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.,  encouraging support for girls’ leadership 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. 

Learn how we’re helping more kids succeed. 

 

 

  
Investing in Girls
 

Approximately 132 million girls between the age of 6 and 17 are out of school worldwide.

When girls lead their own lives, speak their minds and determine their futures, everyone benefits.

Learn how we’re building support for girls’ leadership. 

 

 

  
 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.
