Save the Children is the world's leading independent organization for children. Its vision is a world in which every child attains the right to survival, protection, development and participation. Its mission is to inspire breakthroughs in the way the world treats children and to achieve immediate and lasting change in their lives.
Save the children focus on several areas:
For more than a decade, Save the Children has been protecting children from abuse, neglect, exploitation and violence in all regions of the world. Its programs focus on the most vulnerable children while aiming for the safety and well-being of all children.
Education and Child Development:
Education is vital to lasting positive change in children's lives. Yet for millions of children and youth in developing countries, education is beyond grasp. Save the Children reaches the world's most marginalized children - those who urgently need education to survive and thrive in more than 30 countries around the world.
Health and Nutrition:
Save the Children works to ensure that children, their mothers and other caregivers have access to and use key health and nutrition services, as well as adopt healthy behaviors in both development and emergency situations. They use evidence-based interventions to address the major causes of illness, death and malnutrition, and continue to develop innovative strategies to deliver these services most effectively to as many people as possible, especially in resource-poor and emergency situations.
Save the Children works with vulnerable families in 27 countries to help ensure that they can afford to pay for basic needs and services for their children and provide access to sufficient, nutritious food all year round. They also offer assistance when shocks, such as rising food prices or natural or man-made disasters, threaten to devastate families.
Save the Children's presence in Indonesia spans some three decades - dating back to 1976. Overtime, Save the Children has grown enormously in the country and today they operate in 14 provinces across Indonesia. Their program approach now brings long term and sustainable benefits to more Indonesian children and they work to establish effective, self-sustaining approaches to issues related to child protection, health, education, livelihoods, emergency response and disaster risk reduction. Save the Children partners with children, communities, local organizations and the government of Indonesia to transform the lives of Indonesian children and their families.
AIESEC is the world's largest youth-student organization. It provides a platform for youth leadership development and offers young people the opportunity to participate in international internships, experience leadership and participate in a global learning environment. What makes AIESEC unique is the youth driven impactful experience that it offers to its members.
AIESEC enables young people to explore and develop their leadership potential through what it calls an AIESEC Experience:
Global Community Development Program:
International internships are the most intense learning experience it offers and links together AIESEC's global network. This program encompasses cross-cultural positive impact through working abroad for social and community development projects that lead to self-development and skill enhancement for the members undertaking the program.
Team Leader Program:
This experience will culminate in your personal and professional development through the concept of team building and management. Participants experience leading other members and guiding them in their work, thus becoming a crucial part of their development.
Team Member Program:
It is one of the most crucial ways in which participants can start on their path toward leadership development. In this phase, participants will be introduced to a practical team experience, gain access to a global network and engage in practical hard skills development through a teamwork experience.
Global Internship Program:
This program offers internships that contribute to the professional development of a member and assist them to specialize in a certain field of work. They are normally long term in nature and involve working on diverse business projects and organizations.
