Programs that put children first
From the furthest corners of Australia, to South-East and South Central Asia, Africa, the Middle East and the Pacific, Save the Children's programs always put children first. We reach children in the toughest places and during the most extreme humanitarian emergencies. Where children are being exploited, neglected or abused, we protect them from harm.
Save the Children Australia manages and implements programs that assist children around the world and in Australia. We work in partnership with local communities, all levels of government, other NGOs, community and advocacy groups, corporate partners and individual donors to create change for children, families and their communities.
Our Australian Programs are dedicated to supporting children in all the states and territories of Australia to reach their full potential. Our vision is for all Australian children to have the capabilities, connections and confidence for success in their future - regardless of background, location or circumstances. Our work focuses on ensuring that children and young people participate and are engaged in learning, that families provide positive, safe and supportive home environments, and that communities are strong, connected and safe for children and young people.
We work with girls, boys and their families in 23 countries across South-East and South-Central Asia, Middle East, Africa and the Pacific region to save children’s lives, fight for their rights and help them fulfil their potential. We aim to ensure that no child dies from preventable causes before their fifth birthday, that all children learn from a quality basic education, and are steadfast in the belief that violence against children can no longer be tolerated. To achieve these outcomes, we deliver evidence-based programs that reach children, families and communities. These programs focus on health, education and protecting children. We work to reach girls and boys caught up in humanitarian emergencies, and make children more resilient to climate change and disasters. Our programs give children an education, a healthy start in life, resilience in the face of disasters and the chance to go further than they dreamed possible.
