About Our Partnership with Save the Children
PVH is proud to celebrate 15 years of partnership with Save the Children, reaching over 100,000 children and families in five countries through our programming.
The PVH Foundation began its partnership with Save the Children in 2005, and currently supports programming focused on early education and youth employability. This is part of PVH’s long-standing commitment to doing the right thing for our people, our communities and our planet. PVH has since engaged all of its businesses, regions and divisions in supporting this important cause.
Supporting Remote Communities Towards a Reconciled Nation
Save the Children has over 65 years’ experience working alongside Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities across Australia, including some of the most remote and difficult to access. Save the Children programs are based on a deep understanding of what works to achieve sustainable development in a global context. They work in genuine partnership with local organisations adding value and supporting organisations to deliver services directly, while building capacity for community control. Save The Children enters communities by invitation where a locally-identified capacity gap exists.
Despite the efforts of community leaders, governments and service providers, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people continue to face unacceptable barriers to living strong, proud and healthy lives, significantly impacting the developmental and life outcomes of children and families. Save the Children believes in an Australia where the diversity and richness of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures are recognised, respected and celebrated.
Save The Children works to ensure their service offering is focused on locally identified priorities, with the level of support tailored to the readiness of the community, including:
- Supporting vulnerable children by improving school readiness, attendance and learning, contributing to reducing the difference in school readiness and education outcomes between Indigenous and non-Indigenous children
- Providing up-skilling, training and social enterprises that provide pathways for meaningful, local jobs and financial independence
- Delivering regular maternal child health checks to ensure better health outcomes
- Addressing complex issues and helping parents and guardians to develop healthier coping strategies for their children
