One hundred years ago, a British Social reformer, Eglantyne Jebb, started a movement which evolved into a global phenomenon for the betterment of the most  distressed children across the globe. Eglantyne Jebb, our founder, was driven by the belief that all children – whoever they are, wherever they are – have the right to a healthy, happy andfulfilling life. She was of the view that change is within reach provided we have the courage, determination and creativity.

Save the Children has been helping children get a happy childhood since 1919 and it’s our decades of experience in improving children’s lives which has helped us to set our mission and have a vision – all for the betterment of children.
