Save the Children

Save the Children is the world's leading independent organisation for children. We work in around 120 countries. We save children's lives; we fight for their rights; we help them fulfil their potential.

We work to inspire breakthroughs in the way the world treats children and to achieve immediate and lasting change in their lives. Across all of our work, we pursue several core values: accountability, ambition, collaboration, creativity and integrity.

In 2014, we reached over 55 million children directly through our and our partners' work. Follow this link to read our latest International Annual Review. Download the Annual Review here.

Save the Children works in countries of origin where oppression, violence, poverty and conflict are fuelling a wave of migration to Italian shores and is working to address the causes of unsafe migration.
