    Save the Children is the world's leading independent organisation for children. We work in 120 countries. We save children's lives; we fight for their rights; we help them fulfil their potential.

    We work together, with our partners, to inspire breakthroughs in the way the world treats children and to achieve immediate and lasting change in their lives.

    We have over two million supporters worldwide and raised 1.9 billion dollars last year to reach more children than ever before, through programmes in health, nutrition, education, protection and child rights, also in times of humanitarian crises.

    Following a major transition, our international programmes are now delivered through a merged operation with 15,000 staff, managed through seven regional hubs and reporting to a relatively small, central office. We're changing to become more efficient, more aligned, a better partner, a stronger advocate, a magnet for world-class people and relevant for the 21st century.

    Regional CSOs and Youth Networks Scoping


    Job Description

    In 2018, Save the Children International is embarking on a new programme supported by Save the Children Denmark. The DANIDA Civil Society LOT grant, is aimed at strengthening youth engagement with regional bodies and the empowerment of youth networks in the Horn of Africa (HoA).The programme is expected to contribute to ensuring that governments in the Horn of Africa create enabling conditions that make the region a better place for children and youth to learn, be protected from violence and engage in decisions that affect them and their region. Ultimately, the programme is expected to build children, youth and civil society organisation's capacity to influence policy processes and outcomes and position them as critical actors in making the HoA a better place for children and youth. The programme is expected to contribute to ensuring that governments in HoA (Djibouti, Ethiopia, Eritrea, Somalia/Somaliland, Kenya and South Sudan) create conditions that make the region a better place for children and youth to learn, be protected from violence, engage in decisions that affect them and their region, and thrive. Ultimately, the programme's impact will be the realization of the rights of children and youth (boys and girls) through strengthened state accountability and civil society organization at the regional level.

    Save the Children International, Regional and Multi-Country Programming Unit, is inviting youth organisations in the Horn of Africa region, with a regional focus on empowerment and youth participation to submit their Expression of Interest to partner with Save the Children International, on the above mentioned exciting programme. SCI seeks expression of interest from organisations who are able to implement programming activities within the Horn of Africa region to engage effectively with regional and sub-regional decision-making and accountability processes such as the AU and IGAD particularly in relation to topical youth human rights issues such as child marriage, protection of education from attacks and military use during armed conflicts, youth migration and youth civic empowerment.
