Learn about our aid response to the Nepal Earthquake
Save the Children is one of Australia's largest aid and development agencies dedicated to helping children.
We work hard to protect children from harm and help them access quality education and health services.
With more than 90 years working with children, we are at the forefront of saving children's lives when disasters strike and create lasting change for children and their families through our long-term development programs.
We have programs in 31 countries, including Australia, where we work in every state and the Northern Territory.
With the generosity of more than 120,000 Australians, we support millions of the hardest-to-reach and most vulnerable children and young people around the world.
Our work around the globe
As one of 30 member organisations that form part of the Save the Children Association, we share a global vision and strategy for creating better lives for children worldwide. The member organisations created Save the Children International in 2010 to improve the impact of our global programming.
Our international programs - except for those in the Pacific - are implemented through Save the Children International. Together, in 2015 we reached more than 62 million children in 123 countries.
