As the classic song goes, “… the children are the future.”
World Vision, an international Christian NGO, has been instrumental in changing children’s lives, and their communities, in the Philippines for more than 60 years. Through holistic programs, innovative and child-focused campaigns, and strategic partnerships, thousands of children continue to receive the opportunity to live their lives to the full, most especially as the world goes through a health crisis.
Last year, the Chosen™ campaign was launched in various World Vision offices changing lives around the world. Though the pandemic has affected the launch last January 2020, World Vision in the Philippines was still able to have 263 children sponsored.
Through World Vision’s Chosen™ campaign, children are empowered to contribute in changing their future by giving them the power to choose their sponsors. This new and effective way in child sponsorship is also transforming the lives of the sponsors and supporters.
Nikki Gil supports Chosen™ Relaunch
Though the pandemic has tremendously impacted individuals, corporations, institutions and even the government, World Vision stays committed to ensuring that the most vulnerable Filipino children are healthy, educated, safe, and protected.
This year, as World Vision relaunches Chosen™ with Celebrity Nikki Gil, the organization is hopeful that through this partnership, more individuals with hearts for children will know about the campaign and be willing to sign up to be chosen.
“The fact that I got to where I am today is a series of moments of being chosen first and foremost by God. I think that’s such a beautiful display of how powerful God’s love is for us. There are times in our lives where you are in a situation where you have limited choices in life. For you to be given this to choose who will journey with you to a brighter future, that’s such a big deal,” shared Nikki Gil.
Protecting the most vulnerable children from the coronavirus is World Vision’s priority today. With the support of local partners, preventive health measures have always been a vital part of its child sponsorship programs.
“When you sign up to be #Chosen, you are empowering kids to take the first step in changing their future. Together with thousands of individual and organizational partners, World Vision welcomes you to this ministry that looks after the welfare of the most vulnerable children. Thank you for being a channel of God’s blessing today”, said World Vision National Director Rommel Fuerte.
