#Childhood should be a period of love, care, and protection ; a safe time for growing, learning, playing, and discovering. Unfortunately, for maybe a quarter of the children worldwide, these important elements of a serene and peaceful childhood are not experienced.
For hundreds of thousands of children around the world, and perhaps millions of children, childhood is a period of life that ends really early. TOO early. Children from African and Asian countries are concerned, but also children living in high-income countries. In a lot of countries, rich or poor, childhood is threatened by several factors: health issues, conflicts, violence, malnutrition, but also child marriage, early pregnancy, exclusion from education, and child labor. They also face a terrible threat: discrimination, for being a girl, a refugee, from a ethnic minority, or a child with a disability.
For almost a century, Save the Children has been fighting to save childhood from these threats. You can support their actions by donating to:
