Save the Children is India’s leading independent NGO and child rights organisation. As of July 2017, it works in 18 states in India. Started in 2008 in India, and registered as ‘Bal Raksha Bharat’, Save the Children has since changed lives of more than 9.6 million children. In 2016, 5.05 lakh children directly benefitted through our projects on Education, Health & Nutrition and Child Protection. In addition to this, more than 2.5 lakh children and adults were either helped during emergencies (such natural disasters or humanitarian crises) or equipped better to deal with such risks.
Every child deserves the best chance for a bright future. And that’s why we are fiercely committed to ensuring children not only survive, but thrive. Bold in our ambition and powerful in our care, we do whatever it takes to save the world’s children.
In India and around the world, Save the Children is on the ground – every day and in times of crisis. Our pioneering programmes address children’s unique needs, giving them a healthy start, the opportunity to learn and protection from harm. When crisis strikes, we are always among the first to respond and the last to leave. We are outspoken champions for children, ensuring their voices are heard and their issues are given top priority. Drawing on a century of leading expertise, we take on the toughest challenges facing the hardest-to-reach children – especially those unfairly excluded from the world’s progress.
We are proud to be the world’s leading expert on children, delivering lasting results for millions of vulnerable girls and boys. By saving the world’s children, we transform their lives and the future we share.
