War Child is an international child rights organization, focusing on education, protection and psychosocial support. We are committed to protecting and supporting children affected by armed conflict. We empower them to claim their rights, develop to their full potential and contribute to a peaceful future for themselves and their communities. Together we help children and young people make their voices heard. At the moment War Child is working in close to 20 different countries worldwide. The organization is recognized for its excellence in regards to combining an active research agenda with method development.
Together we take the war out of the child.

The Stockholm office was set up in 2016 and is covering the Nordics and the Baltic states. Besides the support to our global program we also focus on psychosocial support to newly arrived youth, in a way to ease their integration into Swedish society. This part of our work is currently scaled up.

The team at the office in Stockholm consists of five dedicated and specialized people, plus temporary staff. As a decentralized organization the team maintains close links with the team in Amsterdam where many of the international functions are located as well as the offices spread around the world.

No child should be part of war. Ever.

The Zelmerlöw & Björkman Foundation is a fund-raising foundation that strengthens young people living in vulnerability in Kenya all the way from exclusion and poverty to work and livelihood. This happens primarily through education and entrepreneurship. It is a human right to go to school, yet there are over 138 million young people worldwide who do not do so today. We know that education is the way out of poverty and vulnerability, therefore we work to make education accessible to more people. We are a small organization with a couple of employees and a bunch of dedicated volunteers at our office on Artillerigatan in Stockholm. Together with local partners, we identify young people living in extreme vulnerability in Kenya. We offer high school education, accommodation in a boarding school, access to care and further education in the form of a university scholarship or vocational training that leads to work. We accompany the young people all the way to work and livelihood.
