Their community-led programs currently span humanitarian response, climate change, education, and health.
Globally, SCC implements programs for children in crisis who live in many of the most fragile contexts and hardest to reach areas around the globe. Their programs includes everything from rapid humanitarian response to longer-term development efforts. Whether in an emergency or more stable context their overarching goal is to empower girls and boys to fulfill their rights, ensuring every last child has an equal right to survive, learn and be protected.
