Save the Children has established six Global Initiatives to facilitate progress on its priority strategic themes (Child Survival, Emergencies, HIV, Child Protection, Education – and Child Rights Governance).
These Global Initiatives aim to facilitate coherence, coordination and oversight in delivery of the thematic components of the new Save the Children strategy and are complementary, not competitive, with the role and functions of the Members and the IPU.
The Global Initiatives operate to support the delivery of the goals set for each of the key thematic sectors of the new strategy, working with Save the Children member organisations and Save the Children International Program to achieve this. They help to shape and guide the work of the Members and the International Program towards the achievement of these goals by creating awareness about them, supporting coordinated planning for their delivery, brokering technical and other support, providing capacity building, establishing CRG thematic networks, organising global advocacy, etc.
The Child Rights Governance Global Initiative is the specific initiative set up to support the delivery of the Save the Children strategy in the area of child rights governance.
