Programme developments

In 2013 War Child will expand activities in most of the countries where we have already been present for a number of years. We will explore how we can increase the exchange and sharing of staff and expertise, especially between the smaller country teams in the Middle East and Asia. Regional exchange and cooperation will provide for the wider availability of expertise, like programming and finance, while replication of best practices and context specific practices will likely be enhanced. For crises that involve several countries (like Syria and the Syrian refugees) we will work on regional approaches, also including coordination with the other War Child affiliates.

Children in Uganda filming their own diaries Development of new innovative projects and activities with use of ICT and Media will remain high on the agenda. At the same time, there will be a focus on learning from the existing innovative pilot projects so they can be either scaled-up or be cancelled.

In 2013 improving our programmes to increase our reach and outcomes for children will get more attention. Outcome monitoring, reporting successes and failures, and external evaluations will be done in all field locations. Learning will be integrated in programming on a more structural basis.
