permanent organization, but it was called on to deal with emergency after emergency. Its mission is to fight for children’s rights with immediate and lasting improvement to children’s lives worldwide. The organization persuades governments and others who are responsible for children to do the right thing by them. It seeks out the most marginalized children, wherever they are in the world, so that means they work in a really broad range of countries, from fragile states like Afghanistan, to developed countries like in the United Kingdom.
Save the Children is working to right the fundamental wrongs that affect children. They work closely with colleagues in the International Save the Children Alliance, both in their programs with children and in international campaigns and advocacy work. Its goals are:
- Saving children’s lives – specifically, through funding campaigns, to have a significant amount of children lives beyond their fifth birthday.
- Helping children in emergencies – response will be on a larger scale to help more children, ensuring that education is always part of the support package.
- Institutional donor relations – the fundraising will be increased with higher value and quality of relationships with key institutional donors, so that they can reach more children and more effectively.
