Guidelines for Sponsors

As a sponsor, you begin an altogether new relationship with your sponsored child. While you may be excited to share your child’s details and photos, as a World Vision India child sponsor, you have a responsibility to protect the children we serve.

World Vision India is committed to the welfare of children and their protection from abuse and exploitation. In order to help protect the privacy, dignity and personal safety of every sponsored child, we expect you to follow the guidelines in line with our Child Protection Policies.

The lives of children, their families, and members of their community should be represented with accuracy and dignity. We consider the children we work with as our partners, working with us to help bring holistic transformation to communities living in poverty. We seek the full, informed consent of parents, guardians, and/or community leaders for a child's participation in our child sponsorship programmes.

If you have any questions about any of these policies, please email us to indiasponsors@wvi.org.
If a registered child, family member/legal guardian or donor/sponsor has breached any of the above-mentioned guidelines of child protection, ensure to immediately report such incidences by emailing us at indiasponsors@wvi.org.
