  Save the Children - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Save the Children Fund was founded in London, England in 1919 by Eglantyne Jebb and her sister Dorothy Buxton.
This was the first important assertion of the rights of children as separate from adults, and began the process that would lead to the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, adopted by the United Nations in 1989 and now ratified by nearly all countries worldwide.
By the 1970s, Save the Children was one of the major aid agencies in the United Kingdom, and with a sufficiently secure place in the British establishment to merit a member of the Royal Family, Princess Anne, as its president.
