Children and their families are better off today than they were almost two decades ago, thanks to increased political will and increased resources.However, our job is not yet done.

One in four children is still denied the right to childhood. Every day, 15,000 children die before reaching their 5th birthday, mostly from preventable or treatable causes. Every two seconds, a girl gives birth. 152 million children worldwide are involved in child labor – that’s more than all the children in Europe.

In 2015, world leaders gathered at the United Nations to make a bold commitment – to end poverty in all its forms by 2030 and protect the planet for future generations. The Sustainable Development Goals paint a vision of a future in which all children enjoy their rights to health, education and protection. These goals promise that those who are furthest behind – the most excluded in society – would be reached first.

This September, world leaders are gathering to review the progress towards their promises. Save the Children is calling on all leaders to live up to their commitments to make sure no child is left behind by increasing investment in every last child.
