"My family and I have been sponsors for many years. We have seen the way it not only changes a child's life, but entire communities as well."
Emmy Award-winning television personality Alex Trebek is best known for his work as the host of Jeopardy! A native of Sudbury, Ontario, Trebek first traveled to Uganda with World Vision in 2002. Since then, he has been involved with World Vision and is often seen on the organization’s television shows.

He has adopted a village in Zambia, Africa and is helping to build a school, homes for teachers, as well as a medical facility.
When you sponsor a child, you help break the cycle of poverty by providing a child and their community with life-saving necessities. Canadians have been partnering with World Vision for 60 years, because they've discovered that sponsorship works. With your help, we partner with the child, their family, neighbours and local leaders to transform a struggling community into one that is thriving. World Vision’s programs focus on Food, Education, Health, Clean water, Child Protection and other vital areas which improve the lives of children and their community.
