SAVE THE CHILDREN STARTS ITS 70TH YEAR IN THE U.S.
CREATING REAL AND LASTING CHANGE IN THE LIVES OF CHILDREN IN NEED
The history of Save the Children begins in England in 1919 with an extraordinary woman named Eglantyne Jebb. After having witnessed the deprivation of children caused by World War I, Jebb established the first relief fund specifically for children. The initial mission of the British Save the Children was to provide aid to young survivors in war-ravaged Vienna.

3The history of Save the Children begins in England in1919 with an extraordinary woman named EglantyneJebb. After having witnessed the deprivation of children caused by World War I, Jebb established thefirst relief fund specifically for children. The initial mission of the British Save the Children was to provideaid to young survivors in war-ravaged Vienna.Eglantyne Jebb,herorganization and her establishmentof the international children’s rights movement all served to inspire and provide a role model for Save theChildren in the United States. The first U.S. programbegan in 1932 during the Great Depression in theform of hot school lunch programs in the heart of Appalachia. Soon thereafter, the concept of sponsor-ship was developed as a way to give caring individualsa chance to personally connect with the children whowere being helped.Since then, Save the Children has expanded itshumanitarian and development assistance to countriesin eastern Europe, the Middle East, Asia, Africa, LatinAmerica and the Caribbean, while continuing in theUnited States. Over the decades, through wars andcountless natural disasters around the world, Save theChildren has been a leading innovator of community-based programs that provide children, women andfamilies living in poverty with improved healthservices, access to education and economicopportunities.Among Save the Children’s many breakthroughstrategies have been village schools in Africa, micro-finance initiatives in the Middle East, community-defined health services in Asia and after-school programming in the United States. Save the Childrenhas also been one of the world’s leaders in respondingto catastrophicemergencies including earthquakes inTurkey, hurricanes in Central America, droughts inEthiopia, civil strife in Kosovo, the crisis inAfghanistan and the global pandemic of HIV/AIDS.2001 marked a major milestone for Save the Childrenwith the launch of BREAKTHROUGHS FOR CHILDREN, a10-year strategy to create transformational change forchildren. Built on seven decades of success and strongdonor support, the strategy consists of developmentand humanitarian assistance that will deliver lastingbenefit to children and families most seriouslyaffected by poverty and disaster.
