Our programs

Every child deserves a bright future. So we work hard to make sure nothing gets in their way.

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.

In Australia

Since 2022 we’ve been delivering our services in Australia as 54 reasons. As 54 reasons we provide quality services to children and their caregivers, advocating alongside them so that children develop, learn, and are connected, safe and confident. Working in more than 197 communities and locations, remote regional and metropolitan areas, our people are proudly local, and as diverse as the communities we serve in every state and the Northern Territory.

International programs

We work with girls, boys and their families in 20 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.

Our work in Australia

We deliver our services in Australia as 54 reasons – a name inspired by the 54 articles in the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child. Our services support children and young people to learn, grow, dream big, feel safe and supported.
