Save the Children believes every child deserves a future. In Hong Kong and around the world, we do whatever it takes – every day and in times of crisis – so children can fulfil their rights to a healthy start in life, the opportunity to learn and protection from harm. Established in 2009, Save the Children Hong Kong is part of the Save the Children global movement which is made up of 30 member organisations and operates in almost 120 countries. With over 100 years of expertise, we are the world’s first and leading independent children’s organisation – transforming lives and the future we share.

Our Vision

Our vision is a world in which every child attains the right to survival, protection, development and participation.

Our Mission

Our mission is to inspire breakthroughs in the way the world treats children and to achieve immediate and lasting change in their lives.

Our Values

We will stay true to our values of accountability, ambition, collaboration, creativity and integrity.

Our Ambition for Children

Our ambition for 2030 is to create a world in which all children:

  • Survive: No child dies from preventable causes before their fifth birthday
  • Learn: All children learn from a quality basic education
  • Are Protected: Violence against children is no longer tolerated

Our Strategy

In 2022-24, we will work closer than ever before as a global movement to tackle the triple threat of Covid, conflict and the climate crisis. Our four global strategic goals reflect our fundamental belief in the rights of children and we will work with and for children to ensure they have:

  • a healthy start in life
  • a safe return to school and quality learning
  • a childhood free of violence, and
  • resilience to cope with future shocks

Save the Children Hong Kong partners with our colleagues around the world to move our shared goals forward, serving children most impacted by inequality and discrimination in Hong Kong and around the world.

Our Commitment to Safeguarding

Save the Children is committed to ensure that children and adults are protected from both deliberate and accidental harm and abuse caused by Save the Children staff and other representatives. For more information, visit our Child Safeguarding Commitment page.
