Organization background: Save the Children is the world's largest independent organization for children, making a difference to children's lives in over 120 countries. We deliver immediate and lasting improvements to children's lives worldwide. 

Save the Children listens to children, involves children and ensures their views are taken into account. Save the Children secures and protects children's rights - to food, shelter, healthcare, education and freedom from violence, abuse and exploitation.

Our vision is a world in which every child attains the right to survival, protection, development and participation.

Our mission is to inspire breakthroughs in the way the world treats children, and to achieve immediate and lasting change in their lives.

Save the Children has been operational in Kenya since the 1950s, providing support to children through developmental and humanitarian relief programmes delivered both directly and through local partners. Current programming focuses on child protection, child rights governance, education, health, HIV/AIDS, livelihoods, nutrition and WASH. 


The rights-based approach of our interventions is founded on four pillars: direct programming, political and policy change, popular mobilization and fundraising. We provide support through both longer term development work and humanitarian relief in emergencies. 

In 2012, as part of a global reorganization process, Save the Children combined the programmes of SC UK, SC Canada and SC Finland to create a single operation in Kenya. In Feb 2014, we completed a second transition, which saw us join forces with the British INGO, Merlin, and merge their health and nutrition programmes with our own. 

Save the Children now has an operational presence in Bungoma, Dadaab Refugee Camp, Garissa, Mandera, Turkana and Wajir and we work through partners in many other parts of the country. We employ more than 300 staff and have an operating annual budget in 2014 of approximately US$25 million.

Save the Children has a strong track record of supporting health systems through direct interventions, policy analysis and advocacy across all the 6 building blocks. 

As a child rights organization, we are committed to ascertain and follow the priorities of the communities we work with and to increase child and community participation in governance, policy-making and delivery of health services. 

Summary of current programmes: With funding from diverse donors we are implementing programmes in Wajir, Mandera, Turkana, Nairobi, Garissa and Bungoma Counties. 

Our programming covers the areas of Health and nutrition, HIV and AIDS, Education, Food Security and Livelihoods, Water hygiene and sanitation, child protection and child right programming:

As an integral cross-cutting component of our work we advocate for policy change and allocation of resources required to save children’s lives. 

At the national level we actively engage with policy makers and processes to lobby for sustained investments in actions that have lasting and positive impact on children’s lives. 

We are building strong coalitions with like-minded partners and are members of key civil society networks such as HENNET.  

We participate in policy and strategic forums such as Inter-agency Coordination Committees (ICCs), Kenya Food Security Steering Committee (KFSSG), Nutritional Technical Forum and a number of thematic technical working groups at the national and county level. 

Save the Children is also in the Executive Committee of the Scaling Up Nutrition Civil Society Network.  

We also draw on our global expertise to undertake policy analysis and publish technical reviews and briefs as well as comparative case studies to inform policy. 

Our EVERY ONE campaign is about mobilizing and galvanizing popular movement of people and organizations in Kenya, to advocate for the critical changes that must happen for child survival to be guaranteed.
