Girls are born with the same God-given rights as boys. Sadly, traditions, culture and difficult circumstances often steal that right from girls. 

Child Sponsorship programmes partner with children, families and communities to overcome obstacles, challenge gender inequalities and give girls girl's 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, 21.

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."
