Across the world, in different contexts and in different ways, World Vision, together with partners and communities, is working towards improving the lives of children, families and communities. World Vision has developed a set of 15 child well-being outcomes (CWBOs) and aspirations to provide a practical definition of child well-being and a common language for World Vision staff.
In this Compendium you will find a broad set of indicators for measuring each of World Vision's child well-being outcomes, which can be chosen according to what is in line with the national office strategy, relevant to the programme/project objectives and appropriate for the local context. The Compendium brings together tried and tested indicators from major agencies such as UNICEF and WHO, but also innovative indicators from within World Vision or from child well-being research institutions. The Compendium will be updated annually to ensure it remains up to date and in line with current developments in measuring child well-being.
Each of the 15 child well-being outcomes comes with a supplementary Indicator Detail Sheet that lists the tools and methodologies for measuring each indicator.
