Save the Children has been working in Pakistan since 1980, when it first implemented its program for Afghan refugees. After the repatriation of Afghan refugees, Save the Children expanded the scope of its programs to fulfill the rights and needs of the children of Pakistan so that they achieve a happy, healthy and secure childhood. Today, Save the Children is one of the leading child rights development organizations with a country-wide humanitarian response program.
We are successfully implementing our programs: on Child Protection, Child Rights Governance, Health & Nutrition, Education & Child Development, Food Security & Livelihood and Humanitarian Program in more than 60 districts of Pakistan including the 7 Federally Administered Tribal Areas and 6 Frontier Regions.
Till the year May 2011, three members of Save the Children - Save the Children Sweden, Save the Children UK and Save the Children USA remained committed to ensure the rights of children and their families in Pakistan through their respective programs. On May 2011, all three Members merged together under the umbrella of one unified program of Save the Children in Pakistan.
