Save the Children executive discusses whether NGOs have failed to change the lives of young children in conflict zones.
According to the United Nations, last year there was an “increasing number of crimes” against children in conflict zones, although over the years, NGOs have encouraged one another for decades.
One of the organizations working to improve the lives of children is Save the Children. Their eldest son, Inger Ashing, recently traveled to Burkina Faso where many children living in the Central Sahel are at risk of being recruited by the military.
But for many helpless people, NGOs have failed to make significant changes in their lives.
So are we failing to protect vulnerable children? Inger Ashing, CEO of Save the Children, talks to Al Jazeera.
