War Child Issues Collaboration Call
April 29, 2019
Amsterdam, the Netherlands
Our R&D team is working to develop a holistic Care System made up of evidence-based intervention models. This system will increase access to integrated education, protection and psychosocial support for children and communities living with the effects of armed conflict.
Innovation is a key driver of this Care System. New interventions and approaches are urgently required to meet the increasingly complex challenges facing conflict-affected children. And that’s why War Child is taking part in this year’s Call for Proposals issued by the Dutch Relief Alliance Innovation Fund (DIF).
The Dutch Relief Alliance (DRA) is a coalition of 16 Dutch NGOs supported by the Netherlands Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA). DRA member organisations - including War Child - have been invited to submit a project plan showcasing innovation and related to the themes ‘Safety’ and ‘Protection’.
War Child is looking to build multi-disciplinary teams of expert practitioners with experience that could contribute to the further development of three of the interventions and enabling trajectories that make up our Care System.
The three proposals are related to stigma reduction, entry to care and community-driven child protection. More information is available in the proposal briefs - which are available to download below.
Do you have expertise that could contribute to the further development of these interventions and trajectories? Get in touch with your ideas before May 9 to sign up for our brainstorm session - scheduled for the afternoon of either 20, 21 or 22 May (depending on availability). The sessions will be held in the War Child office in Amsterdam.
