It is to reach children like Bopha – the most remote, the most vulnerable to shocks, and the poorest of the poor – that Save the Children is launching a new campaign, Every Last Child, to advocate for the extension of healthcare and education services to the most rural and remote areas.
“To overcome this issue, Save the Children supports children to raise their voices and demand what they need from their government, communities and families,” explains Elizabeth Pearce, Save the Children’s Country Director. “This project will directly involve children and youth in shaping decision making processes that affect them, through improving governance, accountability, inclusiveness and respect for children’s rights.”
Save the Children and its partners launched an integrated stunting prevention campaign today in Battambang, Pursat and Siem Reap provinces as part of the USAID-funded NOURISH Project.
