Ambition 2030

Save the Children has a new global strategy – ‘Ambition for Children 2030’. Our mission is as urgent and relevant as ever: more children are surviving and thriving than ever before, but millions of children are denied their most basic rights and unable to fulfil their potential.

We will inspire three specific breakthroughs for children by 2030:

·         SURVIVE: No child dies from preventable causes before their fifth birthday

·         LEARN: All children learn from a quality basic education

·         BE PROTECTED: Violence against children is no longer tolerated

To ensure that all children survive, learn and are protected, we will focus on reaching the most deprived and marginalized children, who are too often excluded due to poverty, geography, gender, ethnicity or disability. We will do whatever it takes to ensure we leave no child behind. This will be the measure of our success.

We won’t achieve our 2030 ambition with business as usual. We will need to make tough choices and take calculated risks. We will need to sharpen our program focus and learn from our successes and failures in terms of what has the greatest impact for children. We must find new and better ways of mobilising supporters to bring millions more people on board with our cause. We will need to reach a new standard of efficiency and effectiveness with strong, diverse leadership across our organisation.


Only by working together, as one Save the Children and in collaboration with our diverse partners and supporters, can we deliver our promise of immediate and lasting change in children’s lives.
