Save the Children is a global non-profit organisation which was founded
in the year 1919. Today, it is India’s leading independent child rights
NGO. As of December 2019, we work in 21 states of India. Started in 2012
in India, and registered as ‘Bal Raksha Bharat’, we have changed the
lives of more than 10.1 million (1.1 crore) children till date. In the
year 2020, we reached 9.6 lakh children.
Save the Children believes that every child deserves the best chance for
a bright future and that’s why we are fiercely committed towards
ensuring that children not only survive, but thrive. We 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, Save the Children is
present in more than 80 countries and works to improve the lives of the
most vulnerable children living there.
Every child deserves the best chance for a bright future. And that’s why
we are fiercely committed to ensuring children not only survive, but
thrive. Bold in our ambition and powerful in our care, we do whatever it
takes to save the world’s children.
In India and around the world, Save the Children is on the ground –
every day and in times of crisis. Our pioneering programmes address
children’s unique needs, giving them a healthy start, the opportunity to
learn and protection from harm. When crisis strikes, we are always
among the first to respond and the last to leave. We are outspoken
champions for children, ensuring their voices are heard and their issues
are given top priority. Drawing on a century of leading expertise, we
take on the toughest challenges facing the hardest-to-reach children –
especially those unfairly excluded from the world’s progress.
We are proud to be the world’s leading expert on children, delivering
lasting results for millions of vulnerable girls and boys. By saving the
world’s children, we transform their lives and the future we share.
About the cause: children
Help poor children fight their way out of poverty. When it is hard to afford necessities like food, shelter, and clothing; education becomes a luxury that the poor give up. Illiteracy then leads to further poverty. Donate for child education in India, support them with fees, school supplies, footwear, transport and opportunities to showcase their talents.
21% of India’s children are severely underweight. Hungry children can not build the country’s future. For India’s poor children, the mid-day meal at school is their only proper meal in a day. Feed our children and their hopes by donating mid-day meals to our starving children in need to help them fight starvation and malnutrition, so they don’t have to live and learn on a hungry stomach.
Close to 145,000 of India’s are HIV+, and about 22,000 new infections occur every year. Having inherited an incurable disease for no fault of their own, the affected children soon become orphans and suffer from severe poverty, and social stigma. Donate to poor children who are fighting a deadly disease and help them get access to nutritious food and medical treatment.
20 Million children in India do not go to school. Millions of children are still denied their right to education because of poverty. Donate for the education of poor children and support them with necessities like tuition fees, school supplies, footwear, transport, etc. Help them build a future that will make them escape poverty passed from generation to generation.
Those in extreme need are usually socially excluded and face a lack of basic necessitates for reasons like living in underserved areas or social stigma of being affected with an incurable illness. Donate to those in extreme need and help them with resources like food, medical care, livelihood resources, sanitation, education, etc. to enable them to lead a normal life.
Donate to underfunded programs that are doing great work to provide the poor with necessities like food, shelter, education, senior care, and healthcare. These nonprofits are struggling to continue to help people as they are not receiving the necessary support. Help them with their efforts with your donations.
