Our Work in South Africa

We protect children, give them a healthy start and the chance to learn.
Save the Children fights for the right of children to have a future.

In Save the Children we believe that all children and adolescents deserve to have a decent present and future. In South Africa and around the world, we work every day to give children a good start in life, as well as the opportunity to learn and be protected from violence or any other damage.

We make sure that they meet their specific needs and that their voices are heard. We achieve lasting results for millions of children and adolescents, including those who are more difficult to reach.
 

Global Strategy: Ambition for Children

In 2015, the Save the Children movement agreed a new global strategy - Ambition for Children 2030. We also published a strategic plan for 2016-2018. Through this strategy, we will harness our resources, energy, knowledge and expertise to drive our three global breakthroughs for 2030:

Survive : no child dies from preventable causes before their fifth birthday.
Learn: all children learn from a goodquality basic education.
Be protected: violence against children is no longer tolerated.
