About

War Child Canada protects children and families affected by war. In the most dangerous corners of the world, War Child is rebuilding war-affected communities and providing the support necessary for children to experience a stable childhood.

When war itself ends, the consequences endure. A lack of employment opportunities, the absence of effective economic or social structures, a destroyed infrastructure, an under-educated population and a culture of impunity around rights violations combine to create conditions that make a return to conflict all too possible.

But, by making a long-term investment in war-affected communities, the support structures for a healthy childhood can be rebuilt and the cycle of violence can be broken.

UN Sustainable Development Goals

  • No poverty

    The goal of all of our programs is to help individuals and communities rise out of poverty by equipping them with the support, skills and knowledge to become self-sufficient. Activities include cash assistance, training in basic literacy and numeracy, financial literacy, business development skills and vocational training.

  • Zero hunger

    Food security is a major element of our programming, as conflict can lead to food shortages in even the most fertile countries. We support farmers in areas affected by conflict - and those returning from displacement – helping them to get back on their feet by providing them with seeds, tools, and livestock. We provide training in harvest management and animal husbandry, and we build and restore markets, so that our beneficiaries can sell their crops and produce.

  • Good health and well-being

    In conflict and post-conflict areas, it is challenging to maintain good physical or mental health. Each of our programs includes a core focus on personal well-being. Our education programs train teachers to ensure classrooms are supportive spaces for social and emotional well-being. Our legal teams work with women from the most marginalized communities to protect them and reassure them of their rights. And we establish safe spaces where children receive counselling and women psychosocial support.

  • Quality education

    Access to education is central to our programming in every country of operation. We rebuild or repair classrooms, provide school furnishings and supplies, give children school kits, train teachers and develop innovative curriculum. For children who have been displaced and missed months or years of school, we run catch-up learning classes, so they can make up lost time and rejoin their peers in the formal education system.

  • Gender equality

    Gender equality is a theme that runs throughout our programming. In our education work, we emphasize the importance of girls’ attendance and retention, and create programming that is aimed directly at girls. We provide training for women to give them the skills and opportunity to start their own businesses. And our legal programming ensures that women and girls enjoy the same rights as men and boys.

  • Decent work and economic growth

    We work to support the livelihoods of families in the most marginalized communities. We provide farming communities with seeds, tools and training on harvest management, and help establish markets to sell their crops. We provide young people with skills that are marketable in their communities, such as masonry, car mechanics and hair styling. And we train women in literacy, numeracy and business skills and provide microloans so that they can open their own businesses.

  • Peace, justice and strong institutions

    War Child Canada is a registered law firm in Uganda and in Afghanistan. Our work provides a range of legal support including mobile legal clinics, legal advice, representation in court, training of legal actors, support with alternative dispute resolution. Our focus is the prevention of sexual and gender-based violence, and an end to impunity for the perpetrators.

Your Miles can help War Child's Famine Response in South Sudan

Food is not a luxury. It is a right of every human being. And yet it is a right that is being denied the people of South Sudan. On February 20th, the UN declared a state of famine in South Sudan. This is not a declaration made lightly. A famine has an official definition based on...

Without you, Jennifer may never have been able to come share her story

We believe, as I’m sure you do too, that aid work overseas should be stable and long lasting. That’s one reason the majority of our overseas team work in the communities where they were born and still live. If there is one downside to this, it’s that most of them will never...
