Stolen Childhood - 
700  Million Children Robbed of Childhood. Arjun, age 11, orphaned and 
alone, is forced into daily, backbreaking work in India's brick kilns, 
instead of going to school. Thanks to you, he now attends a Save the 
Children learning center   catching up on the lost years of his 
childhood. More than anything, Arjun hopes to one day go to a real 
school.

Half of the children around the world could be missing out on childhood. Yes, half. These children are excluded from the basics that every child deserves – health care… an education… even food. The reasons « why » vary. 1 billion children live in countries plagued by poverty. And every day, more than 15,000 children die before their fifth birthday from preventable causes.

Today, on International Children’s Day — Save the Children publishes our second annual End of Childhood Report, The Many Faces of Exclusion. The report identifies eight ways children get robbed of their childhoods. Each event represents an assault on childhood.

Child is Severely 
Malnourished - 
       Nearly 1/4 of children under age 5 around the world have stunted 
growth because of malnutrition. -
Child Marriage - 
Globally, a girl under the age of 15 gets married every 7 seconds.
Child is a victim 
of extreme violence - Armed conflict has forced an estimated 28 million 
children from their homes.
End of Childhood in the U.S.?

The report compares the data for 175 countries and assesses where the most children are missing out on childhood. Although it’s true that most of these excluded children live in the developing world, you may be surprised to see how the U.S. stacks up.

Thanks to the generosity of people like you, Save the Children is on the ground every day doing whatever it takes to give children a healthy start in life, the opportunity to learn and protection from harm. Because no child should be excluded — every last child deserves a childhood.

Sincerely,
