Save the Children is the world’s leading independent organization for children. Save the Children works in around 120 countries to inspire breakthroughs in the way the world treats children and to achieve immediate and lasting change in their lives.
BCG began its global partnership with Save the Children in 2006. As part of this commitment, BCG has supported Save the Children in improving its effectiveness on a wide range of strategic, operational, and organizational issues. BCG has worked alongside Save the Children on its highest priorities, which have included medium- and long-term strategy, country operations, fundraising, and advocacy.
We have also worked on specific programs, such as their maternal- and newborn-health program and detailing and sharing the lessons learned from the organization's response to the 2010 earthquake in Haiti. In 2014, we supported Save the Children with its Ebola response.
Our BCG team supported Save the Children in creating a new strategy for the organization. The work included reviewing the social sector landscape to understand the important trends and players, and help prioritize initiatives to ensure Save the Children tackled the most important topics first.
I was excited to see how creating a strategy for a social sector organization required a remarkably similar process to that used by our corporate clients. It was incredibly rewarding to use our skills and resources to help drive success at a global nonprofit that changes children’s lives.
