How we tackle poverty in Africa
World Vision UK has been working to help tackle the root causes of child poverty in Africa since the early 1980s, working with individual communities to address their unique challenges together. This work is made possible by people like you who choose to support a child and their community.
Child Sponsorship gives you the chance to protect and empower the most vulnerable children in Africa and make sure their community becomes thriving and self-sufficient.
We work together with communities to tackle the root causes of poverty. We talk with local leaders and families to understand their struggles and the areas where they most need support - like access to reliable, clean sources of water, training on agricultural practices, microloans to get businesses off the ground, or resources to help children receive education to transform their futures.
