When you sponsor a child in Africa, your donation supports the community your sponsored child lives in. This way the children themselves, their families, neighbours and friends can benefit from the development work World Vision undertakes in partnership with the people of the area.
Your support helps build education and health facilities, infrastructure as well as water and food security projects. Most importantly your support empowers the community and gives them the tools to work themselves out of poverty. World Vision works under the principle: Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day – teach a man how to fish and he will eat for a lifetime.
Last year our communities (Area Development Programmes) worked hard and developed micro financing and income generating projects, implemented new farming techniques for better harvests and fought hard against threats to their children like Malaria and HIV/AIDS. You can read more about our Area Development Programmes in their individual overviews here on the site.
Your donation will help provide people in Nepal with access to clean water, food, shelter and basic goods after a massive earthquake devastated the country. As the situation in Nepal is changing rapidly, the amounts below are indicative of how your donation may be used as part of our response to the earthquake.
