This stunning artwork and flash animation is made to introduce the world to Eglantyne Jebb, founder of Save the Children. Twelve lessons in leadership tells her story of making a ngo succesful.
Shocked by the aftermath of World War 1 and the Russian Revolution, Eglantyne and her sister Dorothy Buxton were determined to secure improvements to children’s lives. Their goal was to create a powerful international organisation, which would extend its ramifications to the remotest corner of the globe. This was soon achieved – and Save the Children continues to build on this success.
Eglantyne Jebb was the first to press for worldwide safeguards for children. The UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, adopted by the United Nations in 1989 and now ratified by nearly all countries worldwide, has its roots in her pioneering work.
Some peolple compare Eglantyne Jebb with Martin Luther King and Mahatma Gandhi but isn’t that famous. I guess it is because she is from the pre-media age.
