In 2018, Save the Children International is embarking on a new programme supported by Save the Children Denmark. This grant, is aimed at strengthening CSO's engagement with regional bodies and the empowerment of child rights focused CSO's in the Horn of Africa (HoA). The programme is expected to contribute to ensuring that governments in the Horn of Africa create enabling conditions that make the region a better place for children and youth to learn, be protected from violence and engage in decisions that affect them and their region. Ultimately, the programme is expected to build children and civil society organisation's capacity to influence policy processes and outcomes and position them as critical actors in making the HoA a better place for children and youth. The programme is expected to contribute to ensuring that governments in HoA (Djibouti, Ethiopia, Eritrea, Somalia and South Sudan) create conditions that make the region a better place for children and youth to learn, be protected from violence, engage in decisions that affect them and their region, and thrive. Ultimately, the programme's impact will be the realization of the rights of children and youth (boys and girls) through strengthened state accountability and civil society organization at the regional level.
