Save the Children – Canada

The Movement Called Save the Children

“Save the Children” movement was initiated in 1919 as a response to the war-torn Europe during the World War II. The International Save the Children Alliance currently consists of 32 autonomous organizations working in over 100 nations throughout the world.


Save the Children – Canada

Save the Children – Canada (SCC) has been operational since 1920. At present, besides Canada itself, SCC is working in 9 countries: Bolivia, Peru, Burkina Faso, Mali, Kenya, Ethiopia, India, Haiti, and Nicaragua. Efforts are targeted at the most critical needs of children. SCO’s principal objective is to help change the conditions which deprive children and their families of the capacity to realize their potential. The programs range from thematic areas of development, survival, protection and participation.
