Empowering Change 
on the frontlines of health

Save the Children believes every child deserves a future. Around the world, Save the Children gives children a healthy start in life, the opportunity to learn and protection from harm. The organization does whatever it takes for children – every day and in times of crisis – transforming their lives and the future we share. In 2017 Save the Children reached more than 155 million children in 120 countries – including more than 49 million children directly.

Save the Children has been a partner of the Secondment Program since 2019. Last year, two J&J employees shared their skills and experiences with the NGO in a long-term (4-6 months) secondment role. This year, one traditional and two lion secondees will use their talent for good to support the Save the Children organization in the field of Newborn Health. Our traditional secondee will support Save the Children Egypt’s health advisor to transfer learning and best practices from previous projects to the Public and Community Health team in Minya. Our two lion secondees will develop a responsive, competitive strategy for Save the Children’s corporate engagement to address child labor in the cocoa industry.

Save the Children is a long-standing global partner of Johnson & Johnson.

The Johnson & Johnson Family of Companies and the Trust have been involved in multiple interventions in supporting Save the Children in the plight of Syrian refugees since 2015.

For children trying to cope with trauma whilst in the most important emotional and physical development stage of their life, access to early childhood care and development (ECCD) services as well as psycho-social support is crucial.

Building the capacity of local care providers in ECCD is a core component of the Trust’s response to the Syrian refugee crisis. 

Children’s survival in rural villages in Upper Egypt and in urban slums in Egypt is high with 49 deaths per 1000 live births in the poorest areas. Nine out of ten of these deaths occur before the child’s first birthday. The Trust is partnering with Save the Children to deliver community-based solutions that improve the lives of the most vulnerable. Read More

Save the Children International is very excited to receive support through the Secondment Program from Johnson & Johnson, one of our largest and longest serving corporate partners, to help with this integral area of our work around child safeguarding. As the world’s leading independent organisation for children, this will not only go towards reinforcing our vision of a world in which every child attains the right to survival, protection, development and participation; but help bring our values to life

Building the Front Lines of Care for the Resiliency of Refugee Children

At least three million children in Syria have grown up knowing nothing but war. In a recent survey conducted by Save the Children inside Syria, two thirds of the children reported that they have experienced their house being bombed, suffered from war-related injuries, or lost a loved one from the war – an experience that much fewer American or European children are familiar with.
