Save the Children believes every child deserves a future. In Hong Kong and 120 countries 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. 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 is a world in which every child attains the right to survival, protection, development and participation.
Our mission is to inspire breakthroughs in the way the world treats children and to achieve immediate and lasting change in their lives.
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
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.
