What's it about?

About Us
In the video above, one of our team members recounts her experience of the 2005 Mumbai floods in which her sister was stuck inside their school.  She emphasizes on how infrastructure and training helped a big metro like Mumbai get back to business as usual. The same possibilities are not available to children in remote towns and villages with poor infrastructure.

Save the Children trains teachers, families and children on how to be prepared in case of a disaster and ensures that children’s education is not impacted by it.

Our team is a part of the WHU MBA program today, but many children are unable to finish basic schooling when disaster interrupts their education.  Make a contribution and help ensure that their future continues to shine bright.  It's Time to Share!  We will also be out on the streets of Düsseldorf over the next few days, and look forward to meeting you in person.


Education Safe from Disaster
35.6 million people were affected by natural disasters in 2015 and over 41 million people have been affected this year.  Over 2 Million children have been affected by disasters this year until now, and the number is expected to increase.

This global initiative from Save the Children focuses on:
-        “Zero Children killed or injured at school during a disaster.”
-        “Zero days of school lost due to disaster.”
