About us


Save the Children Canada is a member of Save the Children International, a network of 29 member organizations raising funds and operating programs domestically and internationally that focus on the issues of health and nutrition, education, HIV and AIDS, child protection, livelihoods and food security, emergency relief and child rights governance.

The members of Save the Children International work together as a federation by pooling resources, establishing common positions on issues and carrying out joint projects.

Save the Children is the world's leading independent organization for children. We are committed to ensuring children realize the rights to which they are entitled under the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child.



Our Vision and Mission

OUR VISION is a world where every child attains the right to survival, protection, development and participation.

OUR MISSION is to inspire breakthroughs in the way the world treats children, and to achieve immediate and lasting change in their lives.


Our Global Strategic Priorities

Save the Children has a new global strategy – ‘Ambition for Children 2030.’ Our mission is as urgent and relevant as ever: more children are surviving and thriving than ever before, but millions of children are denied their most basic rights and unable to fulfil their potential. We inspire three specific breakthroughs for children by 2030:

SURVIVE: No child dies from preventable causes before their fifth birthday   

LEARN: All children learn from a quality basic education   

BE PROTECTED: Violence against children is no longer tolerated

Our Values


We take personal responsibility for using our resources efficiently, achieving measurable results, and being accountable to supporters, partners and, most of all, children.


We are demanding of ourselves and our colleagues, set high goals and are committed to improving the quality of everything we do for children.


We respect and value each other, thrive on our diversity, and work with partners to leverage our global strength in making a difference for children.


We are open to new ideas, embrace change, and take disciplined risks to develop sustainable solutions for and with children.


We aspire to live to the highest standards of personal honesty and behaviour; we never compromise our reputation and always act in the best interests of children.
