Save the Children Australia was founded in 1919 and works to create better lives for children. The children’s charities we support offer programs both in Australia and overseas - we are one of 28 members of Save the Children International, a child-focused, independent and secular development organisation. When crisis strikes and children are most vulnerable, we rapidly respond to save children’s lives. We always make sure children’s unique needs are met and their voices are heard.
Australia has been ranked among the best places to live in the world for education, economic advantage and life expectancy. But this opportunity doesn't translate for everyone – more than 17% of Australian children still fall below the poverty line. Our children’s charities in Australia aim to do everything we can to give children a healthy start in life, the opportunity to learn and protection from harm. Australian childrens charities like ours believe that every child deserves a bright future.
