Gaming has the power to transform lives. 

Since 2006, we have been collaborating with the gaming industry to make the greatest impact on the lives of children affected by conflict.

Whether it’s helping Iraqi children to access education, reintegrating children formerly associated with armed groups in the Central African Republic or reuniting children with their families in Afghanistan. 

With the generous support of developers, studios, streamers and the wider gaming community, we have been able to raise over £5 million for our cause to date.
