This type of impact can only be made through loving program staff who honor and care for the communities they serve, thoughtful multi-sector programs (including education and Biblical Empowered Worldview) and through people like you.
Two generous donor partners who have seen and know first-hand that World Vision’s programs are successful at ending child marriage and FGM believe in them so much they’ve created a $2 Million challenge. They invite you to join them and transform communities just like Moses Chepkonga mentioned in his quote above.
The Kenya Big Dream is a holistic and proven approach to help eradicate child marriage and FGM.
- Tradition equates the cut with womanhood but through our work with community leaders we invite girls and boys to participate in coming-of-age ceremonies to safely replace FGM as a rite of passage.
- Families need daughter’s bride price but through our work families are empowered through new income generating opportunities to become resilient and financially stable.
- Girls’ education isn’t prioritized but through our work children are empowered through education, giving girls and boys the chance to reach their full God-given potential.

At World Vision, stewardship is an integral part of everything we do. In rare cases where donations exceed what is needed, or where local conditions prevent program implementation, World Vision will redirect funds to similar activities to help children and families in need.
The multiplying effect from grants and donated goods may change throughout the year on identical or similar offers due to variations in the start and end dates of donor grants and our programs.
