- Projects: Save back to school in Yemen & Corona Aid in India
- Responsible body: Save the children (association; Germany)
- Supported since 2021
Save the Children was founded in 1919 by teacher and social reformer Eglantyne Jebb in Great Britain and has been committed to the rights and protection of children around the world ever since. The work of the organization is based on the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child and the goals for sustainable development. Children and families themselves are always included in project development and evaluation – because they can assess best which kind of help is needed. The organization has a very good international reputation and has its expenses regularly checked by independent organisations (e.g. Charity Navigator or the DZI donation seal). The DZI has been certifying that the German association uses its resources efficiently and transparently since 2011. In addition, Save the Children Germany e.V. voluntarily joined the Transparent Civil Society Initiative. The German branch of the international network of Save the Children was established in 2004.
Moving Child supports two Save the Children programs that are particularly close to our hearts. The first is “Safe back to School” in Yemen. The prolonged state of war, the destruction of many schools and school closings due to pandemics often lead to the permanent school/education dropout of many children in Yemen. “Safe back to school” plays a very special role here, as many parents keep their children at home because the way to and from school is too dangerous. Save the Children establishes contact with the children, distributes learning material for homeschooling and supports the return of the children to the schools. (Read more about this project in our blog post.) The second project is “Corona Emergency Aid” in India. Children are particularly affected by the consequences of the extremely high number of infections in May and June in India. Many are orphaned and defenseless. The supply of the children with food, hygiene products, medication and psychological and social help is often interrupted or not possible at all. Save the Children takes care of urgently needed medical and social care for children in India. (More info about this project can be found in our blog.)
