Multi Dimensional World Vision India

Indian Bloggers

The cheerful faces of excited children blushed the red roses at the World Vision India Partners Meet in Mumbai on 27th February. I know there are too many adverbs in a single sentence but can not help praising the World Vision India. Such was the exhilarating , refreshing and mood-boosting atmosphere at the partners meet that, all of us first time visitors are grateful to World Vision India for absorbing us in their Multi-Dimensional activities.

World Vision India is a Christian humanitarian organization working to create lasting change in the lives of children, families and communities living in poverty and injustice. World Vision serves all people regardless of religion, caste, race, ethnicity or gender. Spread across 174 districts in India, World Vision works through long-term sustainable community development programmes and immediate disaster relief assistance

I am passionate about children-cause so I grabbed this opportunity to blog for World Vision India and joined #Mumbai4Children.

Many sponsors met their sponsored children along with their families and shared their special moments with me. Dr. Taher Y. Kagalwala ( M.D. Pediatric , who has 2 children of his own and sponsored 4 children )  , Ms. Priyanka Sharma ( 24 year old bachelor, social media professional ), Ms. Rashmi Vedak ( with her own 3 year old son and mom) , a C.A. professional with his wife  were a few, with whom I enjoyed chatting at the World Vision India Partners meet.

Child Sponsorship monthly gift helps in providing life-transforming necessities like clean water , nutritious food , health care , education , sustainable development and above all a hopeful future.

The purpose of the World Vision India- Partners Meet was that the sponsors can come to the event, see and hear firsthand , the impact of their sponsorship support in the lives of needy children , their families and communities.

Groups of children performed Gazals and folk-dances. They set rhythm to the music. Some of the children enacted a play on peace. They were hugely applauded by the appreciative audience.
Sponsored  children shared their fruitful  journey with World vision.
Kavita a MSW degree holder is the first woman in her community to be the one.
Sanjana, a Social work student helps children get enrolled in school. #Mumbai4Children
Vikas is learning Engineering and helps other children with studies. Smriti a brilliant sponsored child said that she had gained a lot of confidence due to the financial support from World vision and added that she wanted to see developments in the society.

Nayan a child protection unit member ( CPU ) helps children through the unit of World Vision India. A lady community member shared a story about how a girls was rescued from forced prostitution through World Vision's help.
After World Vision's intervention and counselling , Santosh quit drinking and now helps others to quit the habit. Police officer Mr. Jagtap thanked World Vision India for training children about child-rights, POSCO act.

Sponsors shared how they continued sponsoring for years , despite ups and downs of life at the World Vision Partners Meet   #Mumbai4Children
Mr. Gamliel Sherio, the project manager presented a World Vision India report.
Mr. Anand Joshua (Director, IRD) and Mr. Cherian Thomas ( CEO & National Director ) interacted with sponsors.

I was humbled by such a great personality like  Mr. Cherian Thomas , National Director and CEO , World Vision India who modestly declared that they were accountable to the partners ( sponsors ). Their focus is on the most pressing issues such as reducing malnutrition , providing Primary Education. training for life and resilient communities. Providing sustainable livelihood is one of the primary goals of World Vision India.  Ms. Pamela Chopra addressed the gathering about her hearty connect with World Vision India

It was a proud moment for World Vision , when the partners talked about having 10 years of trustful relation with them. The World Vision Partners meet concluded after a vote of thanks and National anthem.
