About Us

Save the Children has been working in Sri Lanka since 1974. Our work is based on the UN Convention in the Rights of the Child initiated by our Founder Eglantyne Jebb. In Sri Lanka our work is focused on Education, Child Protection, Child Rights Governance, Health and Nutrition, Livelihoods and Humanitarian. We carry out community-based projects, school-based projects, working with many duty bearers including government stakeholders, civil societies and non-governmental communities to partake in fulfilling and/or to contribute towards recognizing and respecting the rights of children.
