Save the Children Sweden
Save the Children Sweden (SCS) has a long-standing tradition on programming for the advancement of children’s right to protection from all forms of violence. By taking the lead on child protection themes within Save the Children, and during the process for the UN Study on Violence against Children, SCS has been in a position to contribute its thematic and strategic expertise to the common development of SC’s child protection programming. It also influenced the organisational development in this area. This study was initiated to assess and evaluate Save the Children Sweden’s child protection work in follow-up to the UN Violence Study. It identifies lessons learned from SCS’s child protection work, including relevant achievements and challenges, as well as recommendations for the way forward. The study is based on a literature review and a survey with key informants in SCS Regional Offices, the CPI, and selected SCS national partners. It is global in scope and focuses on SCS’s child protection work in development programming, in particular the advocacy and capacity building work to strengthen national child protection systems (NCPS), from 2006 to 2010.
