When Mother Earth Sends Us A Message
International Mother Earth Day celebration is a reminder to each one of us that earth and its ecosystems provide us with life and sustenance. This day is an opportunity to raise public awareness around the world to the importance and challenges of the well-being of our planet and all the life it supports. Education is the foundation of this awareness. We need to empower everyone, especially children, with the knowledge to inspire action in defense of the protection of environment and be the future leaders on the matter.
Overcoming Isolation: The Story of Serine
Five-year-old Serine is a different girl because of a project funded by an EU Humanitarian Aid grant. “My name is Serine,” she says in an excited voice. “I’m 5 years old and I’m a good student. I want to become a teacher when I grow up.”
“I Was Given The Opportunity To Be The Mother And The Woman I Wanted.”
"I am grateful to the World Vision for helping me, like other women in this country, to take important leadership roles at the community level, and for the opportunity it gave me to be the mother and woman I want.”

Women Education is Women Empowerment
In celebration of this year's International Women's Day, World Vision JWG would like to share the story of Amneh, one of our volunteers in the Sponsorship Program and the Go Baby Go Program.
Circumstances forced Amneh to drop out of school after the sixth grade, and she got married at the age 16, but her passion for education did not prevent her from completing her studies later in life. Let's get to know Amneh more and her story through the video.
Someone from Abroad Cares About Me
Every year during Christmas period, World Vision sponsored children receive celebration cards from their sponsors. They also receive cards from their sponsors for other occasions during the year, such as their birthdays. Although these cards are just a piece of paper, for the sponsored children these cards have a huge meaning.

Jerusalem – West Bank – Gaza
World Vision started to work in the West Bank and Gaza in 1975.

The Well-being of Children is our Priority
Early Childhood Development
World Vision’s ECD programme focuses on the child’s well-being through the period from prenatal to age six, to enhance their well-being and early learning skills in secure and stimulating environments. ECD programmes are powerful equalisers for children who live in resource-poor settings, and they play an important role in breaking the intergenerational cycle of poverty. In partnership with the Ministry of Education (MoE) and Ministry of Health (MoH), World Vision implements a holistic ECD approach by integrating physical, mental, social and emotional support across each phase of a child’s development, especially for the most vulnerable.
Child Protection & Advocacy
In partnership with the MoE and the MoSD, we implement a holistic child protection and advocacy programme across all targeted areas in the West Bank. The programme uses a ‘systems approach’ to strengthen the protective environment around children as well as strengthen the capacities of children themselves. Interventions focus on improving governmental policies and accountability, improving social services, catalysing behaviour and attitude change, and strengthening child resilience.
Education in Emergencies and WASH
We partner with the MoE and village councils to ensure children living in vulnerable areas, particularly Area C, continue to access their right to quality education even in times of conflict and crisis. Activities within the programme are designed to provide children with physical, psychosocial and cognitive protection that can be life sustaining and lifesaving.
World Vision JWG aims to build the resilience of youth and transition adolescents (aged 12-18), especially the most vulnerable, into adulthood as active citizens empowered with competencies, values, confidence and social connectedness through an evidence-based practice, IMPACT+. The model is a club-based and is focused on leadership, active citizenship, employability, and social entrepreneurship.
Child Sponsorship inspires communities, locally and globally, to consider the well-being of children, through life-enriching experiences with children and supporters, and their families and communities.
