Samlot's Community News

Thanks to the generous support of donors, we’re making great progress toward the well-being of children and their families. These are a few of the areas we focused on in the past year: 2017

Children are learning and preparing for a better future. When World Vision began partnering with this community, there were many concerns about education. Schools were crowded and teachers lacked the training they needed. Many families couldn't afford school fees. Today, children are empowered with the tools they need to create a different future for themselves.

Your sponsorship helped to ensure: 97% increase in enrollment thanks to raising awareness about the importance of education 340 teachers, 35 school directors and 315 school committee members are improving education quality 38 schools were renovated with safe water, latrines, desks and learning materials.
  • 2 community groups are engaging with local authorities to advance their rights and create positive changes for children
  • 130 children and youth are improving their learning through tutoring and extracurricular activities like clubs and camps
  • 26 clubs are in place for children and youth to improve their learning through tutoring and extracurricular activities               
  • 908 children and adults are members of savings groups, helping families meet their financial needs and access small loans
  • 23 savings groups are helping children and adults save money and access loans to grow businesses or cover basic expenses
Today, the community has transitioned from sponsorship to self-sufficiency. Local people and organizations have been equipped to take over and lead the community's development - and that is something to celebrate!
