As leading independent children’s rights organisation, Save the Children has been working specifically for the rights of children since 1919. In Switzerland and around the world, we give children a healthy start in life, the opportunity to learn and protection from harm. When crisis strikes, and children are most vulnerable, we are always among the first to respond and the last to leave. We ensure children’s unique needs are met and their voices are heard. We deliver lasting results for millions of children, including those hardest to reach.

Our vision is a world in which every child survives, learns and is protected. Learn more about what we stand for and about our history.

Humanity owes the child the best it has to give.
