Our stories

Our stories

Our stories paint a picture of the amazing work Save the Children does around the world and explore some of the biggest issues facing children today.

Building a better world for and with children

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.

We improve the health of children and families so children no longer die of preventable illnesses and live past their fifth birthday.


We create greater access to quality education and ensure that girls and boys are able to learn in safe and positive environments.


We ensure children are safe at all times and prevent their exposure to abuse, neglect, exploitation and violence.


When disaster strikes, we ensure that children are given care and emotional support to survive, recover and continue to learn and live a normal life.
