|Abstract: ||These days child well-being is becoming a universal issue to many academicians,
scholars, governments and international organizations since their basic needs are not
being met. Most of the children do not have the best start and most of them suffer from
war and violence, poverty and economic crises, and diseases including HIV/AIDs. This
is also true to Ethiopia.
Based on this fact, the study tries to assess the impact of World Vision Ethiopia on the
well-being of children in the area of education and health through child centered
community development in Antsokia-Gemeza Woreda.
The study used household, sponsored children survey, focus group discussion,
interviews, and collect data to be analyzed.
The result shows that most of the
community has benefited from the program in which sponsored children, the main
source of fund, seems abandoned to have direct benefit from the program for the last
Therefore, the well-being of today's children as a whole and the coming generation can
be changed if NGOs and other agencies keep their commitment and make the
necessary investment in primary education and basic health services. These services
have the power to pave a way for a lifetime of improved health and education and
contribute to economic growth too.|
