75 YEARS OF LASTING CHANGE FOR CHILDREN IN NEED
Seventy-five years ago, in January 1932, a group of committed individuals were inspired by the vision of Eglantyne Jebb to establish Save the Children in the United States. Their immediate goal was to help the children and families struggling to survive during the Great Depression in the rugged mountains of Appalachia. Out of their efforts to provide food, clothing and health care for those impoverished families grew our organization, which today reaches out to millions of children in more than 50 countries worldwide.
We honor the tens of thousands of men and women who helped children in need down the path to health, education and productive lives. But even as we acknowledge their work, we know that this anniversary does not mark the achievement of Eglantyne Jebb’s vision of positive, lasting change for all children in need.

Seventy-five years ago, in January 1932, a group of committed individuals were inspired by thevision of Eglantyne Jebb to establish Save the Children in the United States. Their immediate goal was to help the children and families struggling to survive during the Great Depression in therugged mountains of Appalachia. Out of their efforts to provide food, clothing and health care forthose impoverished families grew our organization, which today reaches out to millions of childrenin more than 50 countries worldwide. Wehonor the tens of thousands of men and women who helped children in need down thepath to health, education and productivelives. But even as we acknowledge their work, we know that this anniversary does not mark the achievement of Eglantyne Jebb’s vision of positive, lastingchange for all children in need.Despite the best efforts of Savethe Children and countless other organizations, the world’schildren in the 21st century continue to face threats to their well-being and survival. Some 30,000children die each day from preventable causes – a total of 11 million lives lost each year. And77 million children are missing out on school; for 40 million of them, the barrier to learning is warand conflict in their countries. Even in the United States, 2.6 million rural children live below thepoverty line, many lacking the literacy skills they need to be successful in school and life.This is no time for a pat on the back. Despite the complex issues that make it so difficult forfamilies to break the cycle of poverty, we know that it can be done. Over the years, we have heardfrom adults who, as children, felt the support of Save the Children when they were in need. Many of them now help children in their own communities. We hope you will continue your commitment to the work of Save the Children, because thelives of children everywhere can be transformed when people care.
