Strengthening child wellbeing

We are partnering with the New Zealand Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade to strengthen child wellbeing.

Tui Tuia te Oranga | To weave wellbeing

World Vision and MFAT have come together to form a strategic partnership over five years. This partnership, WOVEN, aims to strengthen the wellbeing of the most vulnerable children in targeted locations of the Pacific and South-East Asia by working with families and communities.

Building on a 15-year history of World Vision and MFAT working together across Asia and the Pacific, the WOVEN Programme will reach 6000 children and their families in Papua New Guinea, the Solomon Islands, Vanuatu, Laos and Timor Leste.

Together, we're tackling systemic development problems that disproportionately affect the most vulnerable children: violence, malnutrition and deprivation. This includes addressing barriers that exclude those who are marginalised, including harmful social norms, gendered inequalities and environmental factors.

Partnering together for long-term sustainable change to strengthen children's wellbeing.

<h4>Children are protected from violence.</h4>

Children are protected from violence.

Family-based violence affects the wellbeing of the most vulnerable children across Asia and the Pacific. Together, we're working with communities to establish a supportive environment where children can feel safe, pursue their potential and thrive.

<h4>Families can meet their basic needs.</h4>

Families can meet their basic needs.

Caregivers of the most vulnerable children often lack enough income to meet their children's basic needs. Together, we're strengthening families' capacity to provide food, shelter, clothing, healthcare and schooling for their children.

<h4>Children's nutrition is improved.</h4>

Children's nutrition is improved.

Alarming rates of malnutrition across Asia and the Pacific is inhibiting healthy development for the most vulnerable children. Together, we're working with families to teach them to improve nutrition and dietary diversity, ensuring children grow up healthy.
