    Save the Children is a leading international organization helping children in need around the world. First established in the UK in 1919, separate national organizations have been set up in more than twenty-

    eight countries, sharing the aim of improving the lives of children through education, health care and economic opportunities, as well as emergency aid in cases of natural disasters, war and conflict.

    In Nigeria, Save the Children has been working since 2001. The early focus was on getting children actively involved in shaping the decisions that affect their lives.

    Today, Save the Children is working in seven federal states - Zamfara, Yobe, Jigawa, Katsina, Kano, Bauchi and Kaduna - focusing on providing basic healthcare and protecting children.

    The Organisation

    We employ approximately 25,000 people across the globe and work on the ground in over 100 countries to help children affected by crises, or those that need better healthcare, education and child protection.

    We also campaign and advocate at the highest levels to realise the right of children and to ensure their voices are heard.

    We are working towards three breakthroughs in how the world treats children by 2030 :

    No child dies from preventable causes before their 5th birthdayAll children learn from a quality basic education and that,Violence against children is no longer tolerated

    We know that great people make a great organization, and that our employees play a crucial role in helping us achieve our ambitions for children.

    We value our people and offer a meaningful and rewarding career, along with a collaborative and inclusive workplace where ambition, creativity, and integrity are highly valued.
