Half of the displaced people in the world are children. It is estimated that 30 million children are forced to flee their homes or are separated from families due to war.
War Child empowers children and young people in conflict areas by providing psychosocial support, stimulating education and protecting children from the trauma of war. Children can be separated from their families, be at risk of physical harm, abuse or sexual exploitation. The trauma that children in conflict zones face can cause psychological damage that can last their lifetime.
War Child work on the ground in conflict zones and has impacted the lives of more than 123,000 children in nine countries. Their mission is to protect, educate and stand up for the rights of children caught up in war, and aim to reach them as early as possible when conflict breaks out, providing them with the protection, education, livelihood and advocacy that they need.

Love – Invisible Girls Project
Book your day tours through Get Your Guide, and we donate 10% of all profit to the Invisible Girls Project.
Today in India, girls and women are discriminated against and murdered, just because they are female. Girls are at risk of being killed, abandoned or trafficked and more girls and women have been discriminated against and killed in the past century than any other modern-day genocide.
50 million girls are missing from India’s population, due to gendercide. Invisible Girl Project is a non-profit organisation that seeks to end the atrocity of gendercide in India. They raise global awareness concerning the loss of female lives in India, pursue justice, and assist in the rescue and care for girls.

Education – Malala Fund
The Malala Fund was founded by Malala Yousafzai, a young girl who demanded education for girls in Pakistan. She stood up to the Taliban and became the youngest winner of the Nobel Peace Prize. With the alarming statistic that 130 million girls are out of school, the Malala Fund works in regions where girls miss out on secondary education.
Instead of going to school, girls are sent to factories to work, forced to marry, or denied an education by being told to stay at home. Malala Fund’s aim is to give every girl hope for tomorrow, and believe that nothing is more important than a girl’s education.
Helping vulnerable girls in Afghanistan, Brazil, India, Lebanon, Nigeria, Pakistan and Turkey.
