Every last child has the right to survive, learn and be protected



No child should be excluded from the opportunity to survive and learn, yet millions of children globally are being left behind simply because of who they are and where they live.

Over the next three years, Save the Children will work to ensure that 15 million of the world's excluded children have access to life-saving healthcare and quality education – contributing towards progress on the 2030 global goals that prevents 600,000 child deaths and helps 50 million more children to learn.
