The Save the Children
Save the Children
Fund,[2] commonly known as Save the Children, is an international non-governmental organisation that promotes children's rights, provides relief and helps support children in developing countries.[3] It was established in the United Kingdom in 1919 in order to improve the lives of children through better education, health care, and economic opportunities, as well as providing emergency aid in natural disasters, war, and other conflicts. In addition to the UK organisation, there are 29 other national Save the Children organisations who are members of the Save the Children Alliance, a global network of nonprofit organisations supporting local partners and Save the Children International in more than 120 countries around the world. Further, Save the Children
Save the Children
has been involved in other initiatives through partners such as Bernard Arnault Africa Relief (BAAR International), which has operations in various parts of Kenya such as Elgeyo Marakwet, Kajiado, Homa Bay, Narok, Makueni
Makueni
and Machakos, as well as Southern Sudan. The organisation promotes policy changes in order to gain more rights for young people[4] especially by enforcing the UN Declaration of the Rights of the Child. Alliance members co-ordinate emergency-relief efforts, helping to protect children from the effects of war and violence.[3] Save the Children
Save the Children
has general consultative status with the United Nations

Origins[edit] The Save the Children
Save the Children
Fund was founded in London, England, on 15 April 1919 by Eglantyne Jebb
Eglantyne Jebb
and her sister Dorothy Buxton as an effort to alleviate starvation of children in Germany and Austria-Hungary
Austria-Hungary
during the Allied blockade of Germany of World War
War
I which continued after the Armistice.[5] The Fight the Famine
Famine
Council was initially started earlier in 1919 in order to put political pressure on the British government to end the blockade, the first meeting having been held at the home of Catherine Courtney, at 15 Cheyne Walk. However, on 15 April 1919, the sisters succeeded in separating itself from the politics of the Council and creating a separate " Save the Children
Save the Children
Fund".[5] In May 1919, the Fund was publicly established at a meeting in London's Royal Albert Hall
Royal Albert Hall
in order to "provide relief to children suffering the effects of war" and raise money for emergency aid to children suffering from the wartime shortages of food and supplies.[6][7] In December 1919, Pope Benedict XV
Pope Benedict XV
publicly announced his support for Save the Children, and declared 28 December 'Innocents Day' in order to collect donations[8] The first branch was opened in Fife, Scotland in 1919. A counterpart, Rädda Barnen (which means "Save the Children"), was founded later that year in Sweden. Along with a number of other organisations, they founded the International Save the Children Union in Geneva
Geneva
on 6 January 1920. Jebb built up excellent relationships with other Geneva-based organisations, including the Red Cross
Red Cross
who supported Save's International foundation.[5] Jebb used many ground-breaking fund-raising techniques, making Save the Children the first charity in the United Kingdom to use page-length advertisements in newspapers. Jebb contracted doctors, lawyers and other professionals in order to devise mass advertisement campaigns. In 1920, Save the Children
Save the Children
started individual child sponsorship as a way to engage more donors. By the end of the year, Save the Children
Save the Children
raised the equivalent to about £8,000,000 in today's money.[8] Russian famine[edit] By August 1921, the UK Save the Children
Save the Children
had raised over £1,000,000, and conditions for children in Central Europe were improving due to their efforts. However, the Russian famine of 1921
Russian famine of 1921
made Jebb realise that Save the Children
Save the Children
must be a permanent organisation and that children's rights constantly need to be protected.[9] Their mission was thus changed to "an international effort to preserve child life wherever it is menaced by conditions of economic hardship and distress".[8] From 1921 to 1923, Save the Children
Save the Children
created press campaigns, propaganda movies and feeding centres in Russia and in Turkey in order to feed and educate thousands of refugees. They began to work with several other organisations such as the Russian Famine
Famine
Relief Fund and Nansen which resulted in recognition by the League of Nations. Although Russia was largely closed off to international relief and aid, Save the Children
Save the Children
persuaded Soviet authorities to let them have a ground presence.[5] At home, the Daily Express
Daily Express
criticised the Fund's work, denying the severity of the situation and arguing they should be helping their own people before helping Russia. The charity responded with increased publicity about the famine, showing images of starving children and mass graves. The campaign gained national appeal, eventually allowing the organisation to charter the SS Torcello to Russia with 600 tons' worth of relief supplies. Over 157 million rations were given out, saving nearly 300,000 children. Improved conditions meant Save the Children's Russian feeding program was able to be closed in the summer of 1923, after having won international acclaim.[5][10] Second World War[edit] At the end of World War
War
II, images of malnourished and sick children ran throughout Europe. Jebb and her sister worked to gain public sympathy in order to elicit support aid.[11] Save the Children
Save the Children
staff were among the first into the liberated areas after World War
War
II, working with refugee children and displaced persons in former occupied Europe, including survivors of Nazi concentration camps. At the same time, work in the United Kingdom focused on improving conditions for children growing up in cities devastated by bombing and facing huge disruptions in family life.[8] Continuing crises[edit] The 1950s saw a continuation of this type of crisis-driven work, with additional demands for help following the Korean War
War
and the 1956 Hungarian Revolution, but also the opening of new work in Africa, Asia and the Middle East in response to the decline of the British empire.[8] Like other aid agencies, Save the Children
Save the Children
was active in the major disasters of the era—especially the Vietnam War
War
and the Biafra secession in Nigeria. The latter brought shocking images of child starvation onto the television screens of the West for the first time in a major way. The sort of mass-marketing campaigns first used by Save the Children
Save the Children
in the 1920s were repeated, with great success in fundraising. Disasters in Ethiopia, Sudan, and many other world hotspots led to appeals which brought public donations on a huge scale, and a consequent expansion of the organisation's work. However, the children's rights-based approach to development originated by Jebb continues to be an important factor. It was used in a major campaign in the late 1990s against the use of child soldiers in Africa.[8] During the 2014 Ebola outbreak in Sierra Leone, new cases outnumber the available hospital beds in the country. Save the Children
Save the Children
is working with the UK government's Department for International Development and Ministry of Defence to build and run a 100-bed treatment centre in Sierra Leone, as well as supporting an Interim Care Center in Kailahun
Kailahun
for children who have lost their families to Ebola.[12] Declaration of the Rights of the Child[edit] In 1923, Jebb wrote: "I believe we should claim certain rights for the children and labour for their universal recognition, so that everybody--not merely the small number of people who are in a position to contribute to relief funds, but everybody who in any way comes into contact with children, that is to say the vast majority of mankind--may be in a position to help forward the movement."[13] Jebb created an initial draft for what would become the UN Declaration of the Rights of the Child in 1923. It contained the following five criteria:

