Save the Children Sweden

This video shares children’s own voices from today’s Rio de Janeiro. Life for children living in Complex da Maré favela, a township in Rio de Janeiro, is threatened by violence, gang activities, and discrimination by the community. One partner’s project which Save the Children Sweden supports is the centre “Fight for Peace”, which provides a safe, nurturing environment for children to learn, grow, and come together to express their concerns. 

Save the Children Sweden fights for children’s rights. We deliver immediate and lasting improvements to children’s lives worldwide.

Save the Children Sweden works for: 

  • a world which respects and values each child
  • a world which listens to children and learns
  • a world where all children have hope and opportunity
