Abstract: As an international network of 29 development and humanitarian-response member organizations, Save the Children has been using virtual platforms (VPs) to preserve and nurture knowledge throughout its network and programs in over 120 countries. This paper highlights three examples of VPs that Save the Children uses in its knowledge management and collaboration work: the Thought Cabinet, the Child Protection Working Group, and the Community Child Protection Exchange Forum. The author notes the importance of starting small, and growing organically in response to user needs and initiatives, as well as the challenges of internet connectivity and user capacity.
