Save the Children
This report shares findings from an online survey, interviews and a desk review about the scope and quality of children’s participation in Save the Children’s humanitarian programming. While children’s participation is recognised as a key principle of Save the Children’s programming approach, increased systematic efforts are needed to ensure children’s participation in humanitarian programming.
This review puts forward strategic recommendations and practical steps to prevent and overcome pragmatic, organisational, socio-cultural and ethical challenges to children’s participation. It aims to help ensure that meaningful, safe and inclusive children’s participation can be more systematically supported in humanitarian programming.
