Together, we can

Build a world where all youth are safe

Our Background

Somali Safe Child Right Volunteers Commonly known by the acronym “SSCRV” is a multifaceted non-governmental, non-profit making, non- political and non-partisan organization established in 2015 and headquartered in Kismayo, Jubaland State of Somalia. SSCRV stands for the protection of the rights of Somali children while empowering them through advocacy, psychosocial support, sensitization, community outreaches, networking, educational support, and livelihood support of their families.

What we do

Child protection/GBV

Formation and training of child protection committees, community dialogue meetings, and support to community led initiatives on child protection, translation of key legal and policy documents into local languages, data collection on violation of children’s rights and supporting formal education for Orphans and Vulnerable Children in Northern Somalia.

Livelihoods Support

Provision of sustainable and profitable means of livelihoods, training of Income Generating Activities and financial management, support to Orphans and Vulnerable Children (OVCs’) to attain vocational skills and provision of basic start up tool kits to beneficiaries War affected children in the community.

Emergency and relief

Provision of food aid, training in food security and agricultural rehabilitation to formerly displaced returnees, people affected by drought.


This is a cross-cutting activity in all the programmes of SSCR. It is an integrated activity. CCYA is supporting 20 orphans and vulnerable children by provision of scholastic materials, school fees and basic materials. We are getting a very big challenge in terms of funding considering the level of poverty resulting from the 20-year war. There are many OVCs that need support but the financial capacity of CCYA can not support beyond the 20 beneficiaries.

Health services

SSCRV has always played an important role in health promotion aimed at improving access to health to Orphans and Vulnerable Children (OVCs’). Connects low-income families with basic resources that can benefit their Overall health and well-being.

Nutrition Services

SSCRV aims to transform the lives of people particularly men, women, girls and children – by improving their nutrition and works to end hunger through the administration of nutrition services programs, and school meals. We need to break down silos, disrupt the status quo, and put the people we serve and the challenges they face at the centre of all we do.
