About Children in Conflict

Children in Conflict believe in providing the vital protection, education, and hope children need to restore some stability when their world has been disrupted by war.

Working through our partners, War Child UK, Children in Conflict provides support in seven conflict affected countries across Africa, Asia, and the Middle East. We have one shared mission; to protect, educate and stand up for the rights of children in war.


Children in Conflict supports the delivery of programs that reach children as early as possible when conflict breaks out, and stays to support them through their recovery – helping to keep them safe, give them an education, and equip them with skills for the future.

Together with War Child UK, Children in Conflict understands children’s needs, respects their rights, and puts them at the center of the solution - from supporting Syrian children's access to education, to reintegrating child soldiers in the Central African Republic and promoting justice for young people in detention in Afghanistan.

Children in Conflict also supports work with children and young people to change the systems and practices that affect them, campaigning on the root causes of conflict and demanding that children are at the center of any humanitarian response.
