What is Child Sponsorship?

When you sponsor a child, you give a child, her family and her community the opportunity to live without poverty.

  • Education
    • Books, uniforms, classroom repairs, and training for teachers and parents provide a child with opportunities for the future.
  • Safe Water
    • 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.
  • Nutritious Food
    • World Vision goes beyond food distributions but also focuses on creating sustainable food supplies through agricultural programs and nutritional training. Healthy children have more energy for life.
  • Health Care
    • Your child sponsorship provides access to things like medical clinics, vaccinations, training in disease prevention and other health care programs.
  • Child Protection
    • We advocate for child rights and encourage children to speak up against abuse and injustice.
  • Economic Development
    • Microloans and business training enable families to build a better future for children.
  • Community Leadership
    • We work with local leaders to strengthen their skills.
