Temporary Junior Sponsorship Assistant - Tram Tau, Yen Bai
WVV’s Area Development Programs focus within one administrative district of a province which usually populated by ethnic minority people with very high rates of poverty. ADPs are mainly funded by sponsorship funds, and are a phased approach to development, involving clear and consistent assessment, design, implement, reporting, monitoring and evaluation and reflection phases. Each ADP is tailored to the needs of a specific community in alignment with WVV’s strategic priorities. WVV works closely with district and commune local authorities and local partners to implement program activities.
Each ADP usually has one ADP manager, one Finance staff, one Sponsorship staff and 3 to 5 other staff who are in charge of Monitoring and Evaluation, Capacity Building, and sectoral projects such as Education, Health, Agriculture and Livelihood etc. A uniqueness of WVV’s ADP approach and structure is that all ADP team members are based at the district where the ADP is located, which enables them to work closely with government partners and communities on a daily basis.
World Vision child sponsorship enhances the quality of World Vision’s transformation development and public awareness ministries by providing sponsors, children, and their families and communities with a service that allows sharing of other resources, hopes and experiences in a way that it can transform both. Child sponsorship provides the majority of resources for transformational development. Therefore, child sponsorship is a required core competency of World Vision.
Reflecting Christ’s love for children, World Vision child sponsorship creates a special relationship between children, their families and communities, and sponsors that contribute to the transformation of all toward the wholeness of life with dignity, justice, peace and hope.
