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 2019, the community has transitioned from sponsorship to self-sufficiency and World Vision is no longer on site. Local people and organizations have been equipped to take over and lead the community's development - and that is something to celebrate!

With the help of your generous and loving support, life in A Hi Kulene has transformed. Children and families are much stronger now. The community has met its goals, and its members are working together to tackles new ones. Your support will have a lasting impact for years to come.

A Hi Kulene is located about 270 km from Maputo, Mozambique's capital city. In the local tongue, A Hi Kulene translates to "Let's go ahead," which is exactly what the community has done.

Before your partnership, classrooms were crumbling and children were forced to study outside. Illiteracy rates were high and teachers lacked key resources. Pregnant women often went without health care and infectious diseases were common because of dirty, unsafe water. Farmers struggled to improve their income and needed access better tools, microloans and saving services.

Now, new classrooms, health facilities, wells and community groups in combination with training and resources have transformed daily life. Thanks to the generosity of Canadian sponsors like you, life in A Hi Kulene has improved. Children and families have grown stronger and are working together to overcome their challenges. Your support has opened doors that will have a lasting impact for years to come.
