Girls deserve to live free from fear. It’s their right.

Right now, girls urgently need sponsors. You can help them build a fearless future

Girls all over the world are being forced into violent realities. Their rights are being unjustly violated.

But they don’t need your pity – they need your anger and your support. We are calling on the people of Ireland to sponsor 100 girls.

Child sponsorship programmes partner with children, families and communities to overcome obstacles, challenge gender inequalities and give girls back their rights.

The issues facing girls around the world

Millions of girls and women live in fear of violence - just because they are girls. 

We know also that there is a stark reality where all women and girls live with some element of fear in their lives.

Child sponsorship enables programmes that work to change social norms, guide and educate communities - including men and boys - to help create a world where everyone enjoys their rights and decides what their future should look like. 

In the places where we work

Because of our community-focused solutions, for every child you help, four more children benefit too!

What sponsored children say

Dassari was 15 when she first received a letter from her sponsor, Angie.

Child sponsorship gave Dassari the chance to discover her passions, face some of her fears, and learn how to become a force of positive change for other girls in her community. 

Dassari is now 21 and works as a school teacher in her hometown. She's grateful to have had the opportunity to help other girls unlock their potential by sharing share some of the World Vision training and support that she received years ago.

"Thanks to Angie I was sponsored, I had my trainings and now I am a person with values and principles."

It's her right

Help us sponsor 100 girls by March 8th, International Women's Day to help girls around the world live lives free of fear.

  • All of World Vision's work begins with listening to communities in need. Community leaders work with us to identify the most vulnerable children and families who will benefit from Child Sponsorship.

  • We work with national governments and other international agencies to identify the regions and communities that are most in need and where the most vulnerable children live. We then meet with community leaders and the wider community to gain a greater understanding of the challenges and the opportunities that exist for them and we develop a long-term plan together, to break the cycle of poverty.
