In Impoverished Communities, Sponsoring A Child Brings Hope To Others As Well
In developing countries or developed countries, every child gets access to education. Some have made it mandatory for children to attend school. Why is this so important? Some prefer that children should be let to play and have a memorable childhood. Some prefer investing in children’s education, up to burdening the child with expectations. But there are some children, born into poverty do not get to go to school. Admittedly, it may take a village to bring up a child, but a formal education brings forth more benefit for the child and his or her community. Community development is as vital as a child’s development. The environment where a child grows will impact their progress in the long run. Thus, communities must be comprehensive in every aspect of life. It is to ensure children of these communities will benefit from it and grow up to become responsible and sensible adults. Many organisations in the world assist with community development, but World Vision advocates for children in community development. In Singapore, most children have access to basic needs. Hence, World Vision Singapore desires for all children of South East Asia to receive similar basic needs and be happy living as children should.
Children As The Future
If we desire for a better future, we should look at the children of today. Whatever mould we shape them in today, will be a foretelling of what the future is. When one says that our future is doomed, it is because we rely on our current policies too much. What we should do instead is prepare the right fundamental for our children. That said, a child could not lead if not led the right way. Children look up to adults as models. As such, the community where a child resides should be exemplary for the child to follow suit. With globalisation and technology providing unlimited access to information, we have to protect and educate our children.
Better Child, Better World
World Vision is an international organisation that provides relief, development and advocacy to children, families and communities worldwide. The aim: help them reach their full potential by tackling the causes of poverty and injustice. Some people see that poverty runs in the family. But that perception must be changed. No matter what condition a family or community is going through, hardship is not an excuse. World Vision Singapore believes that wealth can be accumulated through proper education and providing the right foundation. A child equipped with knowledge can help its community rise out of poverty. As such, it hopefully creates a ripple effect on neighbouring cities. An impoverished family can only do so much to ensure a child gets an education. The public at large, from anywhere in the world, can lend a hand in such a situation. Sponsor a child is a programme that is focusing on children development in a community. One may become a child sponsor through World Vision Singapore.

A sponsor’s contribution will benefit four more children as the World Vision programme is community-focused. Programmes like these ensure sustainable changes for underprivileged children, hence, a step to create a lasting transformation in their life and their future.
