Changing A Life Lasts A Lifetime

Every good deed on behalf of a child starts a ripple of change – changing the lives of children, families and entire communities.

100 YEARS OF CHANGE FOR CHILDREN

Thanks to supporters like you, we’ve been doing whatever it takes for children in need for 100 years, reaching over 1 billion children! It all began in 1919, when our founder, Eglantyne Jebb, launched a pioneering campaign to save suffering children across war-torn Europe. A cause that soon became the first global movement for children. Her fearless spirit and bold vision continue to drive our work today. Join us.
