War Child Care System

The Care System is made up of a set of ‘Core Interventions’ that address the various needs of conflict-affected children and communities. These interventions are supplemented with a number of initiatives to promote access to care and reduce stigmatization.

This model allows for an integrated approach that ensures the various interventions are interconnected and mutually reinforce one another - for maximum impact. The suite of interventions also vary in intensity according to the needs of children and their communities - to ensure all mental healthcare needs are met. The interventions that make up this system are outlined below:

Our Core Interventions

  • I-DEAL Intervention to strengthen life skills

  • Caregiver Support Intervention for parents and caregivers

  • Early Adolescents Skills for Emotions for children experiencing distress

  • Nurturing Families Intervention to support families with complex problems

  • Case Management Intervention to meet protection needs

  • Community-Driven Child Protection Intervention supporting communities to protect children

  • CORE for Teachers to build enabling and supportive learning environments

  • Can’t Wait to Learn - digital game-based learning

  • TeamUp - a game and movement based psychosocial intervention
