Rescue Displaced Families in South Sudan
 
Nearly one million people have fled their homes in South Sudan since violence broke out in December. Women and children are arriving in ill-equipped camps with no food, clothing, shelter materials, or support. World Concern is responding to help families caught up in this crisis by providing emergency supplies, food, and more, as well as helping stabilize and support communities and individuals through our ongoing long-term programs in South Sudan. project reportread updates from the field
Save a Girl from Child Marriage with a Scholarship
 
In Bangladesh, poverty is forcing girls as young as 10 to become child-brides. This project provides a girl with a scholarship to stay in school, which is the best way to prevent child marriage and give her the chance to learn her way out of poverty. project reportread updates from the field
Seek Out and Stop Child Trafficking (S.O.S.)
 
In some of the poorest regions of Southeast Asia, girls are being trafficked, enslaved, and exploited. Using a comprehensive approach to protecting children at risk, the S.O.S. Initiative aims to Seek Out and Stop trafficking before another child is taken. project reportread updates from the field
Emergency Relief for Survivors of Haiti Hurricane
 
Yet another major disaster has hit vulnerable Haiti. Hurricane Matthew has caused flash flooding, destroyed cropland, and flattened poorly built infrastructure. Lives will be lost, disease will spread, and the aftermath will likely result in a major humanitarian crisis as displaced families struggle to meet their basic needs of food, water, shelter, and income. Your support provides a family with emergency supplies, including clean water, and helps strengthen the relief effort. project reportread updates from the field
Transform a Village in South Sudan
 
The problems associated with extreme poverty can seem overwhelming. Conflict. Hunger. Sickness. We can't change the whole world, but together, we can see one village transformed. With you, World Concern will walk alongside families in the village of Lietnhom, South Sudan, helping them build their lives and their community from the ground up. We'll focus on long-term solutions: water, education, farming, microfinance and more. project reportread updates from the field
Open a World of Hearing to Children in Bangladesh
 
More than two million people in Bangladesh suffer from hearing impairment. In a country of 162 million people, only 2,500 spots are available in specialized schools, leaving most deaf children little chance to learn to communicate. World Concern provides education for hearing impaired children through Hear Schools. With the help of hearing aids and specially trained teachers, children develop speech and learn to communicate, breaking through isolation from families and their communities. project reportread updates from the field
Protect Girls from Trafficking with Job Skills
 
This project provides job skills, trafficking awareness training, and micro-business starter kits to at-risk girls in rural Laos, near the Thailand border. Poor children are particularly vulnerable to trafficking. Many feel obligated to help support their families, so they drop out of school at a young age and look for work. They are lured by traffickers with false promises of high-paying jobs in the city. You'll help protect young girls by providing alternatives to earn income safely. project reportread updates from the field
Give a Girl a Goat, Keep Her in School
 
This project helps poor girls in Haiti earn an education. Many families in rural areas can't afford to send their children to school because of a lack of money and resources. The project empowers young girls to pay for school by providing them with a goat and training to care for their goat. With her goat and newfound knowledge, she can raise her goat and then sell the offspring to pay school fees. Together we can ensure that girls in rural Haiti can stay in school and have a brighter future. project reportread updates from the field

World Concern is providing emergency food, water and supplies to the most vulnerable, underserved families affected by this crisis. project reportread updates from the field
