War Child restructured its International Programmes Department in 2017 to better serve our strategic goal - to deliver programmes with meaningful impact for communities and children affected by conflict and violence.
The restructure saw us set up a Programme Quality team with a specific remit to uphold quality assurance. This remit - with its focus on ensuring quality in everything we do - covers a wide range of organisational aspects. These aspects include our programmes; internal learning; our governance mechanisms; and ability to influence national and international policy.
The year also saw us develop a region-focused approach to our programmes. This approach has the purpose of improving development of our quality processes - and thereby the quality of our work. This initiative will see us establish Regional Teams in our wider areas of operation to create increased cross-border collaboration.
The year saw our Middle East Regional Team become fully operational - a step which represents significant progress in our drive for quality.
