Save the Children

For Citizen-led Assessments And Advocacy In Conflict-affected And Fragile States

Overview
Save the Children United States promotes the well-being of young children and their families around the world, especially the most vulnerable and disadvantaged. This grant will enable the organization to adapt and test the use of citizen-led learning assessments in difficult settings where good data on educational outcomes is currently lacking. With this grant, Save the Children will design an approach for young people whose education has been disrupted by conflict, displacement, or their status as refugees, to measure and raise awareness about the gaps in learning that they and other children experience. Save the Children will document this experience to promote and possibly replicate the use of citizen-generated data to track progress and hold host governments, international organizations such as the United Nations High Commission for Refugees, and donor agencies responsible for service delivery in emergencies accountable for commitments made under the new United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.
