Save the Children supports the development of policies that help fulfil children’s rights as laid out in the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child, particularly for migrant, refugee and ethnic minority children. Save the Children is also one of the leading responders in humanitarian crises, supporting children and their families who are caught up in disasters and conflict, working towards lasting peace and resilience in disaster-prone areas.
What They Do: Save the Children Thailand supports vulnerable children through programs on Education, Child Protection, Child Safety for Survival, and Health and Nutrition. Through the Child Protection program, Save the Children works with vulnerable children including those on the move, engaging with hazardous labor, caught in conflict, as well as the stateless and undocumented children. Through the programs, children receive recovery support, safe family settings, and participate in decision-making processes on issues affecting their lives. Save the Children also works with the government to ensure that there is a standard of care that complies with international standards for children without appropriate care.
