Save the Children is a leading international organization helping
children in need around the world. First established in the UK in 1919,
separate national organizations have been set up in more than
twenty-eight countries, sharing the aim of improving the lives of
children through education, health care and economic opportunities, as
well as emergency aid in cases of natural disasters, war and conflict.
Today, twenty-eight national Save the Children organizations participate
in the International Save the Children Alliance - a global network of
nonprofit organizations working in over 120 countries around the world.
In addition to promoting greater public awareness of the needs and
rights of children worldwide, Alliance members coordinate emergency
relief efforts, helping to protect children from the effects of
disasters, both natural and man made. We also work with the existing
Food and Nutrition Partnership Forum to influence government and donors
to bring the issue of malnutrition and poverty into the national agenda.
