In Uganda, at least 66% of its population, especially people in rural areas, do not have access to clean water and sanitation facilities, resulting in poor hygiene and sanitation. Children are vulnerable to various water-borne diseases by drinking from contaminated water source.
Support a WASH (Water, Sanitation and Hygiene) project which began in June 2015 to improve communities' access to clean water and sanitation facilities in Buikwe Sub County. You can help construct boreholes, latrines and provide hygiene training classes to community members.
World Vision helped build latrines for students at a school.
At a primary school, a rainwater harvesting tank collects rainwater and provides clean water for students.
Community members fetch water from the new borehole.
Children enjoy learning at an ECD centre.
In Afghanistan, children are not receiving formal education until the age of 7 to 10. Before that, there is little opportunity for children to experience early stimulation, learn basic literacy, numeracy, and foundational skills. Providing Early Childhood Development (ECD) to young children will stimulate their early development and improve their school readiness skills that they may learn and perform better when entering primary education.
Fund an ECD project started in January 2016 to support children age 5 to 6 to learn basic literacy, numeracy and foundational skills. Besides establishing creative learning environment, parents and caretakers will be equipped to provide learning support, and community will be more engaged in the holistic development of children.
Somalia has the highest malnutrition rate in the world. In the Godobjiraan district, 13,000 of its 65,000 population are children under the age of five that will need attention for their nutritional status. The Global Acute Malnutrition rate of Godobjiraan district is at serious to critical level due to food insecurity caused by prolonged drought, limited food diversity and poor feeding habits of children.
The Godobjiraan Nutrition Project commenced in October 2015 with the goal to reduce the mortality and morbidity rate of children under-five through improving their nutritional status and to prevent malnutrition among children in the community through enhancing feeding practices and long-term household resilience.
Through the Positive Deviance/Hearth approach, mothers learn to prepare nutritious food using locally available ingredients.
Plumpy’nut, a ready-to-use therapeutic food, makes home-based treatment possible and can help acutely malnourished children recover quickly.
