WASH and Child Well-Being
World Vision’s community-based development approach addresses needs holistically, -- addressing physical, social and spiritual needs through multi-sectoral programming intersecting with key cross-cutting themes. The ultimate goal of all of World Vision’s work is child well-being. Child well-being at World Vision is defined by the following four targets:
- Children enjoy good health.
- Children are educated for life.
- Children experience the love of God and their neighbours
- Children are cared for, protected and participating.
WASH is essential to sustaining this work. WASH is only one aspect of sustainable development, but without WASH there can be no sustainable development.
