Looking ahead, communications and fundraising

In 2008, War Child wishes to further intensify its growth. There are still many conflict areas where children really need War Child's help. In the field, War Child has the ability and ambition to grow, in order to help other children. To achieve this, income from the general public in the Netherlands, the largest source of War Child's income, will need to grow. The involvement and growth of this support from the Netherlands must be enlarged through clear and transparent communication on the situation of children living in war-affected areas and the work that War Child does.

The focus in 2008 will be on the issue of child soldiers and we will offer tangible and concrete ways to provide support. Another priority will be to establish a long-term relationship with supporters of War Child, by developing measures that closely match the wishes and communication needs of the organisation's backing. For this purpose, War Child will research their wishes and communication needs, in order to further improve this association.
