Working With Children in Pakistan

World Vision has been supporting children in Pakistan who find themselves in emergency relief situations since 2005, responding to floods, earthquakes and the needs of internally displaced people in the country.

Working with the Government of Canada and individuals’ support, we are currently focused on maternal and child health, water and sanitation, access to quality education and building people’s resilience through disaster risk reduction programs and economic development. Innovative programming includes equipping teachers, parents and children themselves to respond to psychosocial needs of young people experiencing violence or abuse, and the use of mobile phone technology to further health services in remote areas.
