Work and Achievements
Save The Children India is a non-profit organization established in 1988 and is committed to
‘Prevent exploitation and all forms of discrimination of women and children and empowering
them to lead a life of dignity, self-respect and independence. Founded in 1988 by Mrs. Vipula
Kadri, Save The Children India envisions India as a Child-Friendly Nation.
Our programs have impacted the lives of over 2 lac individuals directly. The organisation was
started in Mumbai, Maharashtra and since 1988 under the guidance of a robust and active
Board, our work has expanded across Maharashtra and Delhi.
Our Delhi Chapter: We started our Delhi Chapter in 2004 with the objective of empowering
women and children in the urban villages of Delhi – NCR. These villages of Delhi-NCR, which
largely comprise migrant population, are deprived in multiple ways; these include a lack of
education and employment opportunities, little/no social cohesion and social protection,
leading to violent, unhealthy environments.
The main burden of these deprivations falls on women and children, especially the girl child. Their education, employment and health statuses are particularly bad in relation to men and often violence against them is ignored, belittled or validated.
What we do: Our aim is to enable and collectivize women, children and their communities, so
that they can live lives free of violence and poverty. Therefore, we implement need-based
