Non-Profit Partner: Save the Children
It is with great pleasure and excitement that we announce Save the Children as the non-profit partner for this year’s Yale Model United Nations Conference. Save the Children’s commitment to providing healthcare for children in disease-stricken areas, access to a basic level of education, and protection from child trafficking and exploitation has been realized in over 120 countries, in which their efforts have reached over 155 million children.
Whether delivering vital food stuffs to 2.7 million Syrian children in refugee camps, educating nearly 7000 Congolese teen girls about reproductive health and gender equality, or providing sanitary and hygienic relief for Rohingya refugee children who fled to Bangladesh, Save the Children has been at the forefront of combating juvenile suffering in many of the world’s most vicious humanitarian conflicts.
Throughout our conference, Save the Children will be interactively engaging with groups of delegates in various formats to show them both the importance of their work and the true merits of humanitarianism. In keeping to YMUN’s mantra, “Learn today, lead tomorrow,” Save the Children’s partnership with Yale’s Model UN conference represents a joint commitment to providing all children with the tools necessary to “lead tomorrow.”
