Save the Children is very pleased to invite you to join our webinar

The impacts of COVID-19 on Children's Lives and insights into the programmatic work of Save the Children.

During this webinar you have the possibility to learn about the findings of the recently released report “Protect a Generation” and about our engagement for children the most in need around the world. With this global pandemic, children have missed out on access to education, healthcare, food, and suffered considerable protection risks.

We will shed light on the main findings of the report, for which more than 25,000 children and caregivers around the world have added their voice. Furthermore, two of our experts will focus on the need to advocate for increased access to education for every single child and on the specificities and challenges children face in urban settings, with a quest for more inclusive, safe, sustainable and resilient cities.