The child must be given the means requisite for its normal development, both materially and spiritually. The child that is hungry must be fed, the child that is sick must be nursed, the child that is backward must be helped, the delinquent child must be reclaimed, and the orphan and the waif must be sheltered and succored. The child must be the first to receive relief in times of distress. The child must be put in a position to earn a livelihood, and must be protected against every form of exploitation. The child must be brought up in the consciousness that its talents must be devoted to the service of its fellow men.[5]

These five points were adopted by the League of Nations
League of Nations
in 1924 and was thus known as the Declaration of Geneva. This was the first important assertion of the rights of children as separate from adults, and began the process that would lead to the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, adopted by the United Nations
United Nations
in 1989.[5] Convention on the Rights of the Child[edit] Following the atrocities of World War
War
II, the United Nations
United Nations
adopted the Universal Declaration of Human Rights
Universal Declaration of Human Rights
in 1948. However, many felt the rights of children needed to be addressed in further detail with a separate document. In November 1959, the UN General Assembly
UN General Assembly
altered Jebb's initial criteria in order to produce the Declaration of the Rights of the Child. This consisted of ten non-binding principles for states to follow in order to work in the best interests of the child. However, this 1959 declaration was not legally binding and was only a statement of general principles and intent.[14] In 1989, however, it was adopted by the UN General Assembly. On 2 September 1990 it became international law.[14] The Convention consists of 54 articles that address the basic human rights that all children are entitled to: the right to survival; development to the fullest; protection from harmful influences, abuse and exploitation; and full participation in family, cultural and social life.[14] The four core principles of the convention are non-discrimination; devotion to the best interests of the child; the right to life, survival and development; and respect for the views of the child. Today, the Convention serves as the basis for all of Save the Children's work. It has been ratified in every country around the world, with the exception of the United States.[15] Campaigns[edit] Rewrite the Future[edit] Rewrite the Future is Save the Children's first global campaign involving all 28 members of the Save the Children
Save the Children
Alliance. Beginning in 2006, the campaign focuses on obtaining equal and quality education for children who are unable to attend school due to conflict or war. The campaign is focused in 28 states where armed conflict is particularly relevant including Afghanistan, Angola, Colombia, Ivory Coast, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Haiti, Indonesia, Liberia, Nepal, Sierra Leone, Somalia, Sudan, Sri Lanka, and Uganda.[16] In 2008, Save the Children
Save the Children
surpassed its goal of improving educational standards for eight million children by reaching over 10 million. Every One Campaign[edit] The Every One Campaign was started in October 2009 as a result of the Millennium Development Goals
Millennium Development Goals
created in 2000. The fourth goal aims to reduce the child mortality rate by two-thirds by 2015. Save the Children is working to achieve this goal through their Every One Campaign and their seven step program stating:[17]

