You can help children in the Pacific and South East Asia to grow and thrive. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade (MFAT) has partnered with your donations through World Vision to form a five year strategic partnership. This partnership, WOVEN, aims to strengthen the wellbeing of the most vulnerable children, working in targeted locations across the Pacific and South-East Asia to end violence, break the poverty cycle with economic empowerment, and improve nutrition.
Every $1 you donate can grow to $4 thanks to our partnership with the New Zealand Aid Programme across Asia and the Pacific.
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.
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.
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.
Through the savings group in his village, Joel has been able to provide for his wife Eunice, daughter Helen and grandson Jebes.
Members learn about setting aside money for the future, gender equality and ending family violence. With your help entire villages can be transformed.
"I've witnessed first-hand how our savings group members' lives have changed. I'm personally so grateful for the training too. I'm a changed man," says Joel, a grandfather and local savings group chairperson in Papua New Guinea.
"In such a short time, I've seen a lot of transformation in my village," he says.
Today you can help farmers like Joel make a difference for their future.
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.
