Coronavirus (COVID-19) impact on World Vision operations

In support of public health recommendations outlined by the World Health Organization, some sponsorship program activities have been temporarily suspended due to COVID-19. Activities may include sponsor queries and correspondence, sponsor visits, gift notifications and gift deliveries. These temporary suspensions may affect the information you receive from us in the coming weeks and months. Learn more about our response to COVID-19.
A recent World Vision survey in Nicaragua showed that nearly half of the respondents would not report instances of child abuse. In response, we launched an awareness campaign called I Use My Voice Against Child Abuse and have had thousands of children and adults participate in discussion groups about how to report and prevent abuse of children in Nicaragua.

Formal and informal education have been a focus for World Vision Nicaragua, where we work closely with the Ministry of Education to improve standards.
