Prospect on the programme in Colombia

In 2008, War Child will continue working with its current partners in Colombia and select new partners. In order to support its growth, War Child will be looking for alternative sources of funding within the country. During 2008, partners and teachers will be trained in the use of creative means for improving the psychosocial wellbeing of children (I DEAL methodology). During the second semester, a PM&E workshop will be held. The partners' methods will be systematised and documented. This will result in a library of information that will facilitate exchanges among the partners.

Children's rights
In line with the country strategy, children's rights will increasingly serve as the basis for projects and awareness-raising activities. War Child will develop its advocacy strategy, increasingly take a position in debates on children's rights issues and present its ideas via various platforms.

Although change of staff at War Child does not affect the implementation of the projects by our partners, it creates disruption in the capability-building and programme development of the partners. In the future, the change of a War Child representative should therefore be anticipated in a way that ensures continuity.
