Chosen in Churches

Chosen™ is a new invitation to Child Sponsorship, where for the first time, the power to choose is in a child's hands.

Not only can individual members of your church begin a life changing connection with a child in some of the most fragile contexts on earth, but together your congregation can help lift an entire community out of poverty.

Already many churches across New Zealand have experienced the transformational impact of participating in Chosen™ with World Vision.
