We work with community representatives to identify areas that have the greatest need.
Afterwards, the decision to commence a sponsorship programme is made with the communities. An assessment is carried out by local World Vision staff alongside community representatives, local authorities and other non-government organisations in the area.
Before we commence a sponsorship programme, the following things must be in place:
- Community understanding and commitment to the programme
- A basic level of security and stability in the community
- Access to remote parts of the community and basic communications so that we can regularly visit and monitor children’s well-being
