Q:How does World Vision know children need assistance? 

A: World Vision works in the most needy communities of a country, usually siutated in poor and remote areas. After performing baseline assessments, field surveys and home visits, the most vulnerable children are identified by community leaders and World Vision staff to participate in the sponsorship program. Community leaders and residents are also invited to participate in exploring the needs as well as the solution to the difficulties they face. The target for improvement has to be worked out through the partnership of World Vision the communities we work in, including women and children.
Q:How is my sponsored child benefiting from my monthly contribution? 

A: The sponsorship money you send is pooled with the contributions of donors who also sponsor children in the same community as your child. Your support enables World Vision to give children access to education, health care, spiritual care, and food. Sponsorship funds are also used to help families learn new skills and help them find ways to build sustainable livelihoods. Learn more.
