Where We Work

COMMUNITY SOLUTIONS

At the very core of War Child’s overseas programming is the belief that for a community to experience a robust recovery following conflict, the community itself must drive the process. War Child’s role is as a facilitator and capacity builder. We can help individuals improve their skills to better access opportunities for personal growth. This is not only for those young people who attend our programs but also our staff overseas, 95% of whom are recruited from the community.
