When you sponsor a child with World Vision, you’re helping to create long-lasting, sustainable change. We’re passionate about equipping children, their families and their communities with the tools to thrive – both now and into the future. Your support can make a lasting difference and help children reach their potential.
When you sponsor a child with World Vision you’re becoming part of something special because of the following reasons.
• You’re supporting work that changes children’s lives:
The wellbeing of children is at the heart of everything we do. Our vision is life in all its fullness for every child. As a child sponsor, you help make this life-changing work possible – you support projects that help transform the lives of vulnerable children and the communities where they live. You can help a child look forward to a better future.
• Our holistic vision for children’s wellbeing:
More than 50 years of experience has taught us that to change a child’s life, we need to transform their world – their family, community and local area. Your sponsorship helps to address the complex causes of poverty through projects focused on water, health, education, livelihoods and child protection, depending on each community’s needs.
• Our community-driven approach:
Each community we work with defines its goals and drives its own development. We work with community members every step of the way, developing and carrying out projects to improve children’s wellbeing and forge pathways out of poverty for the next generation. Your sponsorship helps a community achieve its goals.
• Our focus on long-term, sustainable change:
Real transformation happens – and lasts – when communities are self-sustaining and empowered to change their own circumstances. As a child sponsor, you’re helping to equip your sponsored child and the people around them with skills and knowledge to continue their own development activities.
• Our Christian identity strengthens partnerships:
As a Christian humanitarian organisation, we work with people of all cultures, faiths and genders to overcome poverty and injustice. Our Christian identity enables us to find common ground and build trust with people of many different faiths, and work closely with them to bring about lasting change in communities.
• You can connect with your sponsored child:
When you sponsor a child with World Vision you are given a window into their world. You can learn about their life, receive progress updates, exchange letters or even visit them in their community. You’ll also have access to My World Vision, where you can view photos and videos from your sponsored child’s community, manage your details and send eLetters to your sponsored child.
