World Vision’s child sponsorship programs focus on improving the well-being of children in need, especially the most vulnerable. We are uniquely equipped to go to the world’s most broken, heart-wrenching places. Places where it’s hard to be a child. Places where other child sponsorship organizations don’t often go.
We take a holistic approach, working alongside communities to tackle the root causes of poverty and create sustainable change. For every child sponsored through World Vision, another 4 children will also benefit. That’s because we work to strengthen the whole community, so all children can thrive.
Our child sponsorship programs are:
Child Well Being Indicators
We measure child well-being in our sponsorship communities by monitoring these four indicators and outcomes. Our goal is that all children should:
1. Enjoy Good Health
Making sure children and families are well-nourished, protected from infection and disease, and have access to essential health services.
2. Be educated for life
Giving children opportunities to learn and develop their talents, equipping young people for the future, and bringing families and communities together to support children’s education.
3. Experience the love of God and their neighbors
Helping children and families grow spiritually, strengthening local churches to demonstrate Christ’s love in practical ways, and encouraging people to live at peace with their neighbors.
4. Be cared for, protected, and participating in their community
Ensuring Boys and girls are safe and valued, well cared for by their families, and participating in their communities as agents of transformation.
