Child Sponsor Ivory Coast

Child Sponsor Ivory Coast

Ivory Coast is in 162nd place out of 189 countries and territories in 2019 when ranked in terms of life expectancy, literacy, access to knowledge and the living standards of a country. In 2019 infant and under five mortality were 79.3 deaths per 1,000 live births with an overall life expectancy of 57.78 years. Whilst the internal conflict destroyed much of the country's infrastructure, today Ivory Coast's citizens enjoy a relatively high level of income compared to other countries in the region not least because it is the world's largest exporter of cocoa beans (albeit often using forced child labour), although in 2020, 10.8% of its people were food insecure with 21.6% of children under five being chronically malnourished. The infection rate of HIV/AIDS in Ivory Coast is estimated at 2.70% in adults ages 15–49 giving the country one of the highest prevalence rates in the West African region.

There are few child sponsor programs in Ivory Coast and those that do operate are focussed on the long term care of orphans and abandoned children including those who beg and steal to survive on the streets of urban areas, and access to health and educational services which, as ever, are lacking in the more rural areas. You can make a difference when you sponsor a child in the Ivory Coast (Cote d'Ivoire).

Volunteer Work Uganda

In a shameless bit of self-promotion, read this novel by the African Volunteer Network team about volunteering in Uganda. "Well worth the read especially for those working with non-profits abroad. In fact, it should be required reading."
