Save the Children Deutschland e. V.
"We improve children's lives"
Save the children champion the rights of the world’s 2.3 billion children. As the world's leading expert on childhood, they believe that every child deserves a future. This belief is at the heart of everything they do. Save the Children knows you share it, too.
Save the Children was the first global movement for children, boldly declaring that children have rights. Believe it or not, in 1919, when Eglantyne Jebb founded Save the Children, her conviction that children have the right to grow up healthy, educated and safe was a radical idea and not a mainstream idea. Today, Save the Children works in over 100 countries, doing whatever it takes — every day and in times of crisis — to give children a healthy start in life, the opportunity to learn and protection from harm.
Save the children fights for the rights of all children to health and survival, school and education as well as protection from violence and exploitation and protect them from dangers in emergencies and disasters.
