Home Ground supports War Child
In an effort to help make this world a better place the Home Ground campaign will be in support of charity. Based on the lyrical content and the fact that the project is music-based, Stephen immediately thought of War Child as the perfect fit. War Child works for a better future for hundreds of thousands of children affected by war. They help them cope with their conflict-related experiences, rebuild relationships with friends and families and regain their self-confidence.
War Child creates safe places where they can be children again and work to build a stable and peaceful future – both for themselves and their communities. The campaign will therefore focus on creating increased awareness for the amazing work of War Child. At the same time we’ll donate a fair share of the proceeds to support them in helping ‘our’ children – the best cornerstone imaginable for a future world at peace.
About War Child

War Child Programm
Drama, visual arts, music, dance, sports and games, social media and ICT stimulate children’s creative skills. Creative activities connect to the world of children. They provide instant fun, generate positive energy, and give children and young people new skills that they can be proud of. Creative activities are an ideal outlet for emotions. Children and young people learn to overcome their fears, develop confidence and find a way to express themselves freely. Creativity can break down ethnic, religious and gender barriers.
2. Participation and inclusion
All children and young people, including the most vulnerable, have the right to express their views freely and have those views taken into account. In War Child’s programming, they actively influence decision-making, and the design and implementation of our projects and activities. The meaningful participation of all children is not only a right, but also a necessity for the successful implementation of our projects.
3. Conflict sensitivity
War Child ensures its own actions and behaviours do not negatively influence a conflict. In order to maintain neutrality, War Child analyses the parties to a conflict, and chooses the target groups and locations for projects with the utmost care. The content of War Child’s projects are adapted depending on the conflict context (political, economic or social), and the effect of the conflict on children. The geographical areas of a given conflict influence decisions on project locations.
