Application to Sida for funding of the Global Civil Society Organisation Program 2017–2021

This five years’ application includes Save the Children Sweden’s Global CSO Program focusing on the thematic priority areas Child Rights Governance and Child Protection. It covers regional programs in Africa, Asia, Europe, Latin America and the Middle East, and national programs in 15 countries.  
The main part of the program will be carried out by SC Sweden’s 200 partner organisations. SC Sweden strongly believes that civic action is necessary to make children’s rights a reality, hence a strong civil society is crucial in order to promote, defend and fulfil children’s rights. 
Save the Children has very ambitious goals in the new global strategy Ambition 2030 with three global breakthroughs for children on survival, learning and protection. In order to advance these three breakthroughs, it will be imperative for Save the Children and its partners to work together across thematic sectors and to learn from each other. In this application SC Sweden puts a strong emphasis on thematic development and ways of working in order to improve children’s rights and protection against all forms of violence. Evaluations and learnings from direct interventions by partners will be a pre-condition for identifying and determining best ways of working. 
SC Sweden has developed this application in close collaboration with SC International’s country and regional offices and civil society partners. When forming the new direction, SC Sweden has taken into account aspirations set out by Save the Children in the new global strategy Ambition 2030, the Global Thematic Plans, and SC Sweden’s Operational Focus 2017–2024.
