Changing the Conversation: Save the Children USA

It’s no secret that I’ve been lucky to work closely with the great organization that is Save the Children USA. They seem to be making leaps and bounds in their attempt to change the conversation about global poverty. I absolutely love this video:

It’s a great balance of the harsh reality but also combined with a really positive and hopeful message. If you were on the fence about how great Save the Children is – hopefully this video has erased any doubt πŸ™‚

    Hey David – it's always good to hear from the folks at Save the Children. The one big contact I know at the UK branch is Nick Downie. If you see him before you head to SC India – please tell him I said hi πŸ™‚ And I'd love to stay in touch because I'm always looking for opportunities to team up with Save the Children whenever possible πŸ™‚

    Thanks! I am normally in the field (last five years in south Asia: Nepal, Sri Lanka, India) and not in the London office and now working for Save India not sure when I'll be getting back there… If you're interested in the child labour angle and it's correlation to poverty reduction programming, then you should absolutely stay in touch. Save India will be leading what will be the largest child labour reduction programme of all Save programmes from Feb./March of this year–it is being funded by IKEA and is multi-year and multi-state in nature. I'll be head of child protection and based in Rajasthan for the next two years. Consider a field visit!!

    Best,

    Great to hear you touting the work of Save the Children–the organisation I work for albeit the UK version (and soon to be working for Save the Children India: the newest global alliance member). "Changing the conversation" about child poverty, as you point out, involves more than just addressing problems, but digger deeper for the root causes of problems–the actual activities of any project. This is how SC's rights-based approaches to poverty and child protection work well: it is collaborative and participatory in nature (especially directing involving children) and seeks to help children and communities access their rights. Keep up your good work!
