Guidance and Capacity Building: Linking Humanitarian Cash & Voucher Assistance with Child Sensitive Social Protection.

Save the Children is a rights-based organization, which delivers both humanitarian and development programming including influencing and supporting duty-bearers such as governments to ensure children’s rights are upheld and needs are met. Save the Children has been a pioneer and lead organisation in emergency cash-based programmes and has been influencing changes in government social protection programmes and systems for many years.

Being a leading global actor that works across the traditional “humanitarian-development” divide (“Nexus”), Save the Children is seeking to improve the coherence and build synergies between Humanitarian Cash and Voucher Assistance (HCVA) and Child Sensitive Social Protection (CSSP) work.

In 2021, Save the Children established a Task Team which conducted a literature review and drafted a toolkit aimed at providing programmatic guidance on “Linking Humanitarian CVA with Child Sensitive Social Protection”.
