Many children live in poverty and do not get the education that is necessary. It is thought if all the children get the proper education it will help end poverty. So, if this is the problem what is Save the Children doing to help. They focused on educating the youth. They have educated millions of kids in just the last few years alone. While educating the youth they have also been working in other countries building schools and making it safe for kids to learn and get the education that they deserve.

Born children to make sure they get the needed nutrition. Are determined to make better healthcare centers with workers that are trained to handle everything that they need. With the newborn program Save the Children is working on stopping death of children under the age of five that are preventable.

Out of all the indigenous people in the world Canada has about fifty percent of all the indigenous people in the world. Save the Children is mostly focused on them. In Canada out of all the indigenous children 40% pf them are living in poverty. This is not how children should have to survive Save the Children is here to stop that from happening.

It is thought that a quarter to a third of children live in poverty. This happens when lots of kids are continually born into family’s that are already poor and cannot support a child. When children are born into poor families they usually never break out of it and cannot live successful lives. Save the Children know that this can be fixed by helping families stay successful with children. They try to help families live on their own by helping create farms so that they can get the food that is necessary. They also help protect families during a crisis when help is needed. Save the Children also helps families also get better income to support themselves. They also try to help keep villages alive by helping grow farms in the area to supply food.
From helping all, these children Save the Children as set some goals that they would like to complete by 2030. By 2030 Save the children would like to end poverty for children so that they do not have to suffer through things like that. There first step to doing that is by giving them an education so they can learn what they need to be successful. They also want to make sure that no child dies from a preventable cause. Every year millions of children die from preventable causes and they think that should not be happening. These children all deserve to have a full life and not die from something a doctor could treat. they also have another goal set wich is to have all child’s right respected. In lots of countries child’s rights are not respected because everyone is trying to survive, and they think they are more important than the children. This is a big problem because it is happening to lots of children everywhere. Save the Children is trying hard to accomplish all of their goals in this time, but they also want to do more goals than just their own. They are also working on world goals from everywhere in the world because they want to help as much as possible.
In the world there are over 160 million children who work. Even though work can be good a lot of this work is not safe for children. Save the Children believes that they should not have to do work that is dangerous for them because they are the new people on the planet and need to get better jobs that are not so harmful. They also want to educate them, so the children can be successful in a good job. With all the children working harmful jobs they can not stat healthy or learn what they need to be healthy.
In 2012 Save the Children teamed up with MasterCard to start a program called Youth in Action. This program helps kids living in poverty learn skills and to think ahead about their future and what they will do. This program has reached out and helped over 40,000 children from different places.
