Save the Children is the world’s leading independent organization for children. In Canada and 116 countries around the world, we do whatever it takes to help children survive and thrive. When crisis strikes, we are always among the first to respond and the last to leave, helping children regardless of who they are or where they live. Through our innovative development programs and ensuring children's voices are heard, together we are building a better world for and with children.
For over 100 years we’ve worked to advance children’s rights, and will not stop until every last child survives, learns, and is protected from harm.
Nearly 90% of your donation goes directly to helping children on the ground – that’s our commitment to you. We guarantee Canadians can make a difference in the lives of children in crisis, transforming their lives and the future we share.
OUR VISION is a world in which every child attains the right to survival, protection, development and participation.
OUR MISSION is to inspire breakthroughs in the way the world treats children and to achieve immediate and lasting change in their lives.
