COMMUNITY GRADUATION

From Sponsorship to Independence, and What Comes Next
How sponsorship brings independence

Each time World Vision partners with a community, we have one goal in mind: to reach the day when we're no longer needed. With the support of sponsors, we work alongside children, families and community leaders, identifying their unique challenges and developing sustainable solutions until the community is able to break free from poverty.

When that day arrives, it's a cause for celebration! Then, as World Vision transitions out of that community, we invite our sponsors to continue making a difference by sponsoring a new child from another community in need.

A community's graduation is the ultimate goal of child sponsorship. See how sponsors like you support a struggling community on their journey to independence.

Phase One

PHASE ONE

BUILD THE FOUNDATION

We partner with community members to understand their needs, goals and resources, and find long-term solution to the challenges they face.

Phase Two

PHASE TWO

EVALUATE AND GROW

We make changes as needed so the community continues to meet its goals. More community members become involved, and take ownership of their success.

Phase Three

PHASE THREE

FOCUS ON SUSTAINABILITY

Thanks to your support, families in the community enjoy better living conditions, and are empowered with the knowledge and skills to create a better futurefor their children.

Graduating and reaching independence is an exciting time. As World Vision transitions out of a community, families take pride in their ability to provide for their children and plan for the future.
