Child Protection ReportProgress Report: Fiscal Year 2017 (October 2016 to September 2017)

In the past year, our projects empowered children to protect themselves through life skills education, training, and peer support groups. We helped vulnerable children to enroll and remain in school by reducing the financial strain on families. As children gained leadership skills, they became advocates for preventing the abuse of children.

Thank you for your faithful support.

Child ProtectionProgress Report: Fiscal Year 2016 (October 1, 2015 to September 30, 2016)

Through our work in Armenia, Bangladesh, Cambodia, Kenya, and Mozambique, we are changing the attitudes and behaviors that put children at risk. It is challenging work. It takes time. But our mission could not be closer to the heart of God—because it is His precious children we are protecting.

Thank you for being part of these efforts in fiscal year 2016. This report celebrates the progress we made together. Please pray for continuing safety and healing for children who have been hurt. We ask God to help us reach even more children this year.

E-FACEWorld Vision just completed the Ethiopians Fighting Against Child Exploitation (E-FACE) project, funded by the United States Department of Labor, to provide support to the country in addressing child labor. The primary focus centers on education aimed at sustainably reducing the number of children aged 5-17 years old engaged in and at risk of child labor in the weaving, agricultural, and other sectors in Gamo Gofa, Wolaita, and Addis Ababa. The project addressed the needs of over 20,000 children at-risk of and engaged in child labor with education services and over 7,000 households who have children at-risk of or engaged in child labor with better access to profitable markets and credit. Notably, the percent of E-FACE children involved in child labor decreased from 85% to 1.4% over three years, and the enrollment rate of these children increased from 64% to 95.1% over the same time period.  This infographic highlights key impact over the life of the project.
