Save the Children India

Nothing can be more saddening than a child dying due to a cause which could have been prevented. Right to Survival is the most basic and important child right and this is what drives Save the Children to run programmes such as Stop Diarrhoea Initiative. Through this project we’re reaching out to a population of 2 million people, including 2,00,000+ children under 5, to prevent and control killer diarrhoea among the most backward communities in five states of India.

Here's a "story of change" from the slums of Jahangirpuri in North Delhi. Visit the link below to find out how we were able to pull out one year old Sahil from the clutches of diarrhoea through our timely intervention.

Coinciding with ‪#‎WorldRefugeeDay‬, a Save the Children-Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan (SSA) school for refugee children, including those coming from the Rohingya community of Myanmar, was inaugurated in Hyderabad. This initiative was planned following the launch of Save the Children’s Every Last Child global campaign in April 2016, when we approached SSA to consider formal education for 300 children of refugees residing in Balapur settlements in old Hyderabad. This is the first of its kind day-school in Telangana, which will offer a 12-hour service to children daily and also provide them with three meals, along with activities aimed at holistic child development. http://ow.ly/i/ktCKm

The only labour a child should be doing is in school. Sadly, this is not the case with lakhs of children in India whose childhood is compromised every day in fields, factories, shops and eateries. Support Save the Children to map such children, groom and prepare them, and then work for their admission into formal schools. Make a life-changing contribution at: bit.ly/1RWMKDt

South Delhi Municipal Corporation (SDMC) has joined hands with Save the Children to set up task forces for mapping and dealing with everyday potential hazards in schools run by it. These hazards range from earthquakes to exposed electrical wiring, from floods to slippery stairs.

These task forces will be modeled after the ones Save the Children has already set up in 32 SDMC schools in the last one year. Our work on Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) in Delhi revolves around building children’s resilience and taking their disaster preparedness to a new level. As part of this project, we have conducted mock drills, set up Disaster Resource Rooms equipped with the latest Information and Communication Technology (ICT) resources and mapped potential dangers within the school premises and in the vicinity – all with an aim to keep children safe.

Getting quality education is one of the most fundamental rights of a child. But for lakhs of children in India, education comes to an abrupt halt for a number of reasons - pushed into labour, economic hardships, parents not willing to send girls to school and others.

Save the Children's education programmes enable dropouts in the most remote locations and urban slums in metros to get restarted with education. But for this we need your support. Please contribute at: bit.ly/1RWMKDt and be a hero for a child in need!

At Save the Children, we understand that there’s no time to lose whenever a natural/man-made disaster strikes. Children are hit the hardest and they and their families need immediate support to move past the trauma and rebuild their lives. Our approach during humanitarian crises is “First to Reach and Last to Leave”. The infographic below gives an insight into how we work during emergency situations. Support us during “peace time” to enable us to be better prepared for mounting a LIFE-SAVING relief response during disasters. Donate at: bit.ly/1RWMKDt

Rightly termed as India’s “silent emergency”, malnutrition is one of the biggest killers of Indian children under 5. We’re stepping up our fight against malnutrition, by strengthening our projects in various parts of India and helping many more children battle this menace. For this, we rely on your support. Contribute today at bit.ly/1RWMKDt. Do your bit!
