Firefly International supports grass root organisations in countries affected by conflict and the devastation it can cause for children and families.


At the forefront of all the local projects we support is local knowledge and using this in the most effective way to support refugees and children experiencing the long term effects of war.

We focus on education, the arts, health and well-being as well as reducing local tensions and promoting peaceful dialogue.
Much emphasis is placed on providing a safe and therapeutic environment as well as creative and relevant learning for children whose greatest need is hope.
