Save the Children Sweden

Save the Children Sweden has been present in Côte d'Ivoire since 1999. We support children's own organisations, community-based initiatives, local NGOs, media workers and government structures to promote the respect for children's rights. We support initiatives to prevent trafficking, abuse and exploitation of children and we have a project to train military on child protection and the impacts of conflict on children. From 2006 we will expand our program to enhance quality education for children affected by the conflict in collaboration with Save the Children UK. This is part of an initiative at a global level from Save the Children Alliance to contribute to the Millennium Development Goal on education.
