Let’s be honest. Most of us won’t celebrate our 100th birthday. Luckily, for the world and the 1 billion children whose lives have been changed for the better, Global Impact’s charity partner Save the Children is celebrating their centennial this year! Save the Children began in 1919 with a campaign to save suffering children across war-torn Europe in the aftermath of World War I. 

The more things change…
Imagine what life was like 100 years ago. Our lives are very different today versus how they were for people living in 1919. For example, 100 years ago:

Maya’s* story through a translator

“I love school because I learn manners, culture and respect. I learn everything.”

“Finish your studies because it is so beneficial. It teaches you culture, manners, reading and writing.

“My favourite subject is Arabic. Our house is close to the school, so it takes me five minutes to arrive here. I don’t care about going through the dust or sun or anything else to get here because I love studying at school. It teaches me reading and writing.

“At my school there are no female teachers and the male teachers aren’t teaching because they need to get paid.”

“My sister stopped going to school and now studies at home because there weren’t many girls in her class and no female teachers.”
