World Vision's Child Sponsorship programme changes the lives of thousands of children every year. Our vision of creating a better world for our children works on the simple yet powerful principle that the best way to change the life of a needy child is to change the world in which he/she lives!
Our experience over the last 50 years has shown us that no amount of intervention in the life of a child can have lasting effects as long as the child's surroundings remain unchanged. Child Sponsorship therefore changes a child's life by changing the world to which he/she belongs.
Child sponsorship creates a network of partners, who in the long-term help build a self-reliant and sustainable community that brings out the best in every child.
A contribution of Rs.800/- per month therefore addresses issues that promote the overall development of the child. Sponsored children along with their community are helped through education, training and awareness programs, clean drinking water, agricultural assistance and health benefits.
Along with this, newer business opportunities are generated among poor families, so that someday, they can continue to provide for the coming generations, even after World Vision has left their area! Child Sponsorship is therefore a long-term commitment, and its effects are sustainable and long lasting!
As a sponsor, you get the satisfaction of being a very important part of this whole new world! You can keep in touch with your child through letters and personal visits and become a part of your child's world! Child sponsorship is therefore a long-term, meaningful relationship between you and a needy child!
