There are several ways to do this by mailing, emailing, or printing out the card yourself. Be sure to click "yes" for cards during checkout.

- An estimated 70 percent of the world’s out-of-school children live in sub-Saharan Africa or South and West Asia.

How does World Vision support education in its international work?
World Vision works to educate the world's children, youth, and adults to help break cycles of illiteracy and poverty that can last for generations. We offer two types of learning opportunities in our education projects: formal and non-formal.
Formal education takes place in a school setting and uses curriculum-based lessons to teach children in all grades. Non-formal education is community-based and may include adult learning programs, children and youth life skills development, and other learning experiences that include topics such as HIV awareness and health education.
How does World Vision Child Sponsorship help children access education?
Education is an important part of Child Sponsorship. Monthly donations by sponsors help sponsored children gain access to education so they can develop knowledge and skills to support them in reaching their God-given potential. Sponsorship donations also help children access resources like clean water, better nutrition, basic health care, spiritual nurture, and economic development opportunities for their families, the community, and other children in need.
Does World Vision support education for children in the U.S.?
Yes, for example, through the Teacher Resource Centers located across the US, World Vision provides new school supplies to educators teaching in low-income neighborhoods where at least 70 percent of the students qualify for free or reduced price school lunches. Educators visiting our Teacher Resource Center stock up on learning tools and classroom supplies, better equipping their students to learn—and helping to level the playing field. World Vision also annually provides backpacks stuffed with school supplies to children in back-to-school events, helping students get off to a strong start.
