About War Child UK

War Child supports and protects children whose lives have been disrupted by war and conflict. Our programmes are rebuilding lives across Afghanistan, Iraq, Jordan, Uganda, the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) and Central African Republic. We understand children’s needs, respect their rights, and put them at the centre of the solution – from supporting Syrian children to access education, to reintegrating child soldiers in the Central African Republic and enabling girls to escape life on the streets in the DRC. In 2015 we supported 125,000 children affected by war.


Our education programmes focus on the most marginalised children — helping them to deal with the traumas of armed conflict, equipping them with the skills and knowledge to go back to school, and providing training to young people so they can support themselves. War Child’s is delivering highly innovative programming for Education in Emergencies, including our ‘Can’t Wait to Learn’ tablet learning programme.
