War Child is an independent and impartial, international nongovernmental organisation investing in a peaceful future for children and young people affected by armed conflict. Children need to be protected from violence. By using creative and involving workshops we unleash the children's inner strength. That is our mission. We work with children regardless of their religion, ethnicity, social background, or gender.
Our work is based on the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child. We implement programmes in Africa, Asia, the Middle East, South America, and Europe. Our head office is located in the Netherlands. Go to where we work for an complete overview. We are part of War Child International.
War Child is constantly aware of and working on being accountable to key stakeholders.
