World Vision is a Christian relief and development organisation working to create lasting change in the lives of children, families and communities living in poverty. World Vision serves all people regardless of religion, race, ethnicity or gender.
Founded in 1950, WV currently works in around 100 countries around the world, assisting communities with programs and projects in health, education, agriculture, micro-enterprise development, economic assistance, disability, capacity building, and emergency relief and disaster mitigation. Importantly, activities are tailored specifically to the communities needs, encouraging community participation and ownership, so they become agents of their own development.
As a child-focused organization, WV’s work focuses on children, ensuring they are protected and their basic needs are met.