Implement credible national plans Focus on newborn babies Prioritize equally Mobilize additional resources Train and deploy more health care workers Tackle malnutrition Increase focus on children during emergencies

Every Beat Matters[edit] The Every Beat Matters campaign, started in August 2012,[18] aims to end preventable child deaths. Every year, more than 7 million children die before their 5th birthday, largely due to preventable and treatable causes like pneumonia, diarrhoea and malaria.[19] As part of the campaign, OneRepublic
OneRepublic
created the new song "Feel Again". Lead singer Ryan Tedder
Ryan Tedder
was inspired to write the song by listening to heartbeats of children in need in remote villages in Malawi and Guatemala.[20] Proceeds from the sale of "Feel Again" on iTunes[21] will benefit Save the Children, which trains frontline health workers to save children's lives around the world. In developing countries, frontline health workers are often the only link to health care for children who live beyond the reach of hospitals and clinics. They can provide a range of proven, lifesaving services including maternal and newborn care, child health, and management of chronic and communicable diseases, such as tuberculosis, AIDS and diabetes. Yet according to the World Health Organization, there is a global shortage of at least one million frontline health workers.[22] If London

Save the Children
released a campaign video about what life would be like for British kids if a civil war erupted in London.[23] The video reached over 20 million views in less than a week.[24] The ad has been described as "powerful"[25] and "unsettling".[26] Samantha Cameron
Samantha Cameron
is an ambassador for the charity Save the Children. Her husband, David Cameron, has resisted calls for the United Kingdom to accept more refugees from Syria. In March 2013, Samantha Cameron said: "As a mother, it is horrifying to hear the harrowing stories from the children I met today, no child should ever experience what they have. With every day that passes, more children and parents are being killed, more innocent childhoods are being smashed to pieces."[27][28] Structure and accountability[edit] Save the Children
Save the Children
is an international umbrella organisation, with 30 national organisations serving over 120 countries.[29] All members of the alliance are bound by the International Save the Children Alliance Bylaws which includes The Child Protection Protocol and Code of Conduct. These set a standard for common values, principles, and beliefs.[30] The Save the Children
Save the Children
website states that the member organisations work towards achieving four key initiatives:

Secure quality education for 8 million children affected by armed conflict. Expand and improve their presence in countries of strategic importance. Create a stronger voice for children where more than one member has programmes by integrating country operations. Become the emergency response agency for children worldwide by improving disaster preparedness and response capacity so that they can best deliver immediate and lasting improvements to children.

