Bangladesh, Wazipur AP

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 labour and child marriage also contribute to high drop-out rates in school - limiting the opportunities for future growth and development.

Sri Lanka, Lindula AP

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 AP

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.

Philippines, Antique AP

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.

Indonesia, Ende AP

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.

Cambodia, Kirivong AP

World Vision has been working in Takeo province since 1997. Originally, the Area Development Programme (ADP) covered only two of twelve communes in Kirivong District. From October 2014, the ADP expanded its target area to another commune, Kiri Chong Kaoh, so as to impact a greater number of children and their families. Kirivong ADP now covers 27 villages in three communes.

Most of the people in Kirivong ADP are engaged in rice farming, and some families also raise animals such as cows, pigs and chickens. But the community faces food shortages three to six months a year.

In addition, the literacy rate in Kirivong district is at 41%. Where education is concerned, enrolment rates at primary and secondary levels are high. But two in 10 children drop out of school before Grade 9 due to poverty, poor school facilities including lack of school teachers, and the need to help support their families’ incomes.

Access to safe drinking water is also problematic. Most villagers have to travel long distances to collect water in the dry season.

Supporting a Child in Need with World Vision Singapore 

World Vision is an international charity organisation dedicated to working with vulnerable children, families and communities. World Vision Singapore works in several vulnerable countries to uplift those stuck in poverty, violence and injustice, among others, to aid them on a journey towards a better life. World Vision’s main charity initiative for these children and communities is through the Child Sponsorship programme. When you sponsor a child in need with World Vision Singapore, your donation paves their paths towards nutrition, child protection, education and clean water, among others. Furthermore, with our community-focused approaches, for every child you help, 4 more children benefit as well.

 

 What does it mean to sponsor a child?  

When you sponsor a child from a vulnerable community, you support them beyond the financial sphere. Instead, you give them hope for a brighter future and a chance to live life in all its fullness. Your sponsorship will also support the child’s communities and family - through holistic transformation and community empowerment - enabling them to reach self-reliance and sustainability. This eliminates the likelihood of dependence on charity organisations while supporting their development.
