Save the Children also advocates with and for children nationally and globally. We aim to influence governments, international institutions, the private sector, and the general public to help realise children’s rights and ensure that their concerns are heard and addressed.

As part of our work, Save the Children is addressing the climate and nature crisis, which represents the biggest threat to the lives and futures of children. This includes supporting young activists to develop and implement their Red Alert campaign on the climate and nature crisis, as well as implementing related projects such the My Forest Child initiative, which supports reforestation and activities to help climate-vulnerable communities.

Tasks will include: conducting outreach with Singaporean youth and children interested in environmental activism; contributing ideas and solutions in internal discussions; helping to organise internal and external meetings and events; supporting the design, production and dissemination of campaign and communication materials; fulfilling administrative tasks.

Contribute to climate campaign and project-related discussions and planning

Help organise climate campaign and project-related meetings and activities
Create or contribute to climate project and campaign materials

The Organisation

We employ approximately 25,000 people across the globe and work on the ground in over 100 countries to help children affected by crises, or those that need better healthcare, education and child protection. We also campaign and advocate at the highest levels to realise the right of children and to ensure their voices are heard.

We are working towards three breakthroughs in how the world treats children by 2030:

No child dies from preventable causes before their 5th birthday
All children learn from a quality basic education and that,
Violence against children is no longer tolerated

We know that great people make a great organization, and that our employees play a crucial role in helping us achieve our ambitions for children. We value our people and offer a meaningful and rewarding career, along with a collaborative and inclusive workplace where ambition, creativity, and integrity are highly valued.
