How Child Sponsorship Works

Sponsoring a child with World Vision India is one of the most effective, inspiring and rewarding ways to help children. You’ll be doing much more than helping to meet children’s basic needs – you’ll be helping to equip them for life. By bringing about lasting change in your sponsored child’s community, you’ll also be improving the lives of many other vulnerable children.

While addressing the immediate needs of children, child sponsorship aims at empowering families and communities to build a healthy and safe environment in which their children can grow and thrive.

Here’s how sponsors like you support a community on their journey towards independence. World Vision India works in a community for a period of 13 to 15 years until the community is able to sustain themselves.

1-3 Years: Planning and Consultation

We network and collaborate with local groups and community-based organisations, build rapport and assess the needs and strengths of individuals and groups. We then find long-term solutions to the challenges they face.

4-8 Years: Building Skills and Confidence

The skills and potentials of children, families, institutions and groups are tapped and honed, so they start taking a lead in the project activities.


9-12 Years: Building Hope

By this time, there is a generation that can stand for their rights, that is empowered, healthy and educated. We see the visible fruits of transformation and parents and communities embrace changes for children’s well-being. The community is equipped with resources they will need for economic sustainability.

13-15 Years: Sustainable Impact

The community members are equipped and empowered for the future. They take ownership of their own development and ensure they carry forward the good work.
