How you can Help

  • We want to do more and you can help. By committing a small fraction of your income to protect children in need, you can help save a child and contribute to humanity.
  • While Save the Children appreciates monthly donations more where you choose to donate a small fixed amount monthly for us to be able to plan our programs for longer term, a single donation can also help save a child.
