Tui Tuia te Oranga | To weave wellbeing

In the Pacific and South East Asia, the social fabric that protects children is fraying, worn thin by poverty, disasters and the impact of COVID-19.

You can help weave well-being for children. Through WOVEN, you can protect them from the aftershocks of the pandemic and help them to grow and thrive.

WOVEN is a five-year partnership with the New Zealand Aid Programme, focused on helping children and families in the Pacific and South East Asia to overcome violence, malnutrition and poverty. Through our work together, we’re empowering families and helping them to grow stronger.

Reach malnourished children before it’s too late.

<br>Reach malnourished children before it’s too late.

The Pacific and Timor-Leste region have some of the world’s highest rates of stunting. It has lifelong impacts on a child’s health and learning. Stunting can’t be reversed beyond age 2, but it can be prevented.

You can reach children before it’s too late, with growth monitoring to find kids who need help and education programmes to teach parents about nutrition. “I’m happy to learn that children under 6 months have to be fed only milk. I will apply this to my way of feeding my 4-month-old son from now on,” says Mrs Ahyruen, a mum from Laos.

You’ll also train families to raise livestock and grow vegetables, so they can stop stunting for good.

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.

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.

Help farmers like Joel save for the future and save their families.

<br>Help farmers like Joel save for the future and save their families.

Thanks to the savings group in his village, Joel can support his wife Eunice, daughter Helen and grandson Jebes. Members learn about saving for the future, gender equality and ending family violence. With your help families can be transformed.

"I've witnessed first-hand how our members' lives have changed. I'm so grateful. I'm a changed man too," says Joel, a savings group chairperson in Papua New Guinea.

The savings group helped change Joel’s heart towards his family, who were afraid of him and living away from home. “If the savings groups hadn’t come, I don’t think I’d be here today with Eunice, Helen and Jebes as a family,” Joel says.

You can help farmers like Joel change their lives for good.

Standing together with children in need.

WOVEN builds on a 15-year history of World Vision and the New Zealand Aid Programme working together across Asia and the Pacific.

With your help, the programme will reach 6,000 children and their families in Papua New Guinea, the Solomon Islands, Vanuatu, Laos and Timor Leste.

Together, we're tackling deep-seated issues that cause vulnerable children to suffer disproportionately – poverty, malnutrition and violence. This includes addressing harmful social norms, gender inequality and environmental factors that force children into the margins of society.

And because of our partnership, every $1 you donate will grow to $4 to protect and care for our region’s most vulnerable children.
