We are one of the world’s leading independent organizations for children’s rights and our international network is active since 1919. Save the Children Switzerland is active since 2006 as an independent member organization of the network. We believe every child deserves a future and we want a world in which all children survive, learn and are protected.

Through our work, we strive towards achieving these three breakthroughs in the way the world treats children:

No child dies from preventable causes before their fifth birthday

All children learn from a quality basic education

Violence against children is no longer tolerated

 Our goals are ambitious and can only be met in partnership with others, as part of a broader movement for change. We collaborate with communities, civil society, governments, businesses and donors to achieve change for children.

Every year, we reach tens of millions of children across 120 countries through our work.
