Programme developments 2014
In 2014 War Child will intensify its project activities in the most conflict affected areas of the countries in which we work, focusing on children and communities directly affected by conflict violence. While we will scale-up the intensity and quality of our projects, we will scale down our overall reach. We will phase out our operations in Thailand along the Myanmar border for budgetary reasons, we will scale down our programme in Sudan due to accessibility constraints and, in Afghanistan we will merge our programme with that of War Child UK.
By expanding and improving our projects in Lebanon, South Sudan and in DR Congo, we hope to increase our impact and efficiency. At the same time, we will increase regional exchange and cooperation between country programmes, especially between the smaller country teams and between head office and country offices. This exchange will improve the overall quality of our programming, projects, and financial management and enhance the replication of best practices and context specific practices.
For crises involving several countries (such as the Syrian crisis) we will work to develop regional approaches, including coordination with the other War Child affiliates. Although development of new innovative projects and activities using ICT and Media will remain high on the agenda, we will also look to replicate and standardise our core intervention models.
In 2014 we will continue to improve our programming and our attention to reaching and objectively measuring the outcomes we achieve with and for children. All countries will engage in outcome monitoring, report their successes and failures, and conduct external evaluations, and we will work to incorporate learning into our programming on a more structural basis.
