Children in crises

The world’s crises and conflicts affect millions of children. Save the Children is among the first on the scene even in the most challenging situations, where children’s inequality is the greatest and the conditions are the most difficult.

Protecting children

All children have the right to grow up in safety. At the core of our work is protecting children from all kinds of violence, abuse and neglect.

Child participation

A child has the right to express their views freely in all matters concerning them. A child’s views must be taken into account and children must be heard in decision-making.
