Message from the


Greetings! World Vision Philippines has reached 60 years of committed work for Filipino children. We are grateful to the Lord for faithfully journeying with World Vision through the years. We are grateful as well to all who have journeyed with us along the way. All the challenges our organization has overcome, all the lessons it has learned, and all the milestones it has achieved are blessings from our Creator and Provider. All glory be to God! The anniversary, timely themed “Caring for Children, Building Sustainable Communities” was graced with the presence of Marilee Pierce-Dunker, the daughter of the late World Vision founder Rev. Bob Pierce. We were awed when, in commemorating the special event with us, she passionately shared stories about her father; how he pioneered the ministry amidst a crisis geared with nothing but the love of the Lord, a few dollars in his pocket, and an audacious faith. I recall the “piercing” question thrown to him by a missionary friend when he encountered and embraced a suffering child in Korea: “What are you going to do about it?” It was the question that prompted him to take action and make the bold decision to support as many children as they could. It paved the way for the birthing of the global organization World Vision now serving over 200 million children worldwide, including the Philippines.


ATTY. LIWAYWAY VINZONS-CHATO Chairperson, Board of Trustees World Vision Development Foundation, Inc.

The same question lingers to this day, where the harsh realities of violence against children persist; young girls and boys being abused and exploited online, little hands and feet being subjected to hazardous labor, and thousands being neglected and denied of their rights as children. What are we going to do about it? In the book of James, it says: “If a brother or sister is poorly clothed and lacking in daily food, and one of you says to them, ‘Go in peace, be warmed and filled,’ without giving them the things needed for the body, what good is that? So also faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead.” As you browse through our 2017 report, may you continue to contemplate on how our faith can be lived better; how it can be expressed through actions and love for the least in society, the poor and the vulnerable. In the next pages, you will witness the many ways our World Vision staff, sponsors, donors, and so many like-minded partners have done so much for the children. Indeed, together we can be #OneforChildren.

Message from the

Executive Director 2017 marked the 60th year of our work here in the Philippines. With the anniversary theme “Caring for Children, Building Sustainable Communities”, we had all the reasons to celebrate God’s goodness and faithfulness to World Vision and its journey through the years. From our humble beginnings of assisting 300 Filipino orphans in 1957, we are now reaching more than 2 million children through our emergency relief, community-based development programs and advocacies focused on children. This year, it was a blessing to have hosted no less than Marilee Pierce-Dunker, World Vision’s global ambassador and the daughter of our great founder Rev. Bob Pierce, who graciously joined us in revisiting the pioneer site of World Vision’s work in the Good Shepherd’s Fold Orphanage in Guimaras. Tears of joy and hymns of praise overflowed when we met some of the first sponsored children and their families! Our amazing story continues as we share our latest milestones in this report. We have seen the strengthening of partnerships with key groups including the government, international and local NGOs, donor/ aid agencies, private sector, academe and faith-based organizations joining us in tackling hard but relevant issues such as Online Sexual Exploitation of Children (OSEC), Children in Emergencies, Communication to Disaster-affected Communities, promoting Breastfeeding and the upholding of the Milk Code,

ROMMEL FUERTE Executive Director World Vision Development Foundation, Inc.

Spiritual Nurture for Children, increasing access to Information and Communications Technology (ICT) to help step up the ladder for our children. We also responded to at least 8 challenging disaster emergencies including local fires, floods, typhoons, and the massive internal displacement of people due to the armed conflict in Marawi. Overall, we have reached 46,309 individuals through our emergency response including the Hope for Tacloban Children Project in the Haiyan-stricken Leyte. Indeed, the Lord has been with us all along, walking with us while we serve the vulnerable and help the least of our fellow people change their lives for the better and experience life to the full. Grateful to 2017, and more hopeful for the years to come. Moving forward, we are excited for our brand new campaign #OneforChildren, which aims to reach at least 3 million children by year 2020. To God be all the glory!



American missionary Dr. Robert “Bob” William Pierce travelled to China and Korea to document the massive suffering caused by the war and minister to the people affected. An encounter with a child named White Jade became a turning point. White Jade was a battered child under the care of a local missionary. Moved by compassion to White Jade’s situation, Pierce offered his last five dollars and pledged to send the same amount every month to provide for the child’s needs. Pierce knew in his heart that there were many other children like White Jade who needed help. This gave birth to Pierce’s idea of child sponsorship as a way of helping thousands of children in the long term. Inspired by his prayer, “Let my heart be broken by the things that break the heart of God”, Dr. Pierce eventually led the founding of the child-focused agency World Vision in 1950, with Child Sponsorship as its flagship program to respond to the thousands of orphans left by the Korean War. Its operations started by assisting Good Shepherd’s Fold, an orphanage in the province of Guimaras, supporting 300 children. Through the years,World Vision expanded its work for children all over Asia, Latin America, Africa, the Middle East and Eastern Europe.


