Mission

Relationships are the starting point and the end goal of World Vision's work. World Vision's work will recognize and further build on the social capital of the communities including networks, trust relationships, shared values, access to resources, institutions, and many others. WVIDN does not impose solutions, resources, interventions and values on the communities, but shares them as appropriate to encourage and support local development processes and initiatives. It requires active participation and ownership of community members, in all aspects of their development, and reciprocal relationships, mutual accountability, shared decision-making, values and the development of capacity, critical awareness and community-based organizations.  In Indonesia, World Vision is a member of several NGO networks and Government forums, which address social and economic issues at various levels.
