Urge Congress to Support More Funding for Early Childhood Development Programs in the U.S. and developing countries around the world
Early childhood education is a proven investment in economic prosperity, social development and the survival and well-being of children and their families. Yet alarming numbers of children are at risk of failure in primary school — both in the United States and overseas.

If there is one thing we've learned from the past decade, it's that disasters can strike at any moment. But even more frightening is the fact that in most states the needs of children are largely ignored during a disaster, leaving them even more vulnerable to its effects. Save the Children has developed a five-point-plan, with real steps that can take to protect children before, during and after a disaster. Help us tell Congress and the Obama Administration that children need protection by signing our petition and letting your voice be heard.
