War Child believes that children themselves should play a central role not only in shaping our programming, but also in decision-making in their families, schools, communities and government. War Child empowers children and young people to express their views and encourages the adults around them to take those views seriously, including our staff and partner organisations. In this way, children can influence decision-making that affects them and realise changes in their lives.
Change through child participation
War Child strongly believes that the meaningful participation of children and young people is crucial in achieving positive change. Children are the experts on their own lives, and have a role to play in bringing about the change they want to see. By involving children and encouraging adults to take their views into account, we empower them to unleash their inner strength and make a positive contribution to rebuilding their communities. Children are War Child’s main target group. We make every effort to facilitate their participation in every aspect of our programming because our responsibility is, first and foremost, to children.
