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.

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.

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.

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.

Vietnam, Son Tra AP

While urbanisation rapidly spreads in Son Tra district, children from poor families continue to struggle to meet their basic needs. Almost one in five people live on less than US$2 per day and there are gaps in the areas of housing, transportation and education.

As the area develops, there is an increase in hotels and tourism. But locals are ill-equipped for this change as they lack formal education and technical skills. As a result, they have challenges gaining employment and providing for their children’s basic needs.

The district has the highest rate of stunting in the city, with 18.5% of children under the age of five being affected. Diarrhoea, acute respiratory infections, dengue and pneumonia are common diseases among children between 0-14 years old as poor families cannot afford proper healthcare from qualified practitioners.

Parents of poor families spend almost all their time struggling to make a living. As a result, their children are neglected and lack care, guidance and supervision.

In light of these needs, World Vision started the implementation of Son Tra ADP in 2015. Through consultation and cooperation with community representatives and the local government, the project aims to improve the well-being of children.

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%.

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.

Mongolia, Selenge AP

Selenge is located in northeast Mongolia near the Russian border. It is between the Orkhon and Selenge river basins and the hills and mountains in the forest steppe regions.

In Selenge, about 30% of the population live in poverty. The community faces persistent unemployment after an economic downturn. Families struggle with job loss and limited opportunities for businesses and self employment. They also face challenges in child protection, economic development and education. Poor environmental hygiene and sanitation issues have also led to epidemic outbreaks and put children's lives at risk. 

Mongolia’s harsh climate, poorly developed infrastructure, persistent poverty, and nomadic herding lifestyle increase risk of loss of livelihood due to natural hazards. Driven by poverty, many children work illegally in surrounding mines, raising school dropout rates and huge child protection concerns.

Driven by poverty, many children work illegally in surrounding mines, raising school dropout rates and huge child protection concerns.

In Selenge, about 30% of the population live in poverty. The community faces persistent unemployment after an economic downturn. Families struggle with job loss and limited opportunities for businesses and self employment. They also face challenges in child protection, economic development and education. Poor environmental hygiene and sanitation issues have also led to epidemic outbreaks and put children's lives at risk.
