War Child UK want a world where no child’s life is torn apart by war. They protect, educate and stand up for the rights of children caught up in conflict. They aim to reach children as early as possible when conflict breaks out, and stay to support them through their recovery - helping to keep them safe, give them an education, and equip them with skills for the future.
By understanding children’s needs and respecting their rights - they can place them at the centre of the solution. They support Syrian children’s access to education, reintegrate child soldiers in the Central African Republic and promote justice for young people in detention in Afghanistan.
Working with children and young people they change systems and practices that affect them – campaigning on the root causes of conflict and demanding that children are at the centre of humanitarian response.
