Description

About


World Vision is a humanitarian organization helping children, families, and their communities overcome poverty and injustice. It is the largest child-focused private charity in the world. Our almost 40,000 staff members working in nearly 100 countries have united with our incredible supporters to impact the lives of over 200 million vulnerable children by tackling the root causes of poverty.


Our Work


1. Child ProtectionChildhood should mean love, not violence. We help children by building loving communities that protect and heal children to prepare them for a brighter future. World Vision’s approach to ending violence against children protects them today and empowers them for tomorrow. We do this by equipping them, their communities, and local partners with the tools to address the root causes of violence against children.


2. Disaster Management: When disaster strikes, we are on the ground, quickly providing immediate support – and we stay helping to rebuild lives for children, families, and communities. One quarter of the world’s children live in countries affected by conflict or disasters, and more than half live in urban settings. Recovery is possible. With planning and collaboration alongside local partners, hope for renewal is alive even in the most hostile environments around the world.


3. Economic Development: We empower communities and guide them to set their own goals and equip them so that progress made is sustained, and continued, long after we’ve left. By promoting equality, inclusiveness, and sustainable economic growth, we can help end extreme poverty and allow at-risk children to reach their full potential.


4. Education: All children have the right to lead productive and fulfilling lives. We help make this happen by supporting them with an inclusive, quality education for life in a nurturing and safe learning environment. Empowering children starts with parents and teachers—providing educational tools and training is the first step to help children become lifelong learners, improve their communities, protect themselves from violence, and live a productive and fulfilling life.
