EU helps more war-affected children become Children of Peace

EU helps more war-affected children become Children of Peace
19/11/2013  - 

The EU "Children of Peace" programme, launched a year ago to support children-victims of war, will continue to make a difference to more children in more crisis areas in 2014.

The EU launched "Children of Peace" after being awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 2012 as a symbol of its ambition to continue to be a force for good in the world. The focus is on children: war's most tragic victims. Last year the programme gave 28 000 conflict-affected children access to education and safe spaces to study and grow.

To show what "Children of Peace" has achieved and to announce how the programme will continue, the European Commission is organising an event in Brussels tomorrow, 20 November – Universal Children's Day. You can join us as well! Click here for more details.
