“I was just a Sunday school teacher, but I love children,” says Lona, a refugee who now works at an early education centre run by World Vision Uganda. Lona is a child animator, who leads call-and-answer nursery rhymes with her trademark grin, consoles children when they’re upset, breaks up disagreements between preschoolers, and supports the teacher as he delivers lessons.

“I love watching the children learning. They start to understand how to sing songs in English, they learn to count, to say the alphabet, they learn about their body parts, how to keep clean,” this mother of five remarks.

More than 13,000 children attend World Vision’s early childhood development classes each morning at various refugee settlements in northern Uganda. The classes are led by qualified teachers and supported by refugee animators – a united effort to ensure preschoolers are set up for success when they enter primary school. #BackToSchool

Five years ago, the smallest disagreement could spark a fight between sisters Ayen and Tabitha. They're not alone. Many people in Kenya’s Kakuma refugee camp have witnessed brutal scenes of conflict before fleeing their homeland. As a result, violence often breaks out when disagreements emerge.

But after joining a World Vision Kenya-supported peace club, Ayen and Tabitha learned how to solve disagreements harmoniously. They quickly became advocates for peace within their school and community. They help organize activities like debates, environmental clean-up days and football matches, which create friendship and foster a stronger sense of unity.

“I hope one day I can go to South Sudan and apply the lessons of peace I have learned,” says 18-year-old Ayen.

Zin Mar is a 23-year-old mom living in remote village in Myanmar. When we first met her, she was 9 months pregnant and very excited to welcome her second child into the world. But when her newborn baby stopped eating, Zin had to turn to her family for advice. She was told to feed her newborn baby honey.

Noel has worked for about 12 years with World Vision Philippines. Getting to and from work is no easy feat, but he gets his inspiration from the children he serves.

"It’s about eight hours from home to my workplace. And another eight hours going home. I go home every weekend to be with my family and five days of the week I’m here.

I just love doing this kind of work. There have been so many ups and downs. There’s so many times I’m tempted to just…[I’m] so tired, so I need to move to some other work.

And yet, when I see children advocating for other children, training children to be leaders, it gives me some inspiration to really continue for these children. Giving them opportunities to be heard, to participate, and to be able to protect themselves from abuses. I just love my work and being with children. So, I think 12 years—there are more years to come." #WorldHumanitarianDay #WHD2018

21-year-old Chamrouen from Cambodia was once a sponsored child, but is now a primary school teacher. "Before, I was not brave and I didn't dare to show my ability,” she reflects. “But since World Vision came to my community, I learned how to teach people about hygiene, sanitation, children rights and child protection within my community,” she says with confidence.

Every 60 seconds, a family gets water, a hungry child is fed, a family receives the tools to overcome poverty. Leonardo followed his dreams and, through child sponsorship, was able to get an education. Now, he works to give children in his own community a better life by bringing water to the surrounding region.

Sponsor the next Leonardo and see how an entire community can change along the way: www.worldvision.ca/sponsor-a-child.
