WATCH: When I grow up…

Save the Children talks to the kids of Leyte to listen to their dreams and aspirations. Will you help them reach their fullest potentials?

Do you remember what you wanted to be when you were a child?

Some of us were able to achieve our goals, while others are still on their way of making their dreams happen. Many of us are lucky enough to get the support and care we need to help us go after what we want.

Not all Filipino children, however, are as lucky. Many do not even have access to their basic needs such as healthy food and proper education.

In the Philippines, children are the 3rd poorest basic sector, next to farmers and fisher folks. Together, we can change this.

Sometimes all these children need is a chance. Every child deserves the chance to learn, explore their interests, and hone their skills.

With your support, we can give children the childhood they rightfully deserve.

Save the Children’s programs on child protection and governance, education, health and nutrition, hygiene and sanitation are saving and changing lives nationwide.

Help us in our mission to ensure that no child is left behind. Sign up and be a regular donor today.
