Why World Vision is in Mauritania
We never give up on people
With so much happening around the world, it can be hard to decide where your money can have the greatest impact. With your help through the Where Most Needed fund, we can respond quickly to urgent needs of the world's most vulnerable children and families. And, thanks to grant funds and donated products, your monthly gifts multiply 4 times in impact.
Progress in Mauritania
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.
- About 900 children took part in child protection activities where they were empowered with strategies to keep themselves and others safe.
Healthy Children and Families
Children and families are well nourished, protected from infection and disease, and have access to essential health services.
- Families were provided with cleaning kits to help protect against COVID-19.
- Faith leaders were trained to help their communities stay safe from COVID-19 using resources and educational materials provided by World Vision.
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.
- More children are accessing pre-school after World Vision helped community leaders establish more preschools and train more teachers.
- 70 education officials were trained to establish and maintain literacy groups in their communities so that children have access to tutoring for reading and writing.
