DID YOU KNOW THAT: over 30 wars and conflicts rage around the world. Many of these wars go unreported, often due to political expediency or lack of interest.


War Child International implements projects in Afghanistan, Burundi, Chechnya, Colombia, DR Congo, Ethiopia, Iraq, Israel, Kosovo, Lebanon, Liberia, Sierra Leone, Sri Lanka, Sudan, Uganda, West Bank and Gaza according to the following themes:

  • Child protection: to protect children and young people against the consequences of armed conflict.
  • Education: to enable children and young people's access to education.
  • Justice: to ensure children and young people's access to justice when their rights are violated.
  • Livelihoods: to build sustainable local livelihoods that address children and young people's fundamental needs.
  • Psychosocial: to stimulate children and young people's own psychological and social development.

Since its founding, War Child has achieved many successes. Hundreds of thousands of children have been reached with War Child programs in a large number of warzones around the world. Our independent country offices have grown into professional aid organisations, with both highly effective implementation of projects as well as co-funding grassroots organisations in countries stricken by war and conflict. We have also raised awareness for the effects war can have on children, among the public and collegue aid organisations.
