Today, an estimated 50 million people across 45 countries are
on the brink of famine and more than half of them are children. Why?
Drought and other climate disasters, high population and poverty.

Child sponsorship means teaching farmers how to protect their land and improve
farming techniques. With this knowledge they can grow more nutritious food and sustainably increase their incomes.

Communities can restore their environment and fight climate change through Farmer Managed Natural Regeneration (FMNR). FMNR can support climate change mitigation, more firewood, timber, and wild foods, bigger better crops, healthier more productive livestock, better incomes and quality of life, increased biodiversity and reduced conflict and migration.

Through FMNR, farmers like Pamela from southwest Kenya can create new income sources to meet everyday needs and support their families in the long term. Pamela can now send her son Clinton to school with shoes. Before, she didn't have the means to earn a reliable income, so Clinton would often go to school barefoot.

Child sponsorship means a mother isn’t forced to choose which child gets to eat today.

It also means you can help provide clean drinking water to protect children
from cholera, typhoid and dysentery.

In Kenya, Cheru no longer walks hours each day to collect water.

World Vision supporters help reach one new person with clean water every 10 seconds.

For Cheru, this means she has energy to learn, and hope for the future.

Partnering up with World Vision means you are not accepting the way
things are because you know there is a better way the world could be.
Because that’s how you change it.
