Working With Children in Indonesia


 

Coronavirus (COVID-19) impact on World Vision operations

In support of public health recommendations outlined by the World Health Organization, some sponsorship program activities have been temporarily suspended due to COVID-19. Activities may include sponsor queries and correspondence, sponsor visits, gift notifications and gift deliveries. These temporary suspensions may affect the information you receive from us in the coming weeks and months. Learn more about our response to COVID-19.
In 2015, a report from UNICEF showed that child mortality rates had significantly dropped in Indonesia. Improvements were attributed to the work of many development agencies, including World Vision. These agencies have partnered to upgrade health for children by providing immunizations, treating childhood diseases and encouraging breastfeeding for the first six months of a child’s life.

Ensuring children in Indonesia are safe and cared for continues to be a focus for World Vision. Abuse, bullying and gender-based violence threaten millions of boys and girls in this island nation. Our work includes teaching children, teachers, faith leaders and parents about children’s rights and ensuring that systems are in place to report and stop cases of abuse.
