ABOUT SAVE THE CHILDREN INDIA

Hundred years ago one woman, Eglantyne Jebb, started a worldwide movement for the most disadvantaged children of the world. She was driven by the belief that all children - whoever they are, wherever they are - have the right to a healthy, happy and fulfilling life. This woman was the founder of Save the Children and she was determined to build "A world in which every child attains the right to survival, protection, development and participation”.

Save the Children is the world's leading independent child rights organisation which fights for children’s most basic rights in more than 80 countries to bring about a long-term change in their lives. In India, we work across 19 states by giving children a healthy childhood, the opportunity to get educated and ensure a protected environment during emergencies, humanitarian crises as well as at other times.

Over the last ten years, we have experienced rapid growth through delivering quality programmes which impact the lives of India's most deprived children. We are now recognised as the voice of the most unprivileged children of the country. This is because we have been relentless in our pursuit to give children a childhood to cherish and a future to look forward to. All this has been possible only due to the support of generous donors like you.

In 2017-18, we reached over, 23 lakh children to provide them education, keep them healthy and protect them from different forms of harm.

  • Supported 6.24 lakh children and their families through our Health & Nutrition interventions
  • Protected 11.8 lakh children from harm
  • Provided humanitarian relief to 3.63 lakh children and/or equipped them to face disasters and hazards better
  • Provide education support and/or access to quality education to 1.7 lakh children

FROM THE STREETS TO THE LORDS

Cricket is the world’s second most popular sport, played by over 120 million people and loved by 3 billion fans worldwide.

With the world looking to England and Wales in 2019 for the ICC Cricket World Cup, the Street Child Cricket World Cup will provide a level playing field for street-connected children to be seen and their voices heard – inspiring their countries and communities to better protect, respect and support street children everywhere.

The first ever Cricket World Cup for street-connected children will take place ahead of the 2019 ICC Cricket World Cup in England and Wales.

The Street Child Cricket World Cup will unite street children from around the world to play in their own international cricket tournament to raise awareness and tackle the widespread stigma and negative treatment they face.

On the pitch, 10 national teams, both girls and boys, will represent their countries. Off the pitch, the young people will make their voices heard and make recommendations to help improve the lives of street children worldwide
