World Vision was launched in Sierra Leone in March 1996 during the civil war. WV provided food aid to over 140,000 IDPs in Bo town and supported agricultural recovery for over 15,000 farm families in the south and east. WV facilitated resettlement of over 165,000 IDPs in the south and east.
In February 2003, WV transitioned to longer-term development, implementing community-based area development programmes (ADP). By 2011, 24 ADPs had been launched.
World Vision’s work in the areas of Health, Education, WASH and Livelihoods has and is still impacting the lives of 40,027 registered children in the areas of operation.
