The Germany-based non-profit organization Save the Children Deutschland introduced their regional child advisor, Ranjan Weththasinghe, and recognised his efforts to support his family early on.

Reportedly, Save the Children Deutschland is a non-profit organisation in Germany that aims to serve the lives of Vulnerable and weaker sections of society. It is a global membership organisation, which is made up of Save the Children International and 30 national members.

The Save the Children Deutschland’s ambition for 2030 is to create a world in which all children are survived, learned, and protected.

With around 25,000 dedicated staff across more than 1,500 countries, the organisation aims to respond to major emergencies, deliver innovative development programmes, and ensure children’s voices are heard through their campaigning to build a better future for and with children.

Recently, the Save the Children Deutschland came across in contact with Ranjan Weththasinghe. Today, he works as a regional child rights advisor for their organisation.

At 12 or 13, Ranjan began working in agriculture and mining alongside the school to support the family business. He was struggling to graduate and was struggling big at home.

Thanks to a partner organization financed by Save the Children, he broke up with children’s rights and quickly became active. He was passionate about the rights of both adults and children.

Since 2007, he has been an employee of Save the Children and works closely with government decision-makers in Sri Lanka to shape national policy and improve the lives of thousands of children.

Save the Children Deutschland Organisation recognised his efforts and hard work as a volunteer in their team. They are also delighted to be able to support children from all over the world for over 100 years – and that some of them accompany them into adulthood.
