Our Issues

Our Goal 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 protecting children in conflict.

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 Children in Conflict

Nearly 1 in 5 children around the world are living in conflict zones, more than at any time in over 20 years.

The killing and abduction of children, as well as the targeting of schools and denial of humanitarian aid, are all on the rise around the world.
