Help Us Change the Lives of Children

For as little as R5 a day, you will witness how your support transforms the lives of children in South Africa.

Once your donation is received, you will receive a welcome packet with information about our programmes.

We will tell you how, thanks to your help, the quality of life of an entire community is improved.

When you are a supporter of our work, several lives change: that of the children and yours.

You will witness how your support transforms the lives of children who need it most, through letters, photos, videos and reports about their development and learning.

$300 - Monthly donation



Every child deserves to have a good start in life and the best conditions for a successful future. However, many children in South Africa are not having the same opportunities to develop and reach their full potential.

YOU have the power to change this reality. Not only for the children in South Africa, but for your future too. 

By supporting a quality education, an improvement in health and nutrition, you will also facilitate the promotion and protection of your rights, spaces free of violence and gender equity in your school, your home and your community.

Our promise to you is to share the stories of children whose lives you are changing. We’ll do this through:
  • Regular email updates
  • Reports from our relief workers in the field
  • Results and highlights of the programs you’re funding
  • Opportunities to connect directly with the team inside Save the Children
  • Exclusive invitations to special events
