Who we are
Save the Children Australia is part of the world’s leading independent children’s organisation. Through our advocacy, programs, and initiatives, we fight for child rights, on these First Nations lands now called Australia, and around the world. Save the Children Australia is a dynamic and diverse portfolio of entities using different business models united by a common purpose: to achieve systemic change by creating smart solutions to the critical problems that children face, so they are empowered to live a full life and reach their potential.
Chair & CEO Report: Creativity, efficiency & innovation
For decades, despite the challenges, each year we have been able to say that the world is becoming a better place for children.
In 2021, due to the combined effects of COVID, conflict and climate change, we have seen key measures of child wellbeing go backwards. This represents a clear call to action for organisations like Save the Children: we must double down on our efforts to find ways to dramatically increase our impact on children’s health, education and protection.
The good news is that new technologies, like edtech and e-health, combined with increasing broadband penetration and low-cost smart phones offer the potential to dramatically increase our reach. It's why, in 2021, we continued to invest in social enterprises, research, advocacy and innovative funding models that revolutionise the way we achieve our health, education and protection goals for children.
Thanks for your ongoing support – we couldn’t do it without you.
