SEND YOUR HEART TO SENEGAL THIS SUMMER
Across Senegal children are waiting to learn, to play, to grow, to heal. But their chances are limited.
- When families can’t grow enough, children go hungry.
- When they can’t earn enough, they can’t afford school uniforms or medicine.
- When teachers are poorly trained and schools are overcrowded, children’s education suffers and their future choices shrink.
YOUR FRIENDSHIP CAN TRAVEL THE WORLD THIS SUMMER
But, this summer, there is hope – through a very special friendship.
When you sponsor a child, you help to transform her life, family and a whole community.
Big claims – small steps.
Through your words of encouragement and monthly donations (from just £26 a month), big changes happen – and they can last for generations.
What will your donation actually change?
Because of our community-focused solutions, for every child you help, four more children benefit, too. Depending on the priority needs in your child’s community, as a sponsor you will be improving lives by providing:
“We got a handwashing kit in school, and our teacher taught us how washing prevents diseases. Now I washing my hands with soap and water every time I go to the toilet,” says Bouré, 14.
“Many children used to suffer from malnutrition. Now children have free access to local food, they are much healthier and better nourished,” says Fatou, a nurse in Loul area.
“I go to school every day with all my friends. We are very happy to be here because we are learning to draw houses and chickens,” says Diabouyel, five.
We provide training in new skills, and support mothers to start their own businesses helping provide a stable income so children and families can have better nutrition, healthcare and greater access to education.
Watch your child grow, see their smiles, their joy, their hope – differences you will have made
Tening may one day read to her sponsor in person
This is 6 year-old Tening. Her grandmother has been helped by World Vision sponsorship since 2006 and thanks to this has been able to send her eldest daughter to school. As a child sponsor, you even get the chance to visit the child you support.
So much love to give their sponsor
Although they have very little in the way of personal possessions, the children in Senegal have so much love to give. By sponsoring children like 9 year-old Seny, you bring real hope into their lives – then you see them grow into young adults, with bright futures ahead of them.
Boubacar is able to go to school now
Life is very different for 14 year-old Boubacar now. Thanks to the support of his child sponsor, he’s thriving. He’s at school and has many friends. He loves playing football and has seen his entire community transformed with World Vision’s support.
You’re a mentor, a companion, a guide – you are hope itself
Amanda from Buckinghamshire has been sponsoring children for nearly 30 years. As well as exchanging letters with her children, she provides vital encouragement that’ll help her sponsors reach their full potential. She was able to visit one of her sponsor children and describes meeting her child as: “…the best day of my life.”
