Why is community development important in Child Sponsorship?

When a community is stable and productive, it can provide for its children’s long-term well-being; the most effective way to improve children’s well-being is to strengthen their community’s ability to provide for it.

The well-being of a child is dependent on their families and community. In order to thrive, children need to grow up in an environment that can provide the essentials for today, together with hope and opportunity for the future.

Through the years, many communities have leapt from brokenness to hope with the help of World Vision's Child Sponsorship programme. The goal is for the community to achieve self-sustainability. World Vision plans and works alongside local community members to find solutions that will change the future for their children, and their children’s children.
