Save the Children
About the Company
We hire about 25,000 people worldwide and work on the ground in over 100 countries to support children impacted by disasters, or those in need of better health care , education and security for children. At the highest levels, we often work and lobby for the realization of children’s rights and to ensure that their voices are heard.
We are working towards three breakthroughs in how the world treats children by 2030:
- No child dies from preventable causes before their 5th birthday
- All children learn from a quality basic education and that,
- Violence against children is no longer tolerated
We recognize that great individuals make a great organization and that our employees play a vital role in helping us achieve our children’s ambitions. Along with a collaborative and inclusive workplace where passion, innovation, and dignity are highly respected, we respect our people and offer a meaningful and fulfilling career.
Since 1976, Save the Children has been operating in Afghanistan. Our way of working closely with people and on their own terms has helped us to bring about positive change for tens of thousands of children in the world. The foundation of our work is the UN Convention of the Rights of the Child.
We are helping children get a decent education, we are helping more boys and girls to go to school, we are helping children to defend themselves and we are affecting their own circumstances. We work in households, clinics and hospitals with families , communities and health workers to promote basic health in order to save the lives of children and mothers.
