Mongolia, Selenge ADP

Selenge is located in northeast Mongolia near the Russian border. It is between the Orkhon and Selenge river basins and the hills and mountains in the forest steppe regions.

In Selenge, about 30% of the population live in poverty. The community faces persistent unemployment after an economic downturn. Families struggle with job loss and limited opportunities for businesses and self employment. They also face challenges in child protection, economic development and education. Poor environmental hygiene and sanitation issues have also led to epidemic outbreaks and put children's lives at risk. 

Mongolia’s harsh climate, poorly developed infrastructure, persistent poverty, and nomadic herding lifestyle increase risk of loss of livelihood due to natural hazards. Driven by poverty, many children work illegally in surrounding mines, raising school dropout rates and huge child protection concerns.

Philippines, Antique ADP

World Vision started its operations in Antique province in 1984 through a church partner. Over the years, the scope of work expanded and transited into longer term development programmes. With an established presence in the area, World Vision has been able to bring people together and empower local leaders and partners to make a difference for children in their community.

The Antique province has the highest rate of malnutrition in the entire Western Visayas region. With malnutrition present in the target community, children face an increased risk of wasting, stunted growth, respiratory illnesses and impaired brain development.

26% of the population in Antique live below the national poverty line. In several vulnerable families, men and boys work as sakadas, or sugarcane farmers, which is perilous work and does not generate much income. In order to ensure their families can afford basic necessities, men and boys work in other provinces and young women work as maids.

Low income levels have far reaching implications on children. It can lead to them dropping out of school to work in order to support their family. As parents are focused on finding food for the family, other responsibilities are left behind. The lack of parental guidance often leads to children engaging in delinquent behaviour.

Ethiopia, Yaya Gulele ADP

World Vision Singapore has been funding Yaya Gulele ADP since its inception in 2007. Working in tandem with national governmental policies and other agencies for the eradication of poverty and transformational development in Ethiopia, this programme seeks to help families in the target areas achieve livelihood security on a sustainable basis. 

Ethiopia ranks 173 out of 189 countries on the 2017 Human Development Index. The average household income is US$100 per month and 34.7% of the population live below the poverty line. A majority of the population are farmers engaged in mixed cultivation and livestock rearing. 

In Yaya Gulele ADP, more than 50% of children have not gained functional literacy. Inadequate school materials and limited access to updated teaching methodologies contribute to students not being engaged in school. As such, they prefer to do income generating activities like farming instead of going to school.

Also, there is a high level of need in the areas of healthcare, sanitation and clean water. The causes are poor sanitation practices, poor waste disposal and open defecation. Due to the inability to have a balanced diet and age appropriate food, mothers and children are malnourished.

Sri Lanka, Lindula ADP

World Vision has been involved with Sri Lanka’s tea estate workers for many years and Lindula ADP is an extension of this work. Tea plantation workers have been marginalised in Sri Lanka for a very long time. Originally brought in from South India over 150 years ago, they were eventually exploited for work and isolated from the rest of the country. World Vision’s interventions focus on the well-being of children to ensure that their health, nutrition, education and social needs are met.

In Lindula ADP, majority of the people work as pickers and labourers in the tea estates. They are paid daily, and when work is not available, they face a severe shortage of income.

Also, children lack proper education, and 45% of the population under 12 years old are illiterate. This is due to long travel distances, poor transport facilities and lack of finances for education resulting in a dropout rate of 14.5%, almost 10 times the national average.

In terms of healthcare and child protection challenges, 74% of people live in dismal housing. Whole families live in a single room that is linked to others to form a “line house”. There is little ventilation, no privacy, and conditions are often unsanitary. Only 67.1% of households have their own latrines and the remaining families share common latrines or defecate in open areas.

Zambia, Musosolokwe ADP

World Vision began an assessment study in Musosolokwe in July 2009. It was found that the target area was hampered by insufficient health facilities, ill-equipped schools and a lack of food security. Children had to walk long distances to reach medical centres that were inadequately stocked, schools lacked necessary items like desks and learning materials and food was not available all year round. Recognising these needs, the Musosolokwe ADP began its initiatives in April 2010.

The harsh landscape in Musosolokwe deprives children of a fair chance at education. Children have to cover over 25 km to reach one of three schools in the area. Flooding also destroys roads and flood waters can wash away and drown children.

In addition, there is a high rate of malaria, diarrhoea and malnutrition among children. This leads to high mortality and stunted growth in children, which further perpetuates poverty in Musosolokwe.

Also, over 40% of children have only one meal a day due to poor crop harvest as a result of bad weather conditions and poor farming methods. Alternative sources of income are hard to come by, and natural resources in Musosolokwe are slowly being exploited by the community to earn more income.

Indonesia, Ende ADP

World Vision started an ADP in 2014 after a thorough assessment of Ende in 2012. Measured against standard indicators of economic development needs, Ende emerged as an area where the vulnerability of children needed to be urgently addressed. 

