Caring for Communities

 

Support entire communities in their journey out of poverty and into self-sufficiency

Support Entire Communities

Support Communities and Change Lives! 

When communities help each other, change happens! 

When you support communities through World Vision's Village2Village program, you help to bring a positive impact to the communities in need with love, hope and resources that'll equip and strengthen them on their journey towards self-sufficiency.  

We approached communities from Africa to Asia to ensure a global collection of communities that are especially in need and when their needs are covered through your Village2Village pledge, they are given a chance to thrive as well!

Children, their families and other community members living in these especially vulnerable communities often have to face harsh realities every day and have little to no access to life's basics:

By pooling donations from community supporters like you, we can work toward improving Water & Sanitation, Health, Food Security, Agriculture, Education, Women’s & Children’s Rights and Economic Development for them in the present and for the future — breaking the cycle of poverty for the community sustainably. 

It’s a multi-year partnership with five communities across five countries!

Frequently Asked Questions

It takes a foundation of resources and activities over a sustained period before viable results take shape in communities. World Vision partners with each community for 12 to15 years to help them reach their full potential and establish secure, thriving and sustainable success. Although you can cancel your pledge at any time, your ongoing support will ensure that resources continue to be in place to assist communities in removing hurdles to achieving community self-sufficiency and success.

Projected dates that communities will reach self-sufficiency:

  • Indonesia: 2014 to 2028
  • JWG: 2011 to 2026 
  • Nepal: 2013 to 2026
  • Sri Lanka: 2013 to 2028 
  • Zambia: 2009 to 2025

We approached communities from Africa to Asia to ensure a global collection of communities that are especially in need because they do not have enough child sponsors. These children are not forsaken nor forgotten and when their needs are covered by the Village2Village product, we are giving them a chance to thrive as well.

Through the contributions from Village2Village donors, Water & Sanitation, Health, Food Security, Agriculture, Education, Women’s & Children’s Rights and Economic Development can be made available to them.

Village2Village is a new initiative. We are offering this as a new experience that enables donors to make a positive impact with communities. Specifically, this can be an avenue of engagement with communities in developing countries that resonates with them; which they prefer and can get on board with for a sustained period. Currently, there are 5 communities across 5 countries that are participating in the pledge product. If enough support is given to address the resource needs in these 5 communities, we will be looking at plans to expand the list of participating communities in the future.

You will receive a half-yearly email update on the program's performance as well as a printed copy of World Vision's Gift Catalogue. 

The minimum monthly amount for a Village2Village pledge is $29. If you change your mind, kindly email us at enquiries@worldvision.org.sg. We can help you continue your generosity by aligning your experience with an amount that is comfortable for you.

At this time, your monthly pledge will be pooled with other donors’ contributions and resources are distributed among the participating communities. We feel that this is an effective way of ensuring that resources continue to be in place to assist all participating communities in removing hurdles to community self-sufficiency and sustained success. If the country of choice is not in this group, you can continue to support them through a monthly pledge.

To do so, kindly contact us at 6922 0144. 

We approached communities from Africa to Asia to ensure a global collection of communities that are especially in need because they do not have enough child sponsors. These children are not forsaken nor forgotten and when their needs are covered through Village2Village, we are giving them a chance to thrive as well.

Your Village2Village pledge will give these children and their family with access to Water & Sanitation, Health, Food Security, Agriculture, Education, Women’s & Children’s Rights and Economic Development. 

Village2Village would also be so needful given the impact of COVID on the impoverished around Asia. As is, the UN just announced that the crisis threatens to destroy the livelihoods of South-east Asia's 218 million informal workers. Additionally, in our research, we are anticipating that 85 million families across Asia may have little or no food stocks and 110 million children in Asia facing hunger due to the pandemic. Now is the time to act. When we connect with villages across the world we are bringing hope and humanity; we are helping many communities. 

Our 70 years of experience has taught us that the most effective way to change a child’s life is to strengthen their whole community. Our experience has also taught us that helping individual sponsored children will only divide communities and slow progress, hence we have taken on a holistic and community-focused approach. 

We don’t give direct cash benefits to one child.

Instead, we combine your monthly donations with those of other sponsors to make the biggest impact on the worst problems children face in a community. It means your donations go further and you’ll help many more children growing up alongside them, now and in the future.
