“A world in which all children with needs either related to poverty or medical conditions will be protected and nurtured holistically in an eco-friendly environment”.
“To create an environment of hope and respect for the children with special needs and assist each child in reaching their maximum potential through holistic interventions . We, a group of individuals who believe that it is our social responsibility to advocate child rights achieve this mission by empowering the local organizations, mainly in India, that cater to the needs of special needs children.We also strengthen our mission by inspiring others to join us in the movement of the welfare of every child with disabling challenges.”
At Save the Child Foundation, we believe that we are socially responsible in bringing a change in the lives of the underprivileged and special needs children. This change is possible when individuals like you and me, join hands and work towards the protection and betterment of every child with special need.
Save the Child Foundation supports organizations that mainly work in the villages of India and strive for the welfare of special needs children. Save the Child Foundation’s strength is in its volunteers, donors, event sponsors, facebook fans and partners. By joining hands together, we can help make a difference in rehabilitating families and communities by helping one special needs child at a time.

Develop Innovative Programs
Pratham uses outcome-driven programs that reconfigure teaching methodologies and challenge ineffective learning mechanisms. Our strategies focus on results, accountability and continuous learning and improvement.
Build Scalable Models
Pratham’s low-cost learning models are rigorously tested and evaluated so they can be easily replicated on a larger scale to provide quality education to every child.
Pratham’s willingness to take risks, adapt to changing circumstances and look beyond our own programs gives us the leverage to create broader change. We amplify our impact by freely sharing information with other nonprofits and using our findings to advocate for large-scale policy changes.
We engage parents, teachers and government to make learning a community effort. Local volunteers are vetted, trained and monitored to help implement learning interventions at the grassroots level using Pratham’s high-quality teaching materials.
The Water Project
ePace has been supporting The Water Project in their mission to provide access to clean, safe and reliable water across sub-Saharan Africa. They help bring clean water through new wells, rehabbed wells, sand dams, rainwater catchment systems and/or spring protections to schools, medical clinics and villages. Below is some information on how they work, and you can visit https://thewaterproject.org to learn more.
We come alongside every partner and help them develop programs that meet the needs of their neighbors. We listen first, and offer what we know with humility.
Tools and technology allow our small teams to do far more then they could otherwise. But, these tools never get in the way of relationship and respect.
With partners and teams around the world, we’re able to spread learning and best practices quickly. All of us can then work together toward lasting solutions.
DKMS – Delete Blood Cancer
ePace supports DKMS in their mission to delete blood cancer by finding patients with matching donors. Founded 25 years ago in Germany by Dr. Peter Harf when he lost his wife Mechtild to leukemia. Peter promised her that he would help every blood cancer patient find a matching donor.
At that time, there were only 3,000 potential stem cell donors available to provide a transplant in Germany and within one year of founding DKMS, the number of stem cell donors increased to 68,000. Below is some more information about DKMS and their mission, and you can learn more by visiting https://www.dkms.org.
Today, DKMS has offices in Germany, the United States (opened 2004), Poland (2009), Spain (2011) and the UK (2013) and has registered over 6 million potential donors worldwide. DKMS has over 600 staff members from 20 countries dedicated to helping give every blood cancer patient a second chance at life. DKMS is driven by innovation and invests in our people’s ideas in order to be the premier provider of assistance to blood cancer patients throughout the world.
DKMS is an international not for profit organization dedicated to the fight against blood cancer and blood disorders by: creating awareness; recruiting bone marrow donors to provide a second chance at life; raising funds to match donor registration costs; supporting the improvement of therapies through research; and supporting patients from day one of their diagnoses.
