Children empowered at first Chosen™ event in Sierra Leone
The days, months, and years of waiting and wondering for Mariama, Mohamed, and 33 of their peers to see whether they will be chosen by a sponsor are over. Thanks to World Vision's Chosen™ initiative, they’re the ones who got to choose.

World Vision’s agile digital solutions help deliver innovative healthcare support in Sierra Leone
World Vision has introduced effective and cost-efficient digital innovations to aid the healthcare system, lauded by H.E. President Dr. Julius Maada Bio. We're collaborating with Government to deploy digital health solutions for accelerating progress towards achieving SDG 3 for healthy lives and wellbeing at all ages.
Children in Sierra Leone face many obstacles including poverty and high rates of preventable diseases to survive. Additionally, the 11-year bloody civil war (which ended in 2002), devastating Ebola outbreak and the current effects of climate have left an already poor population much more vulnerable.
Our team has been working in Sierra Leone since 1996, during the civil war. We partner with local actors and the Government to improve the well-being of all children.
Through our work in 25 Area Development Programs, we are striving to improve the health and nutrition, access to education and protection of all children as we empower families and communities to care for the most vulnerable children.

Julius Maada Wonie Bio, made a pronouncement to protect the life and liberty of Women and Girls by declaring a National State of Emergence on rape and sexual violence.
Think equal, build smart
