Enjoy good health
World Vision works to ensure children’s health improve with access to right nutrition, and improved hygiene and sanitation practices. Projects in Area Development Programmes (ADP) have enhanced health and nutrition practices of children and monitored their growth; promoted safe motherhood with trained health workers and upgraded Early Childhood Development centres. ADPs have been successful in delivering parenting education and community awareness of child development, care, and protection, as well as birth registration. Children are also protected from common diseases like diarrhea with the construction of household toilets and water supply schemes.
Educated for Life
World Vision recognises the right to education and believes that all children have a right to compulsory, free, inclusive, and quality primary education in the communities where they live. WVIN reaffirms the right of a child to education by promoting a child-friendly learning environment, child rights, quality teaching; inclusive education for girls, Dalits, and ethnic minorities; early childhood care and development, and capacity-building – technical and management. Government schools are promoted as child-friendly schools with improved capacity of teachers, management committees and upgraded physical facilities. Through community discussions and parents’ groups, World Vision is encouraging parents to value education for their children, helping them to see the benefits of finishing school, especially for girls.
Experience love of God & neighbours
World Vision helps communities initiate agricultural cooperatives, greenhouses, and establish kitchen gardens to help families connect more with their world in a positive way while helping to generate income. World Vision has strengthened child clubs and involved communities in school management advocating for children to enjoy positive relationships with their peers, family, and community members. Through activities such as life skills training in schools, World Vision also encourages children’s hope and vision for the future. To help children and their families value their environment, community based sanitation schemes are promoted and villages are declared open defecation free areas with the support of World Vision. World Vision also works to ensure that communities and children have information about how to access services and resources allocated by the government and works to strengthen the policies related to them so that children can grow in an environment that recognizes their freedom.
Cared for, protected and participating
Towards ensuring that children are cared for, protected, and participating, World Vision raises parents awareness on improved child rearing practices, improved farming and livestock keeping practices and supports extra-curricular activities in schools. Community skills on rescue and relief are also promoted alongside understanding on disasters. Farmers are trained on commercial farming, animal husbandry and post harvest technology and vocational skills in plumbing, sewing, driving are also provided to landless and disadvantaged people so that families have more income to care for children. Children have also given opportunities to participate in community development and are benefiting from various extracurricular activities like sports, dance, music, leadership development in school and child clubs with the support of World Vision.
