As artists, we wield tremendous influence in our culture. Plato rightly feared the arts’ ability to shape thought and sway the affection of society. When we harness the power of our public voice to speak out as advocates, we pierce the consciences of good men and women. We are proud to join forces with artists who are willing to use their influence and platform to tell the stories of those whose voices might never be heard... the poor, the marginalized, and the oppressed living in impoverished communities around the world.

Who is Teriano Lesancha?


Growing up in the Maasai culture wasn't easy for former sponsored child Teriano Lesancha. Now a top student in Canada, she's looking forward to going home

Teriano is a former sponsored child from Kenya who recently graduated from Ryerson University in 2012 with a degree in social work. Through her persistence and help from World Vision, she was able to fulfil her God given talents and be the first girl in her entire community to graduate from high school and the first person from her village ever to go to university over seas.

Her story has been an inspiration to many, including artists such as Sarah McLachlan, who she met in person at a concert in 2011

Help Teriano Lesancha Sponsor Children


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.
