At Save the Children Australia we manage and implement programs in Australia, Papua New Guinea, Solomon Islands, Timor Leste and Vanuatu.
We also lead Save the Children’s on-the-ground response in humanitarian emergencies for much of the Asia Pacific region, rapidly dispatching staff and resources to affected areas and coordinating ongoing relief efforts to protect affected children and their families.
The definition of a child is anyone up to the age of 18. This is the definition used by the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) which Australia signed in 1990. This is a very important document and underpins all of the work carried out by Save the Children through our programs and activities.
In Australia, our early childhood development, child protection and youth engagement programs improve the well-being of children and families. We work with communities across the country, delivering programs to help disadvantaged, Indigenous, migrant and refugee children and young people reach their full potential.
We also support development programs through our global network in selected countries in Asia, Africa and Latin America
