Sponsorship: Shishuder Jonno

Save the Children is implementing integrated projects and programmes in both development and humanitarian contexts, where different types of beneficiaries are identified from the same source by a single point of community-based workers. This is inherently more efficient as it reduces costs by combining resources, avoids duplication or exclusion of beneficiaries, and helps determine the appropriate type and amount of support. Through our Shishuder Jonno programme, we support the development of children, particularly those deprived of basic needs and services like health, education, and livelihood opportunities. We follow a life cycle approach to implement a comprehensive set of activities appropriate to each life stage for children until they are 18 years old, encompassing services for mothers and new-borns health and nutrition, early childhood care and development, and basic education with a focus on digital innovation, school health, and nutrition and adolescent development. We always promote child protection, child rights, and governance through our work; and encourage community mobilisation and gender inclusion. We actively involve children, their families, and community actors to address the needs of the children and create an enabling environment for them.
