Save the Children Sweden

Acknowledging that social budgeting is an important indicator for governments and their representatives to show their commitment to childhood by assigning resources, Save the Children Sweden’s Regional Office for Latin America and the Caribbean is sponsoring the Universidad del Pacífico (Lima, Peru) in the preparation of studies that analyse public budgets focused on children’s welfare. The Global Handbook for Children aims to reinforce the struggle for the rights of the child, the main idea being to provide the methodological tools needed to build and interpret indicators of child health, education and nutrition.The first three chapters of the handbook act as a guide for those undertaking socio-economic research on the situation facing children in poor countries, and the fourth chapter turns to measuring the social spending on children in developing countries.