In Ende, traditional attitudes towards children are harsh and unsympathetic. They are viewed as free labour and are often denied their right to study so that they can work to supplement the family income. Cases of physical and sexual abuse are not taken seriously and are unreported or left unsolved, affecting and scarring children emotionally and mentally. 

In terms of healthcare concerns, the main issues that compromise the health of children are the lack of access to clean water, the prevalence of unhygienic behaviours and poor sanitation systems. Approximately 40% of the community practices open defecation as there are no proper toilets. 

Also, Ende's economic development falls behind national statistics. Their main source of income is agriculture but the productivity of existing farming methods is low due to a lack of understanding, poor management, pests and diseases.

Bangladesh, Wazipur ADP

Wazipur, Bangladesh is a district located in the Southern region of Bangladesh, about 114km away from Dhaka. The majority of the population are limited to labour-intensive and low-income occupations such as farmers, daily labourers or petty traders. As the district is also prone to earthquakes, water-logging and arsenic poisoning, economic livelihood opportunities are further restricted. The prevalence of child labout and child marriage also contribute to high drop-out rates in school - limiting the opportunities for future growth and development.

Nepal, Sindhuli East ADP

Sindhuli is one of the poorest and most deprived areas in Nepal, ranking 56 out of 75 districts in the national poverty deprivation list. World Vision began an assessment study into this area in April 2012 and found the needs of the mainly minority ethnic groups here compelling. Hence, the Sindhuli ADP began its work in Oct 2013.

The majority of the people in the ADP are dalits (untouchables) and indigenous Janajati. These groups are among the poorest people in Nepal. They depend on agriculture, manual labour and seasonal migrant labour for their livelihoods.

In terms of education, the illiteracy rate in the ADP is 60%. Parents of poor families do not value the education of their children. Rather, they send their children to work at an early age to supplement family income, and it is common for children to drop out of school at the primary level.

Children from Dalit and Janajati communities are also more vulnerable to malnutrition and childhood illnesses, which hinders their growth and development.

There is little ventilation, no privacy, and conditions are often unsanitary. Only 67.1% of households have their own latrines and the remaining families share common latrines or defecate in open areas.

Indonesia, Ende ADP

World Vision started an ADP in 2014 after a thorough assessment of Ende in 2012. Measured against standard indicators of economic development needs, Ende emerged as an area where the vulnerability of children needed to be urgently addressed. 

In Ende, traditional attitudes towards children are harsh and unsympathetic. They are viewed as free labour and are often denied their right to study so that they can work to supplement the family income. Cases of physical and sexual abuse are not taken seriously and are unreported or left unsolved, affecting and scarring children emotionally and mentally. 

In terms of healthcare concerns, the main issues that compromise the health of children are the lack of access to clean water, the prevalence of unhygienic behaviours and poor sanitation systems. Approximately 40% of the community practices open defecation as there are no proper toilets. 

Also, Ende's economic development falls behind national statistics. Their main source of income is agriculture but the productivity of existing farming methods is low due to a lack of understanding, poor management, pests and diseases.

Ethiopia, Yaya Gulele ADP

World Vision Singapore has been funding Yaya Gulele ADP since its inception in 2007. Working in tandem with national governmental policies and other agencies for the eradication of poverty and transformational development in Ethiopia, this programme seeks to help families in the target areas achieve livelihood security on a sustainable basis. 

Ethiopia ranks 173 out of 189 countries on the 2017 Human Development Index. The average household income is US$100 per month and 34.7% of the population live below the poverty line. A majority of the population are farmers engaged in mixed cultivation and livestock rearing. 

In Yaya Gulele ADP, more than 50% of children have not gained functional literacy. Inadequate school materials and limited access to updated teaching methodologies contribute to students not being engaged in school. As such, they prefer to do income generating activities like farming instead of going to school.

Also, there is a high level of need in the areas of healthcare, sanitation and clean water. The causes are poor sanitation practices, poor waste disposal and open defecation. Due to the inability to have a balanced diet and age appropriate food, mothers and children are malnourished.

我要助养儿童 - 帮我配对!  

儿童助养计划可以提升贫困孩童、家庭和社区的能力,并助他们改善生活处境,继而将内在潜能全面发挥出来!

