WHAT WILL I BE?
Where poverty means
hunger and no school
what choice is there?
Soldier? Child Bride?
I AM MADE FOR MORE
Give children the chance
to be more – today
WHAT’S KAPINGA’S REALITY?
13-year-old Kapinga lives in the Democratic Republic of Congo’s conflict zone.
Her father died, she’s not in school anymore and her grandmother struggles to feed the family even once a day.
Children like Kapinga are growing up without choices, vulnerable to false promises of a better life – and a meal a day.
The reality, though, is abuse, armed militia, child exploitation and violence.
But we believe they’re made for more
“I met some incredible young people whose stories will stay with me forever. Young girls who were snatched by armed groups and forced into slavery. They’re made to witness atrocities, and to carry out acts themselves. They knew that if they refused, they might be beaten and whipped or raped… It’s like the worst type of horror story – but this is part of our reality.”
Game of Thrones actor, Jerome Flynn, recently saw first-hand how World Vision is helping children in South Sudan, through rehabilitation, counselling and food distribution. They've already experienced awful abuse - but children, like Kapinga, don't have to.
IT BEGINS WITH YOU
Children like Kapinga don’t have time to wait – they need another choice today. With your help, we can protect them from a life of violence and despair.
Every 60 seconds a hungry child is fed, another family receive the tools to overcome poverty -
thanks to the work of World Vision with communities and families.
We’ve specialised in transforming the lives of children in the most vulnerable of communities across the world for nearly 70 years.
And we know that when we work together, we can protect children.
Help us strengthen communities and families by supporting education, family incomes and communities to ensure the safety and bright futures of children.
