Save the Children’s global strategy, Ambition for Children 2030 and the 2016-2018 Strategic Plan aims to build a better world for and with children. An important aspect of this work is to develop our global knowledge culture, capacity, and systems. The Resource Centre plays an important role in this as a modern knowledge management tool for Save the Children staff and as a unique source of knowledge to our external audiences (thematic experts, partners, academia and the public).


The eLibrary provides access to full-text publications, reports, toolkits, guidelines, and video clips from Save the Children and other publishers working in areas linked to our thematic areas.
