How does World Vision decide which community to work with?

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:

  1. Community understanding and commitment to the programme
  2. A basic level of security and stability in the community
  3. Access to remote parts of the community and basic communications so that we can regularly visit and monitor children’s well-being
