“War Child strives to empower children and young people to flourish within their communities and overcome the challenges of living with, and recovering from, conflict. To achieve this, War Child works collaboratively with those communities to increase access to education, overcome the obstacles of poverty and create a protective environment for the rights of children and youth.” www.warchild.ca
Rock the Runway is a proud supporter of War Child Canada. This revolutionary organization was the first charitable partner of RTR and over the years we have had the privilege of supporting various projects that they have developed in war-affected regions. These projects include their micro-financing initiative for women in Afghanistan and the post-earthquake rehabilitation program for effected children and youth in Haiti. The mandate of War Child Canada is one that resides deeply with the RTR team, and inspired their dedication to global initiatives.
