War Child is looking for a consultant to help conceptualize and develop a sports and personal development program for adolescents and youth in Gaza.

We support children regardless of their religion, ethnicity, social background, or gender. Our work is based on the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child. We strive to empower children and young people, while enabling adults to bring about positive and lasting change in the lives of conflict affected children and young people.

WCH has been working in the Gaza strip since 2009, facilitating civil society organizations to provide
child protection and psychosocial support services for children and families. Recently, WCH has committed to extending more focussed services to adolescents and youth, and in oPt is supported for the development of this new initiative by War Child UK.
