War Child Global
The War Child family is made up of four implementing organisations - in the Netherlands, UK, Canada and Sweden - as well as fundraising offices in the United States, Australia, Ireland and Germany.
The War Child Global initiative sees the four implementing organisations move towards closer cooperation - in particular War Child Holland and War Child UK. The beginning of 2018 saw the two organisations sign an agreement which outlines how each will work together under a ‘lead agency’ model. A shared set of fifteen standards to guide the operations of the two organisations were also developed.
What this means is that in each conflict-affected country or geographic area one single agency will implement programmes on behalf of both organisations - and that the organisations will fund each other’s activities accordingly.
Both these strategic initiatives will contribute to increased efficiency and effectiveness - and greater support for children and youth living with the effects of violence and armed conflict.
