Help children grow up healthy andachieve their dreams
Sponsor a child today
Kanika used to imagine a world where the children of Kampong Leng in Cambodia didn’t get sick from drinking dirty water. When World Vision arrived in her community, only 11 percent of families had access to clean water.
Thanks to child sponsors, Kanika’s vision is becoming a reality. Over 190 wells have been built and 92 percent of families in Kampong Leng now have access to clean water. This means Kanika and her friends are much healthier. They have more time and energy to focus on their education and to follow their dreams.
By sponsoring a child, you can help an entire community gain access to clean, safe water and help them make lasting improvements in other areas like education, healthcare and family incomes. It’s the most effective and rewarding way to help give children and their communities a brighter future.
Thanks to child sponsors through World Vision, Kanika's dream of a healthy, happy childhood is becoming a reality.
Kanika’s community was focused on access to clean water, health, education and supporting families. Different sponsorship projects may focus on some or all of these areas, including:
• Water and sanitation • Food and agriculture • Health and nutrition
•Education and child rights • Income generation
With your support, World Vision helps 2.8 million people to access clean water every year. That’s one family every 60 seconds.
Child sponsorship enables new wells and boreholes to be delivered, alongside toilets, handwashing facilities and essential hygiene education. With clean water and improved hygiene, children are better protected from disease. They can also spend more time in school instead of walking for hours to collect water for their families
Access to education, classroom repairs, school supplies and training for teachers and parents provides a child with opportunities for a better future.
Access to safe water through well-drilling, pumps and training in hygiene and sanitation decreases child mortality and frees up time for education instead of water collection.
Going beyond food distribution to a focus on creating sustainable food supplies through agricultural programs and nutritional training ensures that children are well-nourished and healthy.
Good health is the foundation of a child’s life. Access to essential services, vaccinations, medical clinics and training in disease prevention provides stronger health, for children and their communities.
Microloans, business training and a variety of skills training enable families to provide for their children’s needs.
