Save the Children protects children from abuse, neglect, exploitation, and violence in all regions of the world. In the United States, we provide critical services in the aftermath of disasters and
Our programmes focus on the most vulnerable children while aiming for the safety and well-being of all children. Working with governments, international organizations, and local community partners, we strive to create lasting change with improvements in policy and services that protect children whether in a natural disaster, conflict, or development setting. In 2013, 12,659 children were reached directly with OVC services throughout the year and an additional 55,804 people reached indirectly in Kaduna, Katsina and Bauchi States through our child protection programs.
Some examples of our child protection programme activities include two OVC programmes; namely Links for Children and Systems Transformed for Enhancing Enabling Responses (STEER).
