South Carolina

People in South Carolina care about kids here in the United States and around the world. Save the Children has worked in South Carolina since 2003 and currently partners with 15 schools in five counties to deliver programs to more than 5,500 children.

Last year, we worked closely with Save the Children to include funding for Save the Children’s early learning programs in the South Carolina state budget. This funding will allow Save the Children to continue to provide critical educational programs to thousands of children across the state.

From expanding preschool for kids in the U.S. to ensuring mothers and children survive and thrive around the world, South Carolina’s advocates are the voice for children.

There are countless ways you can raise your voice for kids! Our activists post information and actions to their social media pages, staff booths at community events, meet with elected officials and even ask presidential candidates questions about how they would work to help children.

Joining our work will positively impact the lives of kids in South Carolina and beyond.
