China has benefitted from a rapidly growing economy but child poverty in China remains a persistent issue, especially in rural areas. World Vision invests in child development through education and health support and supporting small scale infrastructure projects in water and sanitation systems.

Child rights and protection is another priority. Parents are learning about raising their children in safe and nurturing environments, and children and youth are participating in local decisions that affect their lives.
