Income from governments
Income from governments in 2017 was €13.0 million. The Netherlands government, United Nations agencies and the European Commission jointly contribute €10.6 million to this income category by funding various projects in many of our programme countries. Although government grants are the largest source of income for War Child, it was lower than planned for the year (€14.6 million). This is due to a number of large proposals not being awarded to us against our expectations. We were however able to offset some setbacks by other funding, realising significant growth in other segments.
