HOW CHILD SPONSORSHIP CHANGES A CHILD’S WORLD

Poverty is an extremely complex issue that can become a vicious cycle, leaving those affected feeling hopeless. Child Sponsorship adopts a holistic approach, where we maximise your monthly contribution of $45 to provide your sponsored child and his/her community access to basic needs in five main areas:

 
 
CHILD PROTECTION

 

 Families and communities are empowered to protect children from abuse and injustices through education and the establishment of support systems.

 
 
EDUCATION

 

 With access to quality education and a conducive learning environment, children are empowered and equipped to build a brighter future.

 
 
HEALTH & FOOD SECURITY

 

 Families are equipped to attain food security and are educated on children’s nutritional needs to ensure their proper growth and development.

 
 
LIVELIHOODS & MICROFINANCE

 

Families and communities are equipped to develop skills for sustainable livelihood opportunities, which instils hope and aspirations for the future.

 
 
CLEAN WATER & SANITATION

 

Access to clean water protects children from avoidable diseases, while sanitation practices eliminate preventable diseases and reduce child mortality rates.
 

 

 

Meet Beverly: A devoted mother of two, an existing sponsor for 13 years, and now also a #Chosen sponsor! Beverly embarked on this meaningful journey with her family, to sow seeds of change in the children’s lives. Find out more about her story here:

 

“I was looking for something meaningful to do or to contribute to, I guess something bigger than myself,” Beverly explained.

 
 

STARTING YOUR CHILD SPONSORSHIP JOURNEY

For only $45 a month, you join our incredible community of child sponsors who, like you, are dedicated to giving the most vulnerable children a bright future.

What will you receive:

We make it easy for you to manage your personal details and contributions to World Vision, keep in touch with your sponsored child, and stay updated on the positive impact your support has created in their life!
 

 
 

WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU SPONSOR A CHILD

 
 
You build a relationship

 

Each child is uniquely sponsored by one sponsor - YOU! When you sponsor a child, you receive a welcome kit, a World Vision online account, and get the chance to connect with your sponsored child through letters and gifts, or even visit in person!

 
 
You transform a child’s world

 

Your monthly $45 sponsorship donation joins forces with other sponsors’ donations to support projects and activities designed to meet local needs and transform the world where your sponsored child lives.

 
 
Celebrate the progress

 

As your sponsored child grows and continues to benefit from the programmes which your donations go towards, you instil hope that they can thrive and dream big. Witness the impact of your donations through annual progress reports sent to you, where you see the change you’re helping to make possible.

 
 
A brighter future is possible

 

As a child sponsor, you get the chance to hear how you are supporting work that helps prepare and equip your sponsored child’s community to continue its own development activities in the long term, without World Vision’s assistance. Your help makes all the difference: communities blossom and becomes safer and self-sustainable!

 

Because of our community-focused solutions,
for every child you help, 4 more children benefit, too.

Your sponsorship money goes beyond just helping your sponsored child, benefitting his/her family and other children within the community as well! Parents of these children will also receive useful skills training and income-generating opportunities to help them attain self-sustainability in the long term.

 
 

WE ARE COMMITTED TO THE PROCESS OF TRANSFORMATION

We stay and work closely with each community for a decade or more. There are three phases to our approach, and the ultimate goal is to see communities take charge of their projects and see them through.

 

 
 
BUILDING THE FOUNDATION

 

During the first 3 years of development, we work closely with local leaders to identify challenges the community faces. Our team then maps out an action plan with the resources needed to create a healthy, sustainable environment.

 
 
EVALUATE & GROW

 

More members of the community become involved in leading and owning the projects during the middle phase of the programme (years 4 to 10). This period if also a time to make any necessary adjustments to projects, so goals are met.

 
 
ENHANCE SUSTAINABILITY

 

By years 11 to 15, the impact of your support is tangible. Families’ living conditions are improving, and they are empowered to independently continue the work you helped start.

 

 
 

Every 60 seconds
... a family gets water
... a hungry child is fed
... a family receives the tools to overcome poverty.

 

 
 

 
 

OUR CHILD SPONSORSHIP PROJECTS

Child sponsorship addresses the root causes of poverty, helping children and entire communities achieve self-sustainability through holistic and transformational development! Make your sponsorship count in the location of most concern to you by choosing the community with needs and circumstances near and dear to your heart.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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%.

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.

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.
