Because no child should be part of war! Ever!
Following the recent devastating, intense conflicts in the Middle East and in the Ukraine, the number of children worldwide affected by war and violence is reaching new highs – and the available funds to meet their needs are nowhere near enough. The nature of armed conflict is becoming increasingly unpredictable. And the challenges we face as an organisation are growing in scale and complexity.
War Child reaches many thousands of children and youth every year – yet there are a record 230 million children living directly with the effects of violence and armed conflict. We will never reach them all by ourselves – which is why our strategic goal is to become the networked expert organisation for children affected by conflict.
Networked: This strategy sees us work together with organisations across the world to ensure our work has maximum reach and impact.
Expert: We continue to develop robust interventions – backed by evidence and research to meet the highest standards of quality – and share them through a network of partner organisations.
These two key strategic ambitions will see us reach increasing numbers of children every year with evidence-based interventions relevant to their needs – all delivered through a global network of local and international organisations.
Our overall goal is that increasing numbers of children and youth will access quality interventions – incorporating vital child protection, education and psychosocial support – and as a result enjoy improved psychosocial wellbeing.
