In 2016 War Child made a difference in the lives of 381,830 children and young people forced to grow up with the effects of violent conflict.
War Child works to ensure that children affected by conflict and violence can realise their fundamental rights and build a better future - both for themselves and their communities.

War Child works to improve the psychosocial well-being of children affected by conflict. We collaborate with organisations across the world to ensure that our work has maximum impact. We intend to reach one million children annually through our programmes - and millions more through our networks.
War Child works to achieve excellence, quality and enhanced impact in everything we do - both at head office and in the fourteen counties in which we are active. Our programmes, methodologies and fundraising activities are all designed to deliver meaningful positive change in the lives of conflict-affected children.
War Child empowers children to shape their own future, as we unleash their inner strength by using our creative and engaging approach.
We provide protection, psychosocial support and education to children affected by conflict. Together with partners, caregivers and communities, we improve both the resilience and well-being of these children. With our evidence-based interventions we are the expert in our field, while we inspire our partners and host countries to expand our interventions. Together, we create lasting impact in order to reach as many children as we can.
War Child has developed a Theory of Change (ToC) which guides the development and implementation of a comprehensive care system for conflict-affected children in the countries where we work. Our R&D activities help us to build the necessary evidence to improve our interventions and significantly increase the scale of our impact.
War Child works to deliver a positive, lasting impact on the lives of children and young people in areas of conflict. We operate programmes in fourteen countries that combine protection, education and psychosocial support to achieve enhanced impact. Our goal is to improve the psychosocial well-being of conflict-affected children wherever we can.
Our Marketing, Communications and Fundraising (MCF) activities all support our mission to create a global movement for peaceful futures for children affected by war and conflict. We work to inspire increasing numbers of people and organisations to participate in our mission - in any way they can.
Children in conflict-affected areas are more resilient and enjoy increased psychosocial wellbeing. Children grow up in peace, free from fear and violence.
