Save the Children

Save the Children’s child protection thematic plan for 2016-2018 presents Save the Children’s goals and targets to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and contributions to Save the Children’s 2030 breakthroughs:

  • No child dies from preventable causes before their fifth birthday
  • All children learn from a quality basic education
  • Violence against children is no longer tolerated

The changing context for violence against children – political instability, conflict, climate change, information technology, and more – requires new thinking and problem solving. In developing this thematic plan, Save the Children consolidated learning and experience, especially lessons learned from the 2013-15 strategy.

Child protection will now focus on four sub-thematic areas:

  • Protection of children from violence
  • Appropriate care
  • Protection of children from harmful work
  • Child protection systems

Resilience, child participation, cross-thematic work and cooperation, gender, and inclusion will all be given greater space in Save the Children’s child protection programming.
