About Us

Save the Children is an international independent non-government, non-profit organization founded in 1919, working in over 120 countries worldwide. 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.

Save the Children has worked in Afghanistan since 1976. We currently implement programs in 16 of 34 Provinces, either directly or through partners, reaching more than 700,000 children.

Save the Children in Afghanistan works closely with society on all levels. We work with children, parents, teachers, village councils, religious leaders, ministries and other national and international NGOs. Our way of working close to people on their own terms has enabled us to deliver lasting change to tens of thousands of children in the country.
