Speaking at the opening ceremony World Vision Sierra Leone Sponsorship Manager Samuel Kamara said the training is aimed at empowering their field staff with transformation techniques of the sponsorship programmes.
He said the Single Step implementation programme is an enhanced data collection mechanism of sponsorship beneficiaries that can be accessed by local and international partners especially sponsors of children.
He said with the single step implementation of the sponsorship programme there will be a single data for all sponsorship information undertaken by World Vision Sierra Leone staff.
He said the world Vision sponsorship programme has shared benefits for the children and the communities they live in through Gift Notification by sponsors.
World Vision Sierra Leone Sponsorship Manager Samuel Kamara said currently there are over 58,000 registered children in 24 Area Development Programmes in chiefdoms across the country.
He said registered children for the sponsorship programmes, are identified by world vision field staff and their information are sent to sponsors around the world through an internet portal.
He said World Vision Sierra Leone targets the most vulnerable children in deprived communities for the sponsorship programmes and ensures that the community also benefits through community developments projects.
“We have sponsors that support construction of health centres, water well, schools and also income generating enterprises” Kamara said.
He also said that registered children for the sponsorship programmes are provided with Child greetings video and community intro video for the public to access through the World Vision data base to solicit sponsorship.
He said “our programmes are tailored to address the needs of people living in deprived communities around the country.”
He said the data base will be a platform for the sponsors to interact with the beneficiaries on developments of the programmes.
The training attracted over fifty participants from 24 Area Development Programs in World Vision operational areas across the country.
Some of the participants told our reporter that the training is timely and the relevant modules helped them to well understand the single step registration of sponsorship beneficiaries.
