The overall goal of World Vision’s Somalia Programme is enhancing the resilient well-being of 2 million children and their communities. To achieve this goal, a set of four strategic objectives were set.
- Strengthened peace and protection of children from abuse and all forms of violence
- Improved and resilient livelihoods and food security for child well-being
- Improved Health, Nutrition and WASH (water, sanitation and hygiene) for children, women and families and
- Improved quality of Education and Life skills for children and youth and resilient livelihoods and food security for child well-being.
In our 2019 fiscal year (October 2018 - September 2019), we reached 4,032,072. The total reach in this case is defined as the number of children and adults who have been reached either directly or indirectly by World Vision interventions across all sectors of our programme.
The majority (2,499,884) of the total reach were female; representing 62% of our primary beneficiaries. The number of children reached was estimated at 1,768,662; representing 44% of the overall reached population.
Children in this context are defined as boys and girls below the age of 18 that have been reached by World Vision’s programme interventions in the country. The proportion of girls among children was higher compared to that of boys.