World Vision reached the Philippines. Its operations started by assisting an orphanage in the province of Guimaras, the Good Shepherd’s Fold, supporting 300 children. Members also gave musical instruments and textbooks for children.


Alongside this, Olga Roberston or “Mommy Olga,” with the help of Bob Pierce started a prison ministry in the New Bilibid Prison in Manila. Olga was a young missionary supported by World Vision who regularly visited local prisons to share God’s hope to the prisoners.Three years later, World Vision established the Mercyville Orphanage in South Cotabato.


World Vision saw its efforts in providing food relief and health assistance to children caught in the conflict in Mindanao. The support included resettlement and development projects.


A new field office in Cebu assisted over 100 families in the Visayas and Mindanao. World Vision launched the Development Assisting Center (DAC), a community-based approach that aims to empower poor families by helping them to manage their own development. The interventions and strategies focused on children’s needs in health, nutrition, and education, as well as livelihood for the parents.


World Vision in the Philippines underwent restructuring and halted its operations. But the work on the ground continued with volunteer staff assisting in community projects and programs. Projects were supervised by World Vision International – Asia

Region Office (ARO) in Manila under the leadership of ARO Regional Coordinator, Ruth Clay. World Vision re-opened in 1989 with former Development Training Coordinator Elnora Avarientos as its first Filipino Executive Director.


The Provincial Development Approach was piloted in the province of Cebu focusing on networking, capacity building, and partnerships with stakeholders, and envisioned to create impact at the provincial level.


World Vision Development Foundation, Inc, (WVDF) was again registered as a local NGO. The organization has been at the forefront in responding to the needs of the poorest and most vulnerable children. Its interventions include promoting the well-being of children, advocating for disaster risk reduction, children’s rights, peace-building and good governance.


WVDF holds a legacy, and over the years, it continues to grow and build upon the organization’s progress and strategies. It has served the communities through relief operations including Ketsana, Megi, and Haiyan, responding within 24 to 72 hours after the disaster or as soon as it is safe to do field assessments. In the past ten years, the organization has implemented several development projects responding to the needs of the communities including the Kusog Baga (Healthy Lungs) program and the Social Mobilisation on Tuberculosis (SMT) Project, which in partnership with the Department of Health, increased awareness on TB while helping TB patients in recovery.

WorldVision’s strong relationship with partners has helped implement education-related programs and interventions. The Tulong Aral Petron program, in partnership with Petron Foundation, aimed to provide basic school needs of children in both rural and urban areas of the country. With over 12 years of experience in managing grants and special projects, World Vision has delivered one of the biggest projects funded by the United States Department of Labor (USDOL) in partnership with likeminded organizations: the Pag-aaral ng Kabataan para sa Kinabukasan Project or the ABK3 LEAP Project which assisted more than 54,000 children engaged in and/or at high risk of child labor.


Now, on its 60th year of ministry in the Philippines, World Vision remains committed to serve the most vulnerable children and communities. World Vision also engages with various corporations, schools, churches, the media, government and civil society to contribute to children’s well-being and progressive fulfillment of their rights, recognizing children as agents of transformation and nation-building.

EDUCATION For years, children in the remote village of Moyo, Zamboanga del Norte have taken the risk of crossing the slippery bamboo bridge just to get to school. “I always worry that when I go to high school, my mother won’t allow me to attend classes because the bridge gets scary when it’s raining,” shares Edmar, one of the assisted children in Siayan town where about 90% are residents from the Subanen tribe. In partnership with World Vision, the community built a steel bridge with safe railings to benefit about 1,700 residents and non-residents in the area. Children like Edmar can now easily walk their way to school and will less likely miss their lessons in class. While building safe bridges to school, constructing and repairing classrooms, and providing school supplies to children are helpful to promote better access to education, World Vision prioritizes the higher road to functional literacy which actively involves teachers, parents, and the children themselves to improve reading and comprehension, math, and practical life skills. In the Philippines, the high rate of dropouts contribute to low functional literacy among students, which could also lead to low resilience, less opportunities in the future, and increased vulnerability to exploitation, according to a study by World Vision. In 2017, World Vision reached over 50,770 children through educational, functional literacy programs and skills trainings nationwide.

