Save the Children is no ordinary not-for-profit.

We're ambitious, creative and outspoken. We stand up for children's rights. We want all children to be educated, healthy and live a life free from violence. We run programs in the Pacific, Australia and overseas and, if there's a disaster - like an earthquake, drought or conflict - we are there on the ground.
