This website will tell you more about War Child and how we operate. We’re committed to running the charity in an open and transparent way so that we remain fully accountable to the children we serve and to the generous supporters we rely upon. We’ll take you on a journey through six aspects of our work in order to demonstrate how and why giving us an ‘unrestricted’ gift is such an excellent investment in our growth. Not only will it enable us to achieve our immediate aim of reaching 260,000 children by 2019, it will contribute to our long-term ambition of reaching 1 million children every year.
You’ll get a unique look behind the scenes of the charity and, when used in conjunction with our Impact Multiplier tool, you’ll see exactly how and where we’ll invest your donation.
Children don’t start wars.
But their lives are torn apart by them. By conflicts they don’t understand and never chose to be a part of.
Watching the news can leave us all feeling a bit helpless. Across the globe millions of children are left traumatised, orphaned or abandoned. Their homes, families, communities, schools and hospitals have been destroyed. Many have been sexually abused or seen things that no child should ever have to witness.
We’re not daunted by the problem, we’re determined to be a part of the solution.
There are millions of children who urgently need our help.
That’s why we need yours.
Our ambition for the future is that every child living in conflict is safe and has an education.
In 2016 we reached over 109,000 children. Over the next three years we will strive to increase the scale of our work and more than double the amount of children we reach. We want to:
- Directly benefit 260,000 children, young people and their families in 2019
- Improve life for the children we can’t reach, by advocating for changes which will help all children, inside and outside of our projects
- Increase our impact by developing innovative solutions to protection and education challenges
By investing in our growth you’re investing in children’s futures.
You can be a vital bridge between where we are now and where we need to get to. By supporting our growth, the impact of your donation can be multiplied. We’re excited to show you the significant ‘returns’ we can make on your investment, and we’ll go into more detail on these in the Fundraising section of this site.
It’s a big journey but we want to do it the right way – by building our growth on strong and sustainable financial and organisational foundations. Our strategy maps out that journey and it ensures that we deliver a top quality, value for money service to our beneficiaries and our donors.
You can help to protect and rebuild them.
