Save the Children exists to help every child reach their full potential. In the UK and around the world, this charity makes sure children stay safe, healthy and keep learning, so they can become who they want to be.

More about Save The Children

“If we have education, then we must give it to our brothers and sisters who are illiterate.” Munni* belongs to one of the world’s most marginalised communities - known as Musahars - in India. Engaged at 13, she thought she would never set foot in a classroom. But Save the Children supported her to go to school. Now this 16-year-old girl teaches 20 local women to read and write, so they can build a better future for their families too.

But Munni’s story was 100 years in the making. For a century, Save the Children has stood up for children’s rights and made sure their voices are heard. The charity's co-founder, Eglantyne Jebb, wrote the first international treaty on the rights of every child. They’ve been speaking out on the big issues that affect children ever since. Some of the UK’s biggest policy breakthroughs for children, like free school meals and nursery schools, have happened because of Save the Children. And the charity campaigns tirelessly to uphold our country’s commitment to spend 0.7% of its budget on international aid.

Save the Children works alongside children in more than 100 countries, including the UK. Together, with members around the world, they have three big goals. The shared ambition is that by 2030, no child dies from preventable causes before their fifth birthday, all children learn from a quality basic education, and violence against children is no longer tolerated.

The charity tackles big problems - like pneumonia, hunger, and protecting children in conflict - but they know that every child is different, and every one of them has something special to bring to the world. So, when little Salma* in Ethiopia got sick with pneumonia, she got the specialist medical care she needed. When Louren* in Kenya was unable to walk, he was given physiotherapy to help him take his first steps. And when Ali* in the West Bank was struggling to cope with the conflict around him, he had one-to-one counselling.

Save the Children finds new ways to solve problems facing children, too. Here in the UK, they’re using digital apps to help parents support their children’s early language skills. In Rwanda, they’ve kick-started a reading revolution through book clubs, workshops for parents and teachers, and hundreds of new storybooks. And working with GSK, they’ve developed an antiseptic gel that could save nearly half a million babies’ lives over the next five years.

“Every child has the right to feel safe, to go to school and not to fear anything,” says 13-year-old Nabila*. She fled bombs in Syria. Now she’s made it her mission to stand up for children’s rights in Jordan’s Za’atari refugee camp, where she lives. It’s voices like Nabila’s that shape everything Save the Children do and say. The charity provides a platform for children to express themselves - using their own words to represent them as they really are - and give them the space to be whoever they want to be. As well as championing young activists, Save the Children listens to children who aren’t in the spotlight, so their important stories don’t go unheard.

Together with children, supporters and partners, Save the Children is determined to help every child become who they want to be. Your old car donations can help Save the Children achieve this goal.
