War Child Mission Statement:
We are the small ones that dare to dream big.
War Child has a dream that every child lives in peace.
We believe that no child should be part of war. Ever.
And we are daring enough to believe dreams can come true.
We know that war has a power that can make or break you.
War doesn’t have to be the only thing defining you or the next generations.
We dream that the need for War Child won’t exist anymore.
Yet, as long as there is war, there will be a need for War Child to help.
Supporting children to keep their hope in the darkest moments of their lives.
Inspiring them to remember their joy, happiness, and freedom.
We may never be able to take away all the pain that comes with war.
But we can create space, where children heal.
We believe in the power of listening, empathy and consolation to save children’s lives
We believe in conversation and learning.
In music and play.
In giving hope.
But we don’t believe in anything blindly.
We test our beliefs and practices rigorously.
Putting into action what works.
We know that even if we can get the child out of the war, it takes daily acts of heroism to take the war out of the child.
Truth is, there are many more children in need than War Child alone can support.
We know that we can’t do this on our own.
Our deep desire is to share our passion, knowledge and actions.
And to do this right, we need each other.
Because no child should be part of war. Ever.
Our dream is that all children can live the life they want.
Free to play. Free to grow. Free to be.
