Save the Children

Save the Children is the largest independent children’s rights organization. Our work has a large DRR program, focused on school safety and urban resilience, particularly in informal settlements and slums. This includes project implementation, achieving collective impact, increasing knowledge, and advocating globally through active membership with Global Alliance for Disaster Risk Reduction & Resilience in the Education Sector (GADRRRES). To increase knowledge and global coordination on child-centred risk reduction, we published a research collection and co-facilitate the Safe Children, Safe Schools Community. We also co-founded a collaborative network of organizations to advance the global urban agenda for better cities for children and youth.