BL3ND-SAFE which stands for “Building Literacy and Lifelong Learning in a Protective (Nurturing) and Safe Environment” is World Vision’s approach to improve functional literacy through age-appropriate, culturesensitive and contextualized learning programs.

CHILD PROTECTION The National Baseline Study on Violence against Children (NBS-VAC) reports that 80 percent of children in the Philippines (aged 13 to 24 years) experienced various forms of violence from physical, psychological, sexual, bullying, cyberviolence happening at home, school, workplace, and the community among places. The Philippines is among the 10 countries worldwide with the highest prevalence of sexual exploitation among children aged 10 to 14. One out of 10 children experience sexual violence in their home.

It Takes a World to End Sexual Exploitation of Children campaign aimed to reach and protect 3 million children by 2020 through awareness raising, empowerment of children and caregivers and establishing protective systems for increased accountability and good governance to protect and prevent sexual exploitation of children through a multi-sectoral approach. Child Protection and Advocacy addressed 32 child protection cases through monitoring and referrals, established 62 child protection mechanisms, promoted at least 23 policies to strengthen child protection implementation at the local and national level. Channels of Hope (COH) for Child Protection trained faith-based organizations, churches and local government units to integrate child protection in their respective roles and sphere of influence, creating more awareness on protecting the welfare of children.


Recognizing that the Philippines has very rich cultural and religious systems, World Vision Philippines works with faith-based organizations and churches to address specific child protection issues in their communities.

World Vision aims to protect children from abuse, exploitation and all other forms of violence through community empowerment and strengthening of child protection systems to create safe and protective environment that cares for and supports all children, especially the most vulnerable.

Four year old Zian was always sickly and prone to colds and skin rashes. He lacked the appetite most children would normally have. Zian was one of the 51 malnourished children who was enrolled to the Pinoy Nutrition Hub (PNH) program implemented in one of the villages in Alcantara, Cebu, which ranked third in malnutrition prevalence. Months after enrolment, Zian’s condition significantly improved in time for his schooling. 17 out of the 32 enrollees have regained their normal weights through proper nutrition interventions and feeding practices. “I’m thankful that my son has recovered his weight. It is very timely since he is now a pre-schooler,” shares Zian’s mom Anabella. The PNH model aligns with the Scaling Up Nutrition (SUN) Movement and is now under consideration by the NNC for inclusion under nutrition interventions of the Philippine Plan of Action for Nutrition (PPAN) 2017-2022. In 2017, Pinoy Nutrition Hubs helped recover about 400 children from malnutrition nationwide.

HEALTH & NUTRITION World Vision ensures that children under its care enjoy good health by reducing their vulnerability to undernutrition and preventable diseases such as TB and HIV and AIDS.To achieve this, children should be properly fed, TB-infected people are diagnosed and are provided access to quality treatment, youth have access to adequate information on HIV and AIDS, and communities are actively involved in pushing for health policies concerning nutrition and disease prevention among others in partnership with the Department of Health, National Nutrition Council, Department of Social Welfare and Development, the Food and Drug Administration, the local government units and the private sector. Providing access to clean water in remote communities and protecting the practice of breastfeeding among mothers in key cities through the monitoring and reporting of milk code violations are also prioritized.

Pinoy Nutrition Hubs - Enrolled 520 underweight children; rehabilitated 359 children to normal weight through appropriate nutrition interventions Infant and Young Child Feeding - Educated 10,076 mothers and caregivers with proper feeding knowhows and practices for infants and young children up to 59 months of age; equipped 110 community-based support groups to educate caregivers on proper feeding Channels of Hope - Provided HIV & AIDS awareness to 17,166 children and youth 12-17 years old through integration in school, LGU and faith-based organization activities Social Mobilization on TB - Organized 69 community-based TB Task Forces to raise awareness, refer suspected TB cases; helped examine 1,410 presumptive TB patients through referrals to health providers and accredited facilities for proper diagnosis.


ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT World Vision aims to support families so they can increase their economic capacity to meet basic needs and build a sustainable livelihood source in the long run. Our approach BESt ApproTech or “Building Entrepreneurial Skills through Appropriate Technology” - provides better opportunities for poor households to grow their income and have access to financial services and skills through: Local Value Chain Development, a market-based approach in linking farmers and producers to viable markets, focusing on value-adding activities and effectively managing the segments of the business chain through collaboration with the market players, supporting enterprises and industries. Community Managed Savings and Credit Association (CoMSCA), a simple and teachable savings group and loan system which promotes the value of accountability and resilience. It is easily organized and sustained in the community, so that members are able to pool their savings, and earn added income to meet their basic or emergency needs.

Business Facilitation, support provided to parents’ businesses or employment to help increase their capacity to afford goods and services needed to ensure their children’s wellbeing. In 2017, about 1,344 household members were trained with enterprise development skills; while 295 people were taught practical ways to approach employers. Aiding Vulnerable Families through Value Chain is an initiative funded by Citi-Foundation aimed to help improve the capacity of families through trainings and technical assistance to at least 300 individuals engaged in agriculture, food carinderia, handicrafts production, trading and selling, sari-sari stores, vending, and other services like massage therapy and laundry. A participating farmers’ group leader from Batangas Honorata Casabuena shared, “We used to just plant and plant without thinking to whom we are going to sell our produce. The project makes us understand that proper business planning is essential so as not to waste our products.”

DISASTER RISK REDUCTION & MANAGEMENT Super Typhoon HAIMA (local name Lawin) made landfall in Penablanca, Cagayan on October 19, 2017, pounding northern Philippines. The typhoon affected more than 104,000 people of 24,700 families across 132 municipalities and has left a massive damage in the affected communities.

Identified areas in the towns of Loreto and La Paz have been submerged to flood water ranging from 2 feet to10 feet high.

Other DRR Initiatives With the changing storyline of focusing efforts on increasing preparedness and disaster risk reduction (DRR) in the communities, initiatives such as integration of Child-Focused DRR, promoting of Safe Schools model, Communication to Disasteraffected Communities (CDAC) Network Disasters and Emergencies Preparedness Programme (DEPP) were also implemented.


SPIRITUAL NURTURE FOR CHILDREN Spiritual Nurture for Children is World Vision’s five-year project aimed to provide children and youth the opportunities to participate in interactive learning events like camps and workshops that promote spiritual nurture and positive values. The project also recognizes the importance of family and the critical role of parents and caregivers to be responsible in guiding the children’s growth and building their confidence. Thus, a workshop dubbed Celebrating Families was adapted especially for parents and caregivers to appreciate God’s loving plan for their families. In 2017, almost 16,000 young people were touched by the program’s life-changing workshops. At least 800 child and youth leaders were also trained as facilitators for learning programs such Dare to Discover (D2D) and Empowering Children as Peacebuilders (ECaP), to help children and youth know God and themselves more, as they see their place in God’s plan.

“As long as God is with you, all the challenges that God gives are His means to make you a stronger, braver, and better person.” Hanna, 14, a Dare to Discover participant

World Vision also conducted seminars with various faithbased groups and radio guestings to create conversations to promote spriritual nurture among children.

A VOICE FOR THE YOUTH AND CHILDREN Filipino pop music celebrity Inigo Pascual, 20, offers his time and influence to be the Ambassador for the Spiritual Nurture for Children project to encourage the youth in various World Vision gatherings and community visits. Pascual plays an enormous role to inspire teens and children on the importance of living a godly and meaningful life. “It is an honor to be an ambassador for World Vision and its spiritual nurture programs for children,” Inigo shared. “I want to make the most of this opportunity by raising awareness so that more people will join and support the cause.” As a World Vision advocate, Inigo also aims to use his voice to help children know their basic rights and to promote good values among the youth. “Every child has the potential to make his or her dreams a reality, but this potential can only be tapped if they are given the right opportunities,” Pascual added.

ENGAGING THE PUBLIC World Vision’s 60th Anniversary Commemorating 60 long years of ministry in the Philippines became World Vision’s platform in 2017 to engage the public and share the organization’s continuing work for the well-being and protection of children. It was a time not just to celebrate the milestones, but also to launch an important campaign “It Takes A World to End Online Sexual Exploitation of Children (OSEC)”, as part of World Vision’s massive advocacy movement to end violence against children around the world. Highlighted by the symbolic ‘unplugging’ of a giant power plug during the launch, the fight against OSEC sought to strengthen World Vision’s ties and partnerships with like-minded groups and key agencies working together to rescue child victims, restore survivors and prosecute the offenders.
