In the Nawada community, most people belong to the Mushar group, a formerly untouchable caste without access to resources or agricultural land. 

Families here are forced to seek other ways to earn money, including child labour and early marriage. 

Living conditions are difficult for boys and girls; access to quality education is poor, especially for girls. There is a poor understanding of preventing diseases such as diarrhoea, malaria and pneumonia. 

Partnering together for a sustainable future.

By sponsoring children in Nawada community, you are making an incredible difference in vulnerable children’s lives.

Your support is helping Nawada community by improving the physical, emotional, spiritual and social well-being of the most vulnerable children.

Through decades of experience, we have proven that the most effective way to help a child is to strengthen their entire community, caring for every child along the way. In fact, because of these community-focused solutions, for every child you sponsor, 4 more benefit too!

Together, we are tackling the hard problems, such as changing mindsets and behaviours to address the root causes of poverty. We're focusing on building skills, hope and opportunity for the children of Nawada community.

Your support is making a life-changing impact for children in Nawada.

"Now, the parents in my village encourage their daughters to get an education. My experience has inspired me to help others. One day, I will surely be a teacher.– Sonali (16)


"Before, I suffered from stomach infections and diarrhoea, and it was affecting my growth. World Vision taught us how to wash our hands properly, and now I am healthy."– Raju (15), pictured left


"We participated in the kitchen garden programme and learned to grow our own vegetables. During the COVID-19 lockdown, we did not lack healthy food, thanks to our garden." – Puja, mother pictured left

“It would take us an hour to fetch water, and it wasn’t safe to do it at night. With the new tube well and water filters, our village now has good access to safe drinking water.”

Banyan Tree

The Banyan Tree is the national tree of India.

As the national tree, the Banyan or Indian Fig Tree is a symbol of pride that's integral to the nation's identity. For centuries the banyan tree has been a central point for the village communities of India. Even today, the banyan tree is the focal point of village life, and the village council meets under the shade of this tree. 

Its branches root themselves like new trees giving rise to more trunks and branches. Because of this characteristic, the tree is considered immortal and plays a significant role in myths and legends of India.

The tree is often a symbol of the fabled 'Kalpa Vriksha' or the 'Tree of Wish Fulfilment'. It is associated with longevity because it has important medicinal properties.
