Save the Children was established in the United Kingdom in 1919 to improve the lives of children through better education, health care, and economic opportunities, as well as providing emergency aid in natural disasters, war, and other conflicts.

Today, it works around the world in over 120 countries to save children's lives, to fight for their rights and to help children fulfil their potential. Save the Children works to inspire breakthroughs in the way the world treats children and to achieve immediate and lasting change in their lives.

Save the Children endorsed ‘Child Poverty’ as a global theme in October 2014 alongside Education, Child Protection, Health and Nutrition and Child Rights Governance to consolidate, advance and expand its existing work to eradicate child poverty in three key areas: Child Sensitive Social Protection, Child Sensitive Livelihoods and Adolescent Skills for Successful Transitions.
