Building a better future

Can you imagine what the future would look like if every child like Munni was given the education, the resources and the support they need to make their aspirations come true?
 
Munni was born into one of India’s most marginalised communities. Most girls in her position receive no education and are married by the time they are 13. For Munni it was different. Thanks to the determination of her mother and the support of Save the Children, she is attending school and has learned to read and write.
 
But her story doesn’t end there. Far from it.
 
Because although she is still only 16 years old, Munni is already teaching what she has learned to other girls and women in her community. “ I look around and see many illiterate people,” she told us. “And I think, I will be able to help them and teach them.”
 
By including Save the Children in your will, you can send real, practical support to the children of tomorrow. Children who – like Munni today – will be determined to make life better. Not just for themselves. But for their family, their friends, their community and their world.
