"Children should never lose their innocence. Child labour and child slavery are unacceptable, regardless of the country or situation."
Television personalities Drew Scott, Jonathan Scott, and their producer-brother JD Scott traveled to India with World Vision in April 2013 to highlight the problem of children working in dirty, dangerous and degrading jobs. This Global Ambassador trio are committed to raising awareness about the estimated 115 million children worldwide who are forced into the worst kinds of labour due to extreme poverty.
Since returning home, the Scott Brothers have raised money for World Vision at their annual Producers Ball event during TIFF. They continue to partner with various celebrities to help raise awareness about their time in India.
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.
