War Child International

War Child International is a network of independent humanitarian organisations which work together to help children and young people affected by armed conflict. They seek to complement the work of each organisations in a way that maximizes their collective efforts for the benefit of children and young people. War Child International exists to create the conditions that will fulfill the protection, development and survival rights for children and young people who are living with or recovering from the effects of armed conflict. War Child works in many different conflict areas around the world, helping hundreds of thousands of children every year. War Child International currently consists of three offices: War Child Holland, War Child North America and War Child UK. Although sharing the same aims and goals, the three organisations are totally autonomous, with independent trustees and financial coordination. What They Do 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. The War Child organisations run their own projects, but also work in partnership with local grass roots organisations, through both short-term emergency relief and long-term rehabilitation programs, to improve the living conditions of war-affected children.
