Save the Children is the world’s leading independent organisation for children.

OUR VISION is a world in which every child attains the right to survival, protection, development and participation.

Save the Children Italia (SC IT) was created in 1998 and is now a prominent member of Save the Children International.

AMBITION: We are demanding of ourselves and our colleagues, set high goals and are committed to improving the quality of everything we do for children. COLLABORATION: We respect and value each other, thrive on our diversity, and work with partners to leverage our global strength in making a difference for children. CREATIVITY: We are open to new ideas, embrace change, and take disciplined risks to develop sustainable solutions for and with children. INTEGRITY: We aspire to live to the highest standards of personal honesty and behavior; we never compromise our reputation and always act in the best interests of children.

To finance our work, we depend on the support of the general public, volunteers, the corporate sector, governments and international donor agencies.


At Save the Children Italy we are committed to the safeguarding and protection of beneficiaries – children and adults – in our work. Save the Children believes that beneficiaries – children and adults -should never experience any kind of abuse. We have a responsibility to work in a way that promotes the welfare of beneficiaries and protects them from any kind of harm. Our Organization has a zero tolerance approach to any harm or exploitation of beneficiaries by any of our staff, representatives, or partners. Save the Children expects the highest standards of behavior from all its staff when dealing with beneficiaries. Those who are representing Save the Children must adhere to the Child Safeguarding Policy and the Policy for protection against sexual exploitation, abuse, harassment, intimidation, discrimination, and abuse of authority, both in their private and professional lives.

Save the Children Italy will do everything possible to ensure that only those who are suitable to work with children are recruited to work for us.
