Muchila Community News

Our constant endeavor is to impact lives where we can be most effective. As we assess our focus in various areas of the world where we work, we have identified communities in far greater need than Muchila. For this reason, Canadian sponsorship in Muchila is ending. Thank you for the strong foundation you’ve helped lay in this community!

Thanks to the generous support of donors, we have accomplished the following in the past year:

     Child Protection

  • 55 teachers learned child-friendly teaching methods to improve the quality of education for children
  • 2 schools were renovated to create a safer and stimulating learning environment for students
  • 150 sets of teaching resources like stories were developed locally so children can learn from culturally relevant content
  • 2,227 children are getting extra help to improve their reading and writing through camps and classes


  • 346 adults received vocational, business and finance training, improving their opportunities to earn a steady income

As World Vision redirects its focus on communities in greater need, would you consider sponsoring a child in another part of the world?
