No child in war

Programming lines

We don't do the work, we only facilitate. Children themselves are empowered to build their resilience, protect themselves and their peers, and claim their rights. By providing skills, knowledge and opportunity.

Our Approach

Children define their own future. They use their creativity to cope with adversity and to shape their lives. Never on the sideline, but as active participants. Children have a real say in decision-making.

Accountability

Share, involve, evaluate and be transparent. War Child is constantly improving its accountablity. To partners, donors and sponsor. But foremost: to children.

The impact of conflict on children

When a war sweeps through a child’s life, it can have devastating effects. Children and young people witness or even actively participate in violence, often against their will. During armed conflict many children and young people live in IDP or refugee camps, experience the loss of relatives, and lack structure and daily activities.

Work for War Child

Working for War Child means working for the wellbeing of children in conflict-affected areas, whether in the field, at head office, as a volunteer, or as an intern.

Partners

We cannot achieve our results by ourselves. With the support of local, national and international organisations, ministries and donors we can change the future.

Latest Publications

To create awareness on the plight of children and young people in armed conflict, War Child regulalry publishes reports, stories and news letters. Help us to spread the word.
