HOW THEY CAN HELP
With your commitment you show solidarity with the most disadvantaged people in the world. Our projects start where help is needed most urgently. We help people to help themselves. Support us in this:
A child sponsorship changes lives: for the children, their families and the whole region.
Their support helps people in their environment sustainably and creates perspectives for the development of an entire region.
As a childhood savior, you protect children from violence in situations such as war, disaster, child labour and child abuse.
In emergencies and disasters such as wars, earthquakes, droughts or floods, World Vision provides rapid, unbureaucratic emergency aid, supports reconstruction and implements preventive measures.
With your unrestricted and one-time donation you contribute to children and their families being able to live in dignity.

Questions & Answers
+ Where will my donation go?
We advocate a multisectoral approach that not only solves the current problems, but also tackles the causes of poverty in a long-term and sustainable manner. With your donation we implement vital projects in the areas of water + hygiene, health + nutrition, education + children’s rights as well as for the economic development of a region. For example, we provide clean water, healthy nutrition and health care, school materials and teacher training. But we also promote sustainable agriculture and support people setting up in business.
+ What effect will my donation have?
Through the regular reports from the sponsorship projects or the updates from the disaster areas, you, as a donor of World Vision Switzerland, can see concretely what your donation will achieve. Our effectiveness report and the annual reports provide additional transparency regarding the use of donations.
