Results for Children

Annual Report

In 2015, as we celebrated great progress for children, Save the Children strengthened its resolve to reach millions who are still denied the health care, education and protection every child deserves. As the global community agreed to new targets for 2030, Save the Children embarked on an ambitious new plan to ensure every last child has the opportunity to live a healthy, productive life.

Thanks to your tremendous support, we made significant progress for children last year. We reached an estimated 185 million children, achieving lasting, large-scale results around the world. Through innovative, evidence-based programs and relentless advocacy, we will demonstrate that our vision for children is within our reach.

The Opportunity to Learn

Save the Children is dedicated to ensuring every child, everywhere, has the opportunity to learn. More children are in school than ever before, and now it is up to all of us to make sure they are developing the critical skills they need to succeed. We use evidence-based programs to drive learning outcomes,so children learn in and outside of school.

Thanks to you, Save the Children supported quality education for children in need around the world in 2015, directly reaching 12.2 million children.

A Healthy Start

Save the Children is dedicated to ensuring every child, everywhere, has a healthy start. We have been at the forefront of global efforts to cut child mortality rates by more than half. In 2015, nearly 6 million children under age 5 died from preventable or treatable causes, and the most vulnerable children still miss out on the health care they need to survive and thrive.

Thanks to you, Save the Children supported the delivery of high-impact health care to 22.6 million children and directly reached another 11.1 million through our nutrition programs.
