Important work around the globe
We are working in Finland and globally so that by 2030
- No child under five dies from preventable causes
- All children get good quality basic education
- There is zero tolerance of violence against children
Our work is guided by the common objectives of Save the Children International. We operate in all the poorest and most fragile states in the world to improve the situation of all the most vulnerable children.
Our programs contributed to reducing child poverty, strengthening child protection, and ensuring education, health services and nutrition for every single child.
