Save the Children believes that all children have the right to learn from a quality basic education. Save the Children works with families and communities to ensure that all children receive the support and care they need in the years leading up to school. Once in primary education, we work to ensure that all children learn to read and write in safe and happy learning spaces, and that no child’s learning stops because they are caught up in a crisis situation.
