Around the world, CGI Commitments to Action are creating new approaches for cleaner air and water, protecting habitats and species, and developing solutions to reverse climate change.
Early Childhood Care and Development in Emergencies
In 2008, Save the Children committed to supporting young children and their families affected by conflict and emergencies. Save has directly and positively affected the lives of children under age eight as well as their parents, caregivers, teachers, and health service providers through early childhood care and development programming and the Rewrite the Future Initiative.
Through this commitment, Save the Children has reached over 8,000 children in Afghanistan; over 3,000 children in Guatemala; and over 54,000 in Nepal with quality Early Childhood programming and support. They have also worked in Uganda to provide over 5,000 flood-affected children and their families with safe spaces that included educational and play materials.
In 2013, carbon dioxide emissions comprised 82 percent of all U.S. greenhouse gases released into the atmosphere from human activities. The rising concern for our environment and the sustainability of the planet has led to more focused efforts on reversing the effects of climate change.
