Join with Save the Children to help millions of children from around the world access education

 

What’s happening?

UNESCO estimates that around the world, 57 million primary-school aged children are not in school. It could be because they live in an area of conflict, there aren’t enough teachers, they can’t afford books or uniforms, or they have to work to support their family.

Education is a path out of poverty for many children and their families. Save the Children works to support access to quality education for all children – girls and boys – no matter where they live.

Save the Children’s efforts

Save the Children is one of Australia’s largest aid and development agencies dedicated to helping children. They work hard to protect children from harm and help them access quality education and health services. With more than 90 years working with children, they are at the forefront of saving children’s lives when disasters strike and create lasting change for children and their families through their long-term development programs.

In emergency situations where the education system is unable to function as normal, Save the Children establishes temporary learning centres and provides safe environments for children to learn and play.

Join with Unicef to give a life-changing Christmas gift; the Christmas Care Package

 

What’s happening?

You can give a gift that will have a real impact by sending a Christmas Care Package through Unicef. Unicef understands that having access to supplies when an emergency unfolds is essential, no matter where you live. The Christmas care package contains 500 water purification tablets, four blankets, one tarpaulin and 30 emergency biscuits that could make all the difference to a family in urgent need.

Unicef’s efforts

Unicef is the United Nations Children’s Fund, a leading global humanitarian and development agency that works to uphold the rights of every child. Established in 1946 in the aftermath of World War II, they now operate in more than 190 countries and territories. Their work aims to help all children — especially the most disadvantaged and marginalised— to lead safe, healthy lives and realise their full potential.

Unicef, together with partner organisations, distribute pre-packaged, life-saving supplies to displaced families on the move. Since the first wave of internal displacement in Iraq in July 2014, Unicef and partners have reached more than two million people – nearly half of whom are children – with life-saving supplies. In May 2016, UNICEF distributed 9,200 kits. The displaced families who benefited from the distribution were those in critical shelter arrangements such as informal camps, unfinished buildings, and school buildings.

Children fleeing the Rohingya crisis urgently need your help. Join with Save the Children to help

 

What’s happening?

The Rohingya Crisis is the fastest-growing humanitarian emergency in the world today. A major escalation of violence in Rakhine State, Myanmar, has forced more than 600,000 Rohingya people to flee to Bangladesh – adding to 200,000 who had fled earlier conflict. More than half the refugees – upwards of 350,000 – are children. The United Nations calls it “a textbook example of ethnic cleansing”.

Save the Children’s efforts

Save the Children is one of Australia’s largest aid and development agencies dedicated to helping children. They work hard to protect children from harm and help them access quality education and health services. With more than 90 years working with children, they are at the forefront of saving children’s lives when disasters strike and create lasting change for children and their families through their long-term development programs.

Save the Children is on the ground providing food, water and shelter, safe spaces for children, and hygiene kits to stop disease spreading among already vulnerable people. They’re also helping to reunite unaccompanied children with their families.

Join with Unicef and take the pledge to listen to children for World Children’s Day

 

What’s happening?

World Children’s Day 2017 was on the 20th of November. It is the chance for children to raise their voices and celebrate their rights. The perfect way to support the children you know is to tell them you’ll always take them seriously and listen to their concerns.

Every child has the right to speak up and be heard, because children are experts in their own lives and because you want every child to speak up with confidence and know their opinions matter.

Unicef’s efforts

Unicef is the United Nations Children’s Fund, a leading global humanitarian and development agency that works to uphold the rights of every child. Established in 1946 in the aftermath of World War II, they now operate in more than 190 countries and territories. Their work aims to help all children — especially the most disadvantaged and marginalised— to lead safe, healthy lives and realise their full potential.

How you can help

Join with Unicef and take the pledge to always listen to children.

“I pledge to listen to children;

  • Because I believe in a world that values every child.
  • Because I recognise young people have important things to say about their homes, schools and communities.
  • Because I support every child’s right to speak and be heard.”

Join with Save the Children to help improve children’s health

 

What’s happening?

Millions of children become sick or die because they don’t have access to basic health services or proper nutrition. Treatable diseases like pneumonia, diarrhoea, measles and malaria, as well as HIV/AIDS and neo-natal conditions that occur during or after childbirth are the biggest causes of child deaths. The health and survival of mothers is critical. A child whose mother dies in childbirth is much more likely to die than a child whose mother survives.

Save the Children’s efforts

Save the Children is one of Australia’s largest aid and development agencies dedicated to helping children. They work hard to protect children from harm and help them access quality education and health services. With more than 90 years working with children, they are at the forefront of saving children’s lives when disasters strike and create lasting change for children and their families through their long-term development programs.

To reduce the transmission of AIDS and HIV to newborns and the infection of young people, Save the Children raise awareness on how to stay safe and support families. In 2013, they provided more than 1850 education sessions, and peer-educator sessions which reached more than 4600 male and female sex workers through their HIV and AIDS program in Papua New Guinea.

Join with Unicef to help children in Yemen

 

What’s happening?

Yemen is the Middle East’s poorest country – a place where children are 12 times more likely to die before their fifth birthdays than in Australia. In March 2015, violence escalated into a brutal war that has plunged most of the country’s children into crisis. This is one of the deadliest wars on earth and has killed more than 1,400 children.

At least six children are killed or injured every day in Yemen’s conflict. They’re collateral damage. They’re even targets of war. They’re recruited to fight at as young as ten years old.

Unicef’s efforts

Unicef is the United Nations Children’s Fund, a leading global humanitarian and development agency that works to uphold the rights of every child. Established in 1946 in the aftermath of World War II, they now operate in more than 190 countries and territories. Their work aims to help all children — especially the most disadvantaged and marginalised— to lead safe, healthy lives and realise their full potential.

How you can help

Unicef teams are doing everything possible to overcome the obstacles in Yemen: setting up new supply hubs, using local sailing vessels and chartered flights and working with local partners to reach children cut off from humanitarian access. They are working to reach 323,000 children with urgent treatment for the deadliest kind of malnutrition – but they rely on emergency gifts from generous donors to make it happen.

Join with Save the Children to help keep children like Tadila out of child marriages

 

What’s happening?

When Tadila was just 14, she told her mother and father that she wouldn’t marry the man they’d chosen for her. She is now 18 years old and has finished high school and wants to be a nurse. Tadila found the strength to pursue her dreams through listening to a revolutionary radio program in northern Ethiopia called Save the Children’s Radio Listening Program.

The Radio Listening Program is a series of radio shows designed to amplify the voices of women and children, raise awareness about early marriage and other harmful traditional practices, and increase the number of women and children accessing healthcare. Listeners of the program learn that marrying and having babies too young increases a girl’s risk of fistula – a painful and debilitating condition caused by childbirth – and leaves them without opportunities or an education. This knowledge, supported through our work with community leaders and schools, gives girls the confidence to talk to their parents about marriage, or find support among their peers and community to change their fate.

Save the Children’s efforts

In four years, the program has established 195 listening groups, with programs specifically designed for children, women, men and people with disabilities. In that time, more than 1,600 child marriages have been cancelled, because knowledge does create power for change.
