Our Mission

We protect, educate and provide hope for children caught up in conflict.

Our Vision

Our vision is a world where no child’s life is torn apart by war.

Who We Are

Children in Conflict was established in 2017 and is a partner of War Child UK. War Child UK was founded in 1993 with the mission to protect, educate and stand up for the rights of children caught up in war. Children in Conflict broadens War Child UK’s global imprint by building new partnerships and increasing awareness in the US about the critical humanitarian assistance War Child UK provides to children in conflict zones. War Child UK’s programs and geographic focus have evolved throughout its history to meet the most pressing needs of the global community. 

Children in Conflict share War Child UK's belief that it is unacceptable that any child’s life is destroyed by war. All too often, children are injured or see their physical, mental and educational development hindered. Through this partnership, Children in Conflict and War Child UK provide the vital production, education and hope children need to restore some normalcy when their world has been turned upside down by conflict. Together we help to restore childhood and reestablish a child's ability to build a better future for themselves. 


Children in Conflict is made up of a small team based in New York City.
