Save the Children believes that every child deserves the best chance for a bright future and that’s why they are fiercely committed towards ensuring that children not only survive, but thrive. They run programmes in the remotest corners of India and urban areas to provide quality education and healthcare, protection from harm and abuse and life-saving aid during emergencies to children. Globally, it is present in more than 80 countries and works to improve the lives of the most vulnerable children living there.
Save the Children is a global non-profit organisation which was founded in the year 1919. Started in 2008 in India, and registered as ‘Bal Raksha Bharat’, they have changed the lives of more than 1 crore children till date. Last year, they reached out to 22.7 lakh children. One of the core areas apart from working on the ground is Advocacy and influencing policy. They believe that unless we continuously work with Government, National and International bodies to raise issues that need resolution or policies that need change, their work will not be complete. Save the Children wants to build a world in which every child attains the right to survival, protection, development and participation.
Save the Children spends funds collected where it is most needed, by spending in programmes across India that help improve the health and education situation of children as well as take them out of child labour, child marriage, child pregnancies, abuse and emergency situations. Save the Children has a strong base of over 1,44,230 individual supporters who donate money; it has 35 corporate and 38 Institutional supporters. But there remains a huge gap between funds required and funds available. More donations mean, a better future for more children and thereby a better future for India.
