Under the auspices of the United Nations The Global Compact for Migration estimates, “there are over 258 million migrants around the world living outside their country of birth.” With millions of migrant children and their families fleeing conflict, war, crippling poverty and human rights abuses, Save the Children has dedicated programs to help migrant children in Australia. As part of a global network of child protection organisations, our life-saving aid, emergency response and development programs help migrant children. As a signatory to the 2017 Initiative for Child’s Rights in The Global Compact for Migration, we also help migrant children who are travelling by themselves.
