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.

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.

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.
