Rolling Out "Chosen" In Child Sponsorship as a means of Enhancing the Child's Voice

In 2019, World Vision Zambia launched an initiative called 'Chosen'. As opposed to having donor sponsors choosing children to be sponsored, under 'Chosen', children that are registered in the World Vision Programme participate in choosing who would be their sponsors. This implies that 'Chosen' puts the power to select sponsors in children's hands.

This Technical Brief highlights how 'Chosen' has enhanced children's voices in securing sponsorship for community development.
