  • Change a lot more complicated than this chart-many factors that make change happen But these are some of the key steps Issue: Know what you want to change Who has the power to make change? Who do you need to influence? MP, Prime Minister-national change International-Banki Moon Local level-council School-your headmaster How will you influence them? What are your tactics? Insider-lobbying/private meetings/relationships Outsider-mobilisation of public to put pressure on gov-petitions, protest,etc Many other factors: what opportunities are there? Key meetings e.g. G8, is it in the media Is it likely to be successful?/will change realistically happen? Will talk about these factors when introducing some of our Save the Children campaigns
  • The news shows that when children have access to health workers, vaccines and enough of the right food, they live to fulfil their potential. It shows that aid works – and that together we can influence world leaders to do the right thing.
  • , including India, Indonesia, Ethiopia, Niger and Zambia.
  • Now, a deadly combination of climate change, rising food prices and the global economic crisis means the number of children across the world going hungry is actually on the rise. a life sentence of hunger Malnutrition is the hidden cause of over 2.6 million child deaths every year; every hour of every day 300 children die because they can ’t get the food they need. children are left so weakened by relentless hunger that their starved bodies can ’t fight off illnesses like diarrhoea or pneumonia. You won ’t see it on their death certificates, but malnutrition is the biggest underlying cause of children dying globally. For those who survive, hunger can be a life sentence. long-term malnutrition causes devastating and irreversible damage to children ’s bodies and brains, permanently stunting their growth and meaning they do less well in school and later life. And when children are consistently getting too little to eat, they ’re far less able to cope when things reach crisis point, as they have across Africa. Right now, extreme hunger has gripped the entire width of the continent – from Senegal on the west coast to Somalia on the east. More than a million children there face starvation. This devastating crisis is yet another indication that the international response system isn ’t working. Too often help comes too little, too late, and children pay the price with their lives.