Connections with other organisations[edit] Save the Children
Save the Children
helps to fund, and is aided with funds raised by, the British will-making scheme Will Aid, in which participating solicitors waive their usual fee to write a basic will and in exchange invite the client to donate to charity.[31] Save the Children collaborates with other NGOs in Family Tracing and Reunification.[32] Controversies[edit] The Save the Children
Save the Children
Fund film[edit] Main article: The Save the Children
Save the Children
Fund Film In 1969, Save the Children
Save the Children
UK commissioned film director Ken Loach
Ken Loach
and producer Tony Garnett to make The Save the Children
Save the Children
Fund Film.[33] The resulting film was unacceptable to the organisation because they felt it presented their work in an unfavourable light.[34] Eventually a legal agreement was arrived at which involved the material being deposited in the National Film Archive.[34][35] In 2011, roughly 42 years later, it was shown to the public for the first time in decades.[34][36] Expulsion from Pakistan[edit] See also: CIA
CIA
transnational health and economic activities In July 2011, a fake vaccination program by the CIA
CIA
was unmasked.[37] It then emerged that Dr. Shakil Afridi, the person organising the CIA's "vaccinations", had claimed that he was a Save the Children employee. In May 2012, Save the Children's country director for Pakistan, David Wright, revealed that the organisation's work had been badly disrupted ever since Afridi had made his claim, with medicines held up for long periods at airports, staff unable to get visas, and so forth. Wright also charged that the CIA
CIA
had breached international humanitarian law and risked the safety of aid groups worldwide.[38] "It was a setback, no doubt," said Dr. Elias Durry, the World Health Organization's polio coordinator for Pakistan, a few months later.[39] Later that year, in September, it was reported that the Pakistani government had requested Save the Children's foreign staff to leave the country,[40] In January 2013, the Deans of twelve top US schools of public health sent a letter to President Obama protesting against the entanglement of intelligence operations in public health campaigns. The letter describes the negative and lasting impacts of the Central Intelligence Agency's (CIA) use of a fake vaccination campaign in Pakistan during the hunt for Osama bin Laden
Osama bin Laden
in 2011, which exacerbated the already persistent public mistrust of vaccines in the country.[41] The CIA's "vaccination program" sparked a series of deadly attacks in Pakistan against dozens of aid and health workers associated with polio eradication campaigns, with the UN-backed polio-vaccination drive repeatedly halted as a result.[42][43][44] In May 2014, the Obama administration announced that they would no longer use vaccination programs as a cover for CIA
CIA
activities.[44] Pakistani investigators said in a July 2012 report that Dr. Shakil Afridi met 25 times with "foreign secret agents, received instructions and provided sensitive information to them."[45] According to a early draft of a Pakistan Government report, which has not been publicly released, Afridi told investigators that the charity Save the Children helped facilitate his meeting with US intelligence agents although the charity denies the charge. The report alleges that Save the Children's Pakistan director at the time of the incident introduced Afridi to a western woman in Islamabad
Islamabad
and that Afridi and the woman met regularly afterwards.[46][47][48] The claim that the Save the Children
Save the Children
Country Director had introduced Afridi to the woman is not credible, as the Country Director concerned had left Pakistan permanently well before the alleged meeting took place. The allegation does not appear in subsequent drafts of the report, although the document has still not been publicly released. On 11 June 2015, Pakistani authorities ordered all Save the Children workers to leave Pakistan within 15 days, and the organisation's office in Islamabad
Islamabad
was closed and padlocked.[49] Award to Tony Blair
Tony Blair

Save the Children
USA[edit] In 2014, Tony Blair
Tony Blair
was given Save the Children's Global Legacy Award by the leadership of the US arm of the charity at a gala dinner in New York.[50] A furious protest letter condemning the award was signed by over 500 Save the Children
Save the Children
staff, who said it was "morally reprehensible" and jeopardised the organisation's credibility.[51][52] The episode raised questions about the links between those who had given the award and those close to Blair.[53] Executive quits after women's complaints of 'inappropriate behaviour'[edit] In November 2015, Mail Online reported that Chief strategist Brendan Cox resigned in September over allegations of ‘inappropriate behaviour’. Mr Cox, who was the director of policy and advocacy, left after women members of staff made complaints about him.[54] Cox had previously denied any wrongdoing but finally admitted to inappropriate behaviour in 18 February 2018 and quit working for his two other charities.[55][56] Charity boss Justin Forsyth resigns from Unicef[edit] On 22 February 2018 former Save the Children
Save the Children
chief executive Justin Forsyth resigned from UNICEF] to avoid "damage" to the charities. Three complaints of inappropriate behaviour were made to Mr. Forsyth whilst he worked at Save the Children.[57] Jalalabad
