World Vision Mauritania Annual Report 2015

World Vision Mauritania Annual Report 2015

In 2015, World Vision has reached 32 years of service in favor of Mauritanian populations. This annual report shows you our interventionsand our achievements in partnership with international, national and local partners during financial year (FY) 2015 (October 2014 –September 2015). As you will read in this report, World Vision continues to offer programs and projects in various sectors (Education, Health, Nutrition, EconomicDevelopment, Disaster Risk Reduction) to improve the living conditions of children and their families. We implement our activities in 4 regions(Nouakchott, Brakna, Gorgol and Assaba). FY 2015 was also rich in learning for the World Vision Mauritania future strategic planning. For many years, WV Mauritania has become heavilyreliant on private sponsorship funding and on long term programming. However the reality that we are faced with today shows that the majorityof global responses are now humanitarian and targeted emergencies. This reality calls on World Vision Mauritania to also focus more on building its humanitarian and emergency response skills at all levels, and puttingin place plans, systems and tools to enable the office to be effective in its capacity to respond and to remain relevant to the rapidly changing globalcontext. Successfully integrating these elements will translate in a much greater capacity to promote Mauritanian children’s sustainable well- being in all its dimensions. Lilian DodzoNational Director
