Your engagement for children

As an international child rights organisation, we have been working since 1919 to ensure that every single child survives, learns and is protected. We can only achieve this goal with partners. From small and medium-sized to international foundations, we work together with a wide variety of partners.

Common values

It is important for us that our partners share the same values as we do. That is why we check every company for human rights, children’s rights, sustainability and social commitment.

We are very impressed by Save the Children's professional and transparent work in establishing quality standards for the care, shelter and protection of refugee children.
