World Vision is working in nearly 100 countries to protect children.
Sponsorship is one of the most powerful ways to fight poverty.
Extreme poverty makes children vulnerable.
More than 85 children worldwide are subjected to the worst forms of child labor, including trafficking and hazardous physical labor.
"A child is worth saving.
A childhood is worth saving.
A childhood is something you only get once, and once it's gone, it's gone."
World Vision is rescuing children from sexual exploitation and harmful child labor.
They are empowering children and parents and this empowerment is breaking the cycle of sexual trafficking and child labor.
World Vision is giving a voice to the most vulnerable and is helping children escape a life of slavery.
We spent several days in the community of Buliisa, Uganda where the children shared with us their stories of abuse. Children were thankful for the work that World Vision was doing in their community to not only empower them to speak up for themselves, but that they were educating their parents and caregivers that this cycle of abuse needed to stop.
There are mothers and fathers who are praying every day for a better life for their children.
They are searching for a hero.
Won't you consider child sponsorship?
