International networks

In addition to partner organisations with which War Child collaborates to implement our projects, we also have a wide range of national and international organisations with which we collaborate to:

  • exchange knowledge, experiences and learning, particularly in the key content areas of our work;
  • develop common international guidelines, standards, etc., to improve the quality of our work;
  • position ourselves internationally and stay up to date with international developments in the sector.
