About Save The Children
Save the Children was found over 100 years ago, by Eglantyne Jebb , as the first global organization devoted solely to serving children’s needs and securing their rights. To end children’s suffering as a result of the First World War, Jebb launched Save the Children Fund. She was driven by the belief that all children – whoever they are, wherever they are – have the right to a healthy, happy, fulfilling life.
Save the Children is working in Kosova/o since 1997, with the main office in Prishtinë/Priština and geographical presence in 7 muni cipalities (Peja, Prizren, Gjakova, Mitrovica South, Mitrovica North, Ferizaj, Klina, Junik and Gjilan). With a full-spectrum approach to programming, we engage in both long-term development projects and emergency interventions working in the field of Child Protection, Child Rights Governance, Education, and Health and Nutrition.
Our program approach is based on direct interventions and the establishment of good practices, capacity building of civil society, and local duty bearers to respond to the needs of children.
