Our Issues

 

Our Goal is to Give Every Child a Strong Start in Life

This is why Save the Children Action Network focuses on three critical issues:
expanding early childhood education in the U.S.,  helping vulnerable children worldwide and keeping children safe at the U.S.-Mexico border.

 

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.

Protecting Vulnerable Children

  
   

Coronavirus knows no borders.

With the pandemic now spreading into some of the world’s poorest countries, there could be devastating impacts on girls and children affected by conflict.

We must act now to help protect these vulnerable children.

  
 Keeping Children Safe at the Border

 

Children’s rights continue to be violated at the U.S. – Mexico border.

Vulnerable children are being held in custody longer than the legal limit, separated from their families, denied basic care and more.

Learn how we’re advocating for the protection of these children.
