Kanika* (aged 14) 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.
“All the children are healthy,” Kanika says. “I am really thankful.”
Clean water can be truly life-changing - and every 60 seconds, another family gains access to clean water through World Vision. 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.

At World Vision, we change a child’s life by transforming their world. We work with locals and partners to bring long-term change in areas across the community.
Depending on needs in the child’s area, sponsorship projects may focus on:
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.
Every dollar you give helps World Vision to continue its life-changing work. We work hard to ensure all donations are used as efficiently as possible to give maximum impact to children in need.
83.3 percent donated goes to field programs and advocacy work.
