Who we are

What we stand for

Wherever we work, we are guided by our values and are committed to reaching those who need us most, when they need us most.

At War Child we are driven by a single goal - ensuring a safe future for every child living through war.   

We work to protect, educate and stand up for the rights of children living through conflict and go to the hardest to reach places to support them.

We aim to be there for children who need us most, when they need us most because no child's life should be torn apart by war. 

Wherever we work, we are guided by the following values:

Accountable to children

The safety and security of the children, communities, and staff we work with and support is our top priority. We make sure that children can rely on us to listen to what they have to say and treat them with respect and dignity.




Our passion, bravery and creativity allow us to deliver high-quality projects with the maximum benefits for children living in conflict.
