RIGHTS OF MEMBERS
Every Member, Woman and Child has their rights no matter who they are or where they live. These include the right to Education, Protection and Survival. Nearly every government in the world has promised to Protect, Respect and fulfill these rights, yet everyday they are still violated.
The world’s first declaration of Women and Children’s rights was written by save the children’s founder, Eglantyne Jebb, in 1923. Jebb’s declaration formed the basis for the United Nations Convention on the rights of Women and Children. Almost every country in the world has signed up to the United Nation’s Convention on the rights of Women and Children but many still fail to prioritize and protect Women and Children.
Women and Children around the world face Poverty, Diseases, Discrimination and Exploitation every day. Many are out of School; some are used as cheap labour or recruited as child soldiers into armed forces. Millions face danger as refugees and many have been separated from their families and relatives.

- Ensuring that Women and Children’s view are heard by decision makers.
- Campaigning to get Women and Children’s rights included in laws and policies.
- Supporting Organizations that promote and protect Women and Children’s rights
