Who We Are
Credit Line: Aytunc Akad/Panos/Save the Children
Save the Children is the world's leading independent organization for children. It comprises of Save the Children International (SCI) and 29 member organizations - all working together to deliver change for children in around 120 countries.
Save the Children has been operational in Iraq since 1991.
We respond to the humanitarian, recovery and development needs of children and families that have been affected by conflict. This includes assistance to internally displaced persons (IDPs), communities hosting IDPs, returnees and refugees who need access to basic and immediate assistance. We implement programmes that respond to the protection, education, mental health and psychosocial needs of children. We also have cash programming and work in communities to restore water and sanitation facilities and infrastructure.
Save the Children works by targeting those most in need, establishing strong relationships with communities, NGO actors, and local government bodies, so as to ensure sustainable and lasting impact.
From 2019 - 2021, we will implement our new Country Strategic Plan. We will also join national, regional and global voices asking the world to Stop the War on Children, our current global campaign.
WE BELIEVE THAT EVERY CHILD DESERVES TO SURVIVE, LEARN AND BE PROTECTED.
