Our role in

As part of Saamuhika Shakti, Save the Children India focuses on access to quality basic education for less privileged children aged 3 to 18 from waste picker families and neighboring communities.

Who we are

Save the Children is India’s leading independent child rights’ NGO, which works in 18 states of the country. Beginning its journey in 2008 in India, and registered as ‘Bal Raksha Bharat’, we have changed the lives of more than 11 million (1.1 crore) children.

How we do it

By providing support at the household and community level, infrastructure and capacity building at the school and Anganwadi level

Activities and impact

The buses were launched at Vidhana Soudha by Honorable Minister for Education Sri. BC Nagesh in October 2021.
Vaccine awareness : A mobile van campaign with a video to raise awareness on taking the COVID-19 vaccine was launched in December 2021 to address vaccine hesitancy in Bengaluru.
