    Introduction

    • Save the Children International is a 'dual mandate' organisation and as such equal priority will be given to both humanitarian and development work.
    • This is the only way we will be able to ensure that some of the fundamental rights that we believe children have, such as survival, safety and constant access to protection and education can be guaranteed.
    • As part of a commitment to work with children through humanitarian interventions Save the Children will support programmes in both sudden onset and chronic emergency situations.
    • SCI is seeking young and vibrant Youth Corpers to support our various projects.
