“I said to him, ‘What do you think your future is like?’, and he looked around at this huge refugee camp and he said to me, ‘I don’t have a future.’ That’s the worst thing you could ever hear a child say, and that’s what we have to do something about.” 

Carolyn Miles, President and CEO of Save the Children, has been working to combat this all-too-common lack of hope for children’s livelihoods around the globe. Managing Editor Robert Rimm talks with Carolyn about her tenure at the helm of the organization, during which time Save the Children’s reach has more than doubled and its available resources have increased from $250 million to almost $700 million annually, with nearly 90% directly spent on programs for children. Carolyn is an unwavering advocate for increased childhood nutrition programs, access to education and learning outcomes, and protection for all children from harm.
