Save the Children is the world’s largest independent children’s organization, making immediate and long-lasting improvements to children’s lives in over 120 countries worldwide. Save the Children is made up of 27 member organisations across the globe.

Through Unified Presence, Save the Children aims to create a stronger voice for children by unifying the operations in all countries where more than one Save the Children Member organizations operates. This will result in one organisation at the national level in each country and a unified programme delivery structure for all Save the Children Alliance Members.

Save the Children has a long history of working in partnership in Somalia and it is one of the leading INGO’s working in Somalia for the rights of children.

Save the Children has a unified presence in Somalia and Somaliland since January 2010 and is working in the thematic areas of education (including skills training for youth), health, protection and emergency responses.
