Save the Children
Save the Children is the leading independent children’s rights organisation. The organisation works to ensure that every child has a future – in Switzerland and around the world.
Save the Children believes every child deserves a future. In Switzerland and around the world, their projects give children a healthy start in life, the opportunity to learn and protection from harm. When crisis strikes, and children are most vulnerable, their teams are always among the first to respond and the last to leave. They ensure children’s unique needs are met and their voices are heard. Save the Children does whatever it takes for children – every day and in times of crisis – transforming their lives and the future we share.
Example of their work:
Save the Children provides psychosocial support for children in emergency situations trough what are called “Child Friendly Spaces”. These spaces provide children with a safe environment where they can participate in activities to play, socialize, learn and express themselves. It’s a place where children can simply be kids, despite the trauma or stress they’ve endured.
Whether in a mobile container in a refugee camp, a tent after an earthquake or a room in an asylum-seeking shelter – the concept of Child Friendly Spaces is adapted to the circumstances, ensuring to provide the support needed for children.
