War Child is striving for a world with no child’s life torn apart by conflict. War Child protects, educates, and stands up for the rights of children caught up in conflict. The charity aims to 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.

From its beginnings, War Child has been well respected in the music industry, delivering credible events and albums with outstanding artists, producers, and musicians. War Child has a wealth of experience working with the biggest names including Coldplay, Adele, Muse, Blur, Ed Sheeran, Jamie XX, Biffy Clyro and Kasabian.

War Child’s partnership with The Great Escape will support work with Syrian children to access education, reintegrating child soldiers in the Central African Republic and promoting justice for young people in detention in Afghanistan. Work Child, together with its partners, works in 15 countries across Africa, Asia and the Middle East, and Latin America.
