Kurdistan Save the Children is a non-profit, non-political and non-sectarian organisation, established in 199, that provides assistance to children regardless of race, gender, political or religious affiliation.

Child protection in all its aspects is one of KSC’s principle goals. We always work for the benefit of children, and with their best interests in mind. In the Child Protection sector, there are two main programs to help and support children who find themselves either living or working on the streets, or in conflict with law.
The Street Children program aims to keep children off the streets, and do everything possible to reunite them with their families. We encourage them return to school, or if they are over school age, we help them to start a training or try to find a job.
The Juvenile Justice program provides children and teenagers, who find themselves in trouble with the law, with free legal consultation and then supports them through the legal process. We also help them reintegrate into society; particularly the ones who have been in detention. KSC works closely with the related social institutions and seeks constantly to improve and develop the legal system for the benefit of children.
