WHERE THE FUNDS GO
Funds raised will support World Vision’s community development work in the countries below, providing children and families with Health & Nutrition, Livelihoods and Water, Sanitation & Hygiene (WASH) assistance. This includes:
Improving access to positive behaviour change trainings among parents, pregnant women and caregivers for child and parental well-being, e.g. reading skills and nutritious feeding
Increasing knowledge of and access to water, sanitation and hygiene facilities among children to prevent diarrhoea, e.g. toilets and handwashing spaces
Improving the capacity of Savings Groups; providing training to farmer groups on livelihood related disaster risk reduction steps such as climate-smart agriculture practices
Increasing access to and use of safe and sustainable water among vulnerable communities and schoolchildren, and sensitising the community on safe household water treatment
