Here in the U.S., 16 million children living in poverty enter school not prepared to succeed. Around the world, 16,000 children under the age of five die every day.
We can do better. We must.
Our mission is to give every child a strong start in life. This is why Save the Children Action Network focuses on two critical issues: expanding early childhood education in the U.S. and saving moms and kids worldwide.
Why are these issues crucial?
