A Century for Children...It Starts with Us. Save the Children 2000 Annual Report.
Hollander, Vera; Torsney, Janet
Save the Children was founded in 1932 as a nonprofit child-assistance organization to help children and families improve their health, education, and economic opportunities. This annual report presents information on the activities of the organization for the year 2000 and details its financial position. Beginning with highlights of the year's activities, the report continues with a letter from the president and chairman of the Board of Trustees noting the receipt of two multi-million dollar grants that will enhance the organization's ability to improve the lives of poor children. Other sections of the report discuss Save the Children's efforts related to: (1) children in developing countries, including efforts to ensure children's right to good health, the Saving Newborn Lives initiative, work to increase girls' school attendance and women's economic opportunities, and meeting the challenges of global hunger; (2) children in emergencies and crisis, including the work in Ethiopia, central Asia, Mozambique, and East Timor, as well as assistance to HIV/AIDS victims and children involved in natural disasters; (3) America's forgotten children, including information on the impact of the Web of Support, providing support for after-school programs for children in poverty, supporting teen leadership, and piloting a web-based campaign to inform, connect, and mobilize teens to help children worldwide; and (4) community solutions through sponsorship, including the sponsorship of individual children and community development. A map details the national and international areas served by Save the Children and the International Save the Children Alliance. The annual report also includes the financial report, a list of organization supporters, and a list of Save the Children staff. (KB)
