The Desert Flower

Save the Children has been working in the Dadaab refugee camp, Kenya, to protect the well-being of children, especially those categorized as vulnerable. As populations streamed into the camps, Save the Children set up safe spaces to address the emergency needs of the children who were arriving.

The focus of Save the Children’s work in Dadaab is to provide child friendly spaces for children to participate in supervised play, empower teenage mothers to care for their children and themselves, provide education through accelerated basic education and also link vulnerable children with services essential for their wellbeing. Of importance in the initiative is to empower community structures to care and protect their children through trainings on child protection with a general objective of making every child’s life much better.
