In the new policy at the U.K. based firm, both parents will be entitled to the 12-week-long leave after birth or adoption.

The move makes it one of the most generous in U.K’s charity sector according to a survey by My Family Care as most organizations don’t guarantee full pay for maternity and paternity leaves.

Save the Children was founded with the aim of improving the lives of children through better healthcare, education and economic opportunities. The nonprofit organization also provides emergency aid to victims of natural disasters and conflicts all over the world.

In Kenya, the law provides for a three-month and a two-week paid maternity and paternity leave respectively. In the U.K., employees must take at least 2 weeks leave after childbirth.
