75 YEARS OF LASTING CHANGE FOR CHILDREN IN NEED
Seventy-five years ago, in January 1932, a group of committed individuals were inspired by the vision of Eglantyne Jebb to establish Save the Children in the United States. Their immediate goal was to help the children and families struggling to survive during the Great Depression in the rugged mountains of Appalachia. Out of their efforts to provide food, clothing and health care for those impoverished families grew our organization, which today reaches out to millions of children in more than 50 countries worldwide.
We honor the tens of thousands of men and women who helped children in need down the path to health, education and productive lives. But even as we acknowledge their work, we know that this anniversary does not mark the achievement of Eglantyne Jebb’s vision of positive, lasting change for all children in need.
