“Experience in and of itself is not enough. Experiences have to take place in the context of relationships. Human beings are relational - we learn in the context of relationships.”
“World Vision built a school building for the children in our community. They gave me school supplies, bags, pencils, and other necessities for school … World Vision was always there for me before, and now I am one of their volunteers.”
“…what this whole entire thing is doing is empowering students…The idea here is that if we pour our gifts into people that are in need, that we can do good. But it’s not as an adult—high school kids can do it.”
“As a parent, to see your daughter become an advocate for someone thousands of miles away who she may never meet, or even experience their culture, to have her have that kind of compassion, that kind of foresight that she needs to make a difference…she taught me to look beyond [my] bubble because of her partnership with World Vision.”
"When you're actually in face-to-face with a child in severe poverty, there’s a passion within you that comes about…It all becomes real. It’s right in front of you; you can actually see it. It truly does ignite you. You form those personal connections—and you form them fast.“
“Our role not always to give suggestions or solutions, but to pray for them, to ask questions about what their situation is like, and to see how we might partner with them. I think God put different parts of the church in different parts of the world to strengthen each other, especially as we start to work together even more."
Hear students, teachers, and sponsored children talk about their experiences meeting new friends, encountering new challenges, and finding new opportunities to serve.
"Faith Lutheran Middle and High School is the first in the entire nation to partner with World Vision for a unique, immersive program...One in ten humans do not have access to water in the world, and World Vision tells us the story of a five year old girl named Cheru, who has to walk three and a half miles every day to scoop dirty water out of a hole.”
“We’re inviting the whole, entire community,” Faith Lutheran Principal Scott Fogo said. “This is not just a Faith Lutheran adoption—it’s a community of people around Las Vegas that want to join in. It changes the people in America as much as it changes those in Kenya.” Las Vegas Sun
"World Vision representatives brought a virtual reality headset so others could experience a small village in Kenya the same way the group did.” Las Vegas Review-Journal
Help create a generation of young people who are passionate about their faith and equipped to change the world.
