You believe, as we do, that every child deserves a future. Every last child.
The world has made great progress for children. More children are alive and thriving today than ever before.
But here's the problem. Millions of children in the U.S. and around the world still aren't getting what they deserve. We're talking about children in need. Dying, when the world knows how to save them. Vulnerable children in poverty. Denied an education. Forced to flee violence. Orphaned, abused, abandoned. Children with no reason to smile. No hope for the future.
Save the Children has worked in Africa for more than 30 years. From responding to massive earthquakes, tsunamis and cyclones, to providing lifesaving health care and nutrition to children in impoverished nations, we work in the poorest and most vulnerable communities throughout the continent.
