Fundraising & Events

Thousands of South Africans attend or hold their own events every year to raise funds. Find out how you can get involved with a Save the Children event.  Your efforts can help improve the lives of children in South Africa.  

Every child deserves a safe and happy childhood. But there are still millions of children in South African who grow up without the basics.

That's why we are grateful to all of our amazing supporters who fundraise for us, attend events and hold their own events to support our programmes. Whether it's riding across the country on a bicycle, hosting a morning tea or running a marathon, we have lots of great ways for you to get involved:

Our core focus

Child Protection

Child Protection

South Africa is marked by high levels of violence and exploitation of children in places where they should be safe. All children should thrive in a safe environment.

Health & Nutrition

Health & Nutrition

No child under the age of 5 should die from preventable disease and all our children deserve long-term good health.

Children's Rights

Children's Rights

Insufficient resources prevent children from achieving their rights as enshrined in the South African Constitution. We are campaigning for a strengthened child-rights system.



The quality of education in the foundation years has a lasting impact and we are working hard to ensure that every child receives quality basic education.
