About US:

War Child Canada is
an internationally recognized charity organization registered in Toronto,
Canada that works with war-affected communities to help children reclaim their
childhood through access to education, opportunity and justice. War Child
Canada takes an active role in raising public awareness around the impact of
war on communities and the shared responsibility to act. When war itself ends,
the consequences endure. A lack of employment opportunities, the absence of
effective economic or social structures, an under-educated population and a
culture of impunity around rights violations combine to create conditions that
make a return to conflict all too possible. But by making a long-term
investment to create an environment in which childhood can thrive, the cycle of
violence can be broken.
