When a sponsorship programme ends, it’s because the community has reached a point where they can continue the development work we began together on their own. In most cases, committees made up of local people are set up to monitor progress and oversee ongoing development work.
The ultimate goal of child sponsorship is self-sufficiency. When this has been achieved, World Vision moves on to help another community in need.
Through our sponsorship programmes, children and adults gain knowledge and skills which stay with them long after World Vision has gone, and for generations to come.
