For over a century, Save the Children has placed the rights of children at the forefront of our agenda. Our commitment to gender equality and social justice is deeply rooted in the legacy of Eglantyne Jebb: a suffragist, human rights activist, and Save the Children’s founder.

Our vision is that the world we pass on to the next generation is one in which gender inequality, racism, ableism, homophobia, xenophobia, and other forms of oppression don’t limit a child’s life path and choices; a world where gender-based violence is not tolerated; and a world where all children are valued, loved, and have access to equal opportunities in life.
