War Child achieves tangible impact through social activation of all stakeholders

Tangible impact

To assess the impact of War Child’s DEALS-methodology, research was conducted in 2012 in Colombia and South Sudan. Approximately 200 children participated in evaluations of War Child’s IDEAL programme in these countries. Besides this research, the first results of outcome measurement, a system implemented in 2011, became available.

Social activation

Activities with children in South SudanWar Child socially activates people on different levels. First, we were able to involve and activate 483,000 children and adults surrounding them in the areas affected by armed conflict, In the Netherlands our constituency remained stable at approximately 120,000 individual donors and corporate sponsors. Friends and followers on social media grew significantly. In 2012, War Child especially focused on increased collaboration with partners. Partners who support us with institutional funds, partners with whom we implement projects, partners and networks we share expertise with and corporate partners who fulfil their Corporate Social Responsibility strategy by supporting War Child. Further in this report there’s an overview of our most important corporate partners.

Lessons learned

War Child should increasingly look for pro-active collaboration with partners, beyond the mere objective of fundraising. This will be part of War Child’s annual plan 2013.

By partnering with others more, War Child will be able to expand its presence and strengthen its position as a technical expert on psychosocial support, education and protection for children affected by war. This will raise War Child’s relevance and presence in the field. A prerequisite for successful partnerships is to safeguard the added value and impact of War Child programmes.
