Child Sponsorship Stories

Success stories about child sponsorships

Now passionate child advocates, Sharon and Wee Leong share their experience as World Vision child sponsors!

"I believe our small effort could turn out to be a great support for our country to beat COVID-19,” says Saru. “People in my community have started to recognise me. I belong to a low caste but now people address me [as] ‘Miss’ (considered as a title of respect for women).”

“They could not realise that a girl child also can support herself as well as her family. They felt I was kind of a burden. They tried to get rid of me as early as possible by forcing me into marriage,” recalled Nasima.
