Child Poverty Reduction Program

The Child Poverty Reduction Program provides members of target households with the economic opportunities and skills they need to meet their children’s basic needs of health, nutrition, education, and protection. The program has three focus areas:

  • Successful transition of youth: improving young people’s skills to work in a decent job in the future
  • Supporting vulnerable families and children to meet their basic needs
  • Introducing small pilot projects and initiatives to improve household livelihoods and food security

Save the Children has organized the Youth Entrepreneurship Challenge every year since 2017 in cooperation with the Development Solutions NGO to increase the entrepreneurial skills of young people. It is the first competition to be held in English, and according to international standards.
Within the Child Poverty Program, Save the Children implements Entrepreneurship-Focused Socio-Emotional Skills For The Most Vulnerable Youth In Rural Mongolia project in 25 soums of Khovd, Zavkhan, Uvurkhangai, Govi-Sumber, Sukhbaatar provinces of Mongolia since 2020.
