Zambia, Musosolokwe ADP

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.

How Child Sponsorship Transforms an Entire Community

World Vision helps your sponsored child through the Area Development Programme (ADP) in his or her community. Through ADPs, we identify where we work and who we work with, and then carry out development activities specific to an ADP’s needs.

With the collective support of sponsors, we usually work in an ADP for 15 years to bring transformation. This is done in 3 phases to bring change at a pace that is sustainable.

Parents of sponsored children receive useful skills training and income-generating opportunities to help them provide and care for their family in the long term. The lives of other members of the community are also enriched as knowledge is transferred and resources are shared.

Eventually, communities take ownership of their projects and continue the work that was started. In this way, lives are transformed through sustainable, long-term development projects!

With your help, the community has grown healthier, safer and more self-sustaining! We are now ready to transition out and begin the transformation process with another community in need.
