Over 100 years for child rights
Save the Children Finland, established in 1922, is a politically and religiously impartial child organization. The organization’s origins trace back to Ester Ståhlberg’s ‘Homes for Homeless Children’ association. Internationally, the Save the Children movement was initiated by Eglantyne Jebb, who envisioned rights for every child.
The highest decision-making body of Save the Children Finland is the General Assembly, which convenes every three years. Local associations have the right to vote at the General Assembly. Our members hold the ultimate decision-making authority within the organization.
As a donor you can help children everywhere survive, learn and thrive.
