About Us

War Child Canada is a registered Canadian charity based in Toronto. 

War Child Canada works with war-affected communities to help children reclaim their childhood through access to education, opportunity and justice. War Child Canada takes an active role in raising public awareness around the impact of war on communities and the shared responsibility to act.

When war itself ends, the consequences endure. A lack of employment opportunities, the absence of effective economic or social structures, 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 to create an environment in which childhood can thrive, the cycle of violence can be broken.

War Child Canada currently works in Afghanistan, Sudan, South Sudan, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Jordan and Uganda. In South Sudan, War Child Canada is operational in Upper Nile State, Eastern Equatoria State and is expanding to Western Bar el Gazal State.