您可透过每月捐献45元,为社区居民提供生活基本需求,如:干净水源与卫生、医疗保健与营养、教育、家庭生计和儿童保护,为社区的生活带来转变。我们将集合您和其他助养人的捐献,并用于推动您助养童的社区整体发展。您助养的儿童也会因此受益。助养人也可透过书信、E-letter等方式与儿童分享互动,陪伴孩子成长。

您的助养能让孩子们经历 许多美好的第一次:

第一次有干净的水喝

World Vision (世界宣明会)致力在社区提供干净的水原与卫生设施,同时教导居民管理与维修水资源和卫生设施。我们也会教导他们如何关注个人与环境卫生。

第一次有医疗保健与营养的食物吃

World Vision 致力于确保孩童和孕产妇的健康,并透过推广健康与营养知识,建立与改善医疗保健服务,以及预防导致疾病的主因。。

第一次得到有素质的教育

父母亲第一个稳定的工作

如:透过改善农耕系统和商业技能,
以及提升相关的金融服务管道,增加他们的收入,
帮助他们应付家庭的生活所需。

 

 

第一次受到保护

在World Vision工作的社区,我们致力保护儿童
免受暴力和虐待。我们积极装备社区的需求,为孩儿童
提供保护和醒觉教育,向他们倡导儿童权益的醒觉意识,
并确保孩童在社区里拥有自己的权利。

"我心里有很多疑问,关于这个世界
究竟发生什么事情?还有作为一个人,我们是否应该彼此帮助呢?
我觉得每一个平凡人也是有能力的,
这与他拥有的金钱多寡无关。而是那份与人分享的心,
应该是我们生命的一部分。


陈凤玲
我一直很喜欢孩子,也很希望孩子们,
特别是贫穷国家的孩子们能有被疼爱的感觉。
众所皆知,他们是一群被剥削的群体,拐卖、
儿童婚约等不断的发生。


周慧敏
我很能理解贫困父母的感受,他们会很想让自己的孩子得到帮助,
或希望有人去助养他们,让孩子们能够脱离贫穷困境,
有自立的机会,不需要过与他们一样的生活。

王力宏
我相信每个孩童都应该在健康和安全的环境下成长,
然而,在贫困社区,贫穷剥夺了孩童应该有的权力。
我要请你,一起成为儿童助养人,
走进儿童的世界,携手改写贫困孩童的未来。

助养 童享美好成果 - Janvie 的故事

“我从助养儿童计划找到了自己的声音, 现在玛莉也可以做到。”

 

人生的第二次机会 - Nancy 的故事

“如果没有世界宣明会的援助,我就不会有今天的成就。我的人生获得了第二次的机会。”

 

 

Janvie六岁的时候,父母把他留下给外祖母后,再没有回家,让他一直感觉被遗弃。 因为贫困的家境, Janvie 不能上学,要在烈日下收割竹蔗,赚微薄的收入。

有一天, World Vision 在他所住的地方开展助养儿童计划,他也因此成为助养儿童。 他找到了发愤前进的盼望,也终于可以上学读书。

现在,他是一个儿童权益倡议者。对他而言,如果他没有助养者的支持,他可能还活在贫困之中。 因此,他决定要把这份爱与祝福延续下去。他现在助养了玛莉,也改变她和她的社区。

“我从助养儿童计划找到了自己的声音, 现在玛莉 也可以做到。”

34岁的 Nancy 是内罗毕大学的毕业生。她之所以能有今天的成就,全因为她的助养者。

从小, Nancy 就眼见当地的妇女过着负责取水和饲养牲畜的生活。她想要透过教育,过一个截然不同的人生。然而,她的继父并不支持她上学,甚至不愿买校服给她。她说:“人们认为女孩,或依然认为女孩比不上男孩。”

透过儿童助养计划, Nancy 在学校收到了一套新的校服,让她第一次感受到被助养后所带来的改善。“我很开心,有人关心我,还买校服给我!” 而那只不过是一个开始。

世界宣明会在 Nancy 居住的社区展开工作,供应校服、书本和书包、津贴学费,以及在学校建设课室和储水槽。世界宣明会也在她居住的社区协助提升医疗保健服务和建设水源项目。

Nancy 由衷地感激Georgie的慷慨资助。说道,“如果没有世界宣明会的援助,我就不会有今天的成就。我的人生获得了第二次的机会。”

常见问题

World Vision 在任何一个区域的工作一般长达十年至十五年之久。助养者参与社区发展的时间长短则因人而异。有些助养者在社区发展初期加入助养计划,有些则在发展末期加入。助养也可能因其他因素终止,其中可包括您助养的儿童完成学业、开始赚取收入或与家人搬离世界宣明会工作的社区。若您在任何情况下未能继续助养,可随时与我们联系。

不会。 World Vision 只为每位儿童指定一位助养者。然而,您可以与家人或朋友一同助养一名儿童。您只须委任一名联络人负责与儿童通信联系、每月交付捐款、以及与世界宣明会联络沟通。

新加坡的政府规定慈善机构一般上只能动用高达三成的捐款当作筹款开销。 World Vision Singapore 在2019财政年度只动用了16.4%的筹款作为开销。其余的83.6%都用来资助世界宣明会的各个项目,让儿童们及他们的家庭与社区一同受益。但是,您助养的善款不是直接交给您的助养儿童。单纯给予只会造成依赖,协助社区自立才是发展工作的最终目标。因此,助养者的捐款不止惠及一个儿童或他的家庭,而是连同其他助养者的捐款,发展儿童身处的社区,令生活环境得到长远改善及可持续发展,让他们能在健康的环境中成长。
