This happened early this month where Bossa sensation Sitti Navarro joined and visited Tiltilon Elementary school, liloan. In their dream to let every child live life in all its fullness, World Vision has launched a weeklong campaign to promote child sponsorship and its advocacies here in Cebu which is - the City Advocacy Caravan

Sitti Navarro has been with the ministry since 2007, having sponsored already 3 children. As she recalls, she did not wait to be approached, but rather she voluntarily searched for their booth and volunteered with World Vision.

In Liloan, the elementary school has been a World Vision beneficiary since 2008 wherein 103 of the 708 students are registered child sponsored children. For this year, World Vision has targeted 8,000 new sponsors nationwide to sponsor 8K children as well. As of the latest gathered data, Visayas region has the biggest over all child sponsorships with over 41,000 while 25,000 in Mindanao and about 24,000 in Luzon.

About child sponsorship:
It links a particular child from a community we help to a generous individual or organization for a monthly giving of only six hundred pesos (PHP600.00). Sponsors can monitor the progress of the children and their communities thru correspondences from the child, and regular reports from World Vision. As the school year opens this June 2012, we are aiming to help 8,000 more kids to benefit from the program.

Child sponsorship works in the context of an Area Development Program. An Area Development Program (or ADP) is a partnership with the communities in the poorest provinces that employs an integrated sustainable programming model where the people themselves take the initiative and ownership of their community’s child focused development translated into well planned programs and projects.
