Your Support Makes A Lasting Difference. Consider A Gift To World Villages For Children In Your Will.

A will is a good way to plan for the needs of your family and loved ones – and by also leaving a gift to World villages for Children in your will, you can create a better future for the most deprived children around the World.

We’re dedicated to caring for the world’s most impoverished children, but without your help, the work of World Villages for Children would not be possible.

By leaving a gift to World Villages for Children in your final wishes, you can provide a safe place to live and learn and the chance of a brighter  future for a deprived child living in Guatemala, Mexico, Brazil, Honduras, the Philippines and Tanzania.

Your special legacy gift will help generations of families

So far, with the generous support of our donors, we have been able to transform the lives of over 150,000 of the world’s poorest children born into poverty but thousands more lives have been touched by the impact of this support.

Education is key to ending poverty. A gift in your Will could help us change so many lives. It will help us reach out to more deprived children, to create a safe future for them by funding more school and nursery places and paying for more teachers and staff. It would help provide more books and food to support the children.

Your gift will help our children have the chance to become self-sufficient adults, support generations of their loved ones and make a lifelong difference to the welfare of their families and communities.

How to leave a gift to World Villages for Children

You may choose to leave a fixed amount (pecuniary gift) or you can choose to leave a share of what is left in your estate once you have provided for your loved ones (a residuary gift).

Your contribution is invaluable and any gift will make an enormous difference to our boys and girls and be put to good and effective use in our education projects worldwide.

When the time is right you can find out more by downloading our brochure below, calling us on 0207 629 3050, or emailing

World Villages for Children is also a member of the National Free Wills Network, which allows us to offer our donors a limited number of ‘simple’ Wills to be written free of charge through participating solicitors in the UK. We hope that you will take this opportunity to make provisions for your loved ones, and also consider including a bequest to support our work.
