Letter rom the Presidentand the Chairman o the Board
To our Contributors,Colleagues and Friends
Back in 1932, the founders of Save the Childrenin the United States were just setting out, lookingfor ways to improve the lives of desperately poor families of Appalachia during the Great Depression.Today, Save the Children reaches 41 million childrenand 25 million others in 50 countries, including theUnited States, with a budget of $361 million and6,000 staff worldwide.During those 75 years, we have been part of enormous progress for children. Before the adventof antibiotics and immunizations, untold numbersof children died from such diseases as diphtheria, tetanus, measles and pneumonia. Now deathsamong children under age 5 have been contained
signicantly and are down to “only” 9.7 million in
2007. In the 1930s, only the most privileged childrenhad a chance to go to school. Instead, most went towork as soon as they were able, condemned to lives
of illiteracy and hardship. In 2007, “only” 72 million
have no access to primary school education.
Clearly, we haven’t nished the job. And wewon’t be nished until we have brought health,
education and security to every single one of thosemillions of children worldwide.Save the Children cannot overcome all thedeprivation and disasters of the world, but we asked:
“Can’t we do more for children in need?” So we
raised the bar for ourselves: Our strategic objective
for the next ve years is to
the number of 
children who benet from our programs so entire
communities, regions and nations will feel the impactof change.
Save the Children’s programsin health, education, emergency assistance and protectionhelped children in need in 50countries worldwide in 2007.For the sixth year in a row, the independent evaluator,Charity Navigator, has awardedSave the Children its 4-star 
rating for exceptional nancial
management. Ninety percentof all expenditures go toprograms for children.
