West Bank, South Hebron AP

World Vision has been working in the area since 1975 in various capacities. In 2009, South Hebron was identified as having the most vulnerable communities in the West Bank. An ADP was launched there with the goal of contributing to the well-being of children in the areas of health, education and protection to enable them to overcome the severe challenges they face. There are two main groups in the population: village dwellers and the Bedouins, who live a semi-nomadic life.

The unstable situation in the West Bank directly impacts agricultural productivity and livelihood opportunities. Land is of utmost importance to livelihood in the West Bank as community members are primarily herdsmen.

The lack of water is another huge challenge. Community members are unable to drill wells or build cisterns to catch rainwater without government permits.

In terms of health, 21% of children under five are anaemic, while almost 1 in 10 children under two are stunted. 33% of households are food insecure, with another 11% at risk of food insecurity.

One significant issue in the ADP is the illiteracy rate, which stands at 15%. In comparison, the national average is 4.1%.

Bangladesh, Wazirpur AP

Wazirpur, 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.

Ethiopia, Yaya Gulele AP

World Vision Singapore has been funding Yaya Gulele ADP since its inception in 2007. Working in tandem with national governmental policies and other agencies for the eradication of poverty and transformational development in Ethiopia, this programme seeks to help families in the target areas achieve livelihood security on a sustainable basis. 

Ethiopia ranks 173 out of 189 countries on the 2017 Human Development Index. The average household income is US$100 per month and 34.7% of the population live below the poverty line. A majority of the population are farmers engaged in mixed cultivation and livestock rearing. 

In Yaya Gulele ADP, more than 50% of children have not gained functional literacy. Inadequate school materials and limited access to updated teaching methodologies contribute to students not being engaged in school. As such, they prefer to do income generating activities like farming instead of going to school.

Also, there is a high level of need in the areas of healthcare, sanitation and clean water. The causes are poor sanitation practices, poor waste disposal and open defecation. Due to the inability to have a balanced diet and age appropriate food, mothers and children are malnourished.

Myanmar, Taikkyi AP

World Vision has been involved in Taikkyi since 2017, starting with the assessment and design phase. The most vulnerable groups in the community are identified to be poor families, orphans and children with illnesses.

Taikkyi is located near the sea and has a tropical monsoon climate. Flash floods and landslides are common, wiping out paddy fields and killing livestock. Some children travel to school by boat each day and flood waters remain up to two months. The community lacks disaster preparedness skills, and are hard hit whenever diasters arise.

Because of prevalent economic poverty, some children also work as child labourers in order to help support their family. Families struggle to afford education, and quality of education in the community is low. In addition, 1 in 20 children are malnourished, and there is also inadequate healthcare, water and sanitation systems. Children are especially vulnerable to diarrhoea and respiratory tract infections.

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.

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.

Taikkyi is located near the sea and has a tropical monsoon climate. Flash floods and landslides are common, wiping out paddy fields and killing livestock. Some children travel to school by boat each day and flood waters remain up to two months. The community lacks disaster preparedness skills, and are hard hit whenever diasters arise.

Because of prevalent economic poverty, some children also work as child labourers in order to help support their family. Families struggle to afford education, and quality of education in the community is low. In addition, 1 in 20 children are malnourished, and there is also inadequate healthcare, water and sanitation systems. Children are especially vulnerable to diarrhoea and respiratory tract infections.

Sponsor a Child with World Vision Singapore 

World Vision is an international humanitarian charity organisation dedicated to working with vulnerable children, families and communities. World Vision’s main charity initiative for these children and communities is through our Child Sponsorship programme. Many of them live in communities that are not conducive for proper development and growth, are in difficult situations, or orphaned and without care. When you sponsor a child or an orphan overseas 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, four more children benefit as well.

World Vision works in almost 100 countries to uplift those stuck in poverty, violence and other social injustices, among others, to aid them on a journey towards a better life.

 

 What does it mean to sponsor a child?  

When you sponsor a child overseas 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 children charity organisations while supporting their development.
