6 Our mission Save the Children fights for children’s rights. We deliver immediate and lasting improvement to children’s lives worldwide.
77 Our values We’re outraged by child exploitation, neglect and suffering. We demand justice for the world’s poorest and most vulnerable children.
88 Our values We’re ambitious about achieving dramatic change for children, and we’re determined to deliver it. We never give in to those who think big changes are impossible.
99 Our values We’re creative. We’re always looking for new and better ways to help children, drawing on different perspectives and experiences around the world – especially those of children themselves. We’re not afraid to provoke and surprise people if it gets the job done.
