World Vision’s Programs

World Vision’s various programs are effective because they are completely inclusive and comprehensive in what they do. For example, its education programs operate to ensure that affected children receive the quality education which will improve their life outcomes and future career opportunities. The NGO accomplishes this by offering these children remedial education courses and programs, improved infrastructure to create a better and higher quality learning environment, and stronger school management committees to ensure that qualified, competent, and caring teachers are imparting quality education that children find useful. World Vision has implemented this program at the grass roots community level, and works in tandem with various other organizations, and the government to ensure that children are rehabilitated as quickly as possible.

Malnutrition is a common problem and theme affecting children impacted by natural disasters, especially if they already hail from poor, underdeveloped, and disadvantaged areas.

World Vision has responded through the creation of various programs which work in tandem with other organizations and the government. The main focus of these programs is on pregnant women, mothers, and children under age five because of their acute and specialized nutritional needs. World Vision has established nutrition counseling, emergency feeding programs, nutrition gardens, health training centers, and infrastructure at child care centers, which are also referred to as Anganwadis.

Women and girls in India are much more adversely affected by the aftermath of natural disasters than boys and men. World Vision recognizes this and has established programs which work with the girls and womens’ families and their greater communities to eliminate any negative cultural attitudes towards girls and women which may still exist, and to strengthen their roles in society to ensure that their status in society also improves. These programs encourage the education of the girl child through quality infrastructure support, remedial education and courses, counseling, and through qualified, competent, and caring teachers who are capable of imparting quality education to girls. The programs also encourage quality education by constructing working toilets (lack of access to toilets is a key reason why girls are absent from the classroom), tuition centers, and the provision of cycles.

Many other government initiatives, bodies, and NGOs have established programs in recent years which help those affected by natural disasters in many other ways in India. While the effects of natural disasters can be devastating, they can be resolved with help from the government, the community, and various other organizations in India.
