Why World Vision is in Jerusalem/West Bank/Gaza
Progress in Jerusalem/West Bank/Gaza
Thanks to the generous support of donors, we’re making great progress toward the well-being of children and their families.
Child Protection and Care
Boys and girls are safe and valued, well cared for by their families, and participating in their communities as agents of transformation.
- Leadership training empowered students to advocate for their rights and voice their concerns in the community.
- To keep children safe at home, mothers and fathers learned new parenting skills and the importance of positive discipline.
Healthy Children and Families
Children and families are well nourished, protected from infection and disease, and have access to essential health services.
- Mothers were given the support they need to care for their children and help keep them healthy. Community health workers made home visits in several communities to teach mothers ways to support their child's development and health.
- Children are empowered to care for their health after learning about the importance of hygiene, nutrition, and exercise habits.
Education for Better Lives
Children have opportunities to learn and to develop their talents, young people are equipped for the future, and families and communities support children's education.
- Teachers and students are better prepared for emergencies after participating in disaster training.
