How does Chosen work?

- Upload a photo of you or you and your whole family to the link above on this landing page.

- Children in the community will have an event and be empowered to choose the photo of their own sponsor.
- We’ll send you a photo of the special child who chose you as well as a letter from your new sponsored child a few weeks later explaining why they chose you!
What happens if I pass the sign update to be chosen?

Do I get to Choose the country where a child comes from If I sign up for Chosen?
Unfortunately, you cannot choose which country your child will come from with our Chosen Sponsorship. Chosen is a new and exciting way to sponsor a child in one of our new communities. World Vision selects these new communities based on where help is most needed, often influenced by where poverty is greatest, as well as looking for areas that are under-served by other organizations.
