Our Issues

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 Critical?

Early Childhood Education in the U.S. 

2 out of 5 children in America do not have access to early learning programs like preschool. 

Yet most of a child’s brain is developed by age 5.

Ending Preventable Deaths Abroad

Globally, 15,000 children under age 5 die every day from causes we know how to prevent.

Additionally, 800 women die every day from complications in pregnancy and childbirth.
