The Global 6K for Water is a virtual event! It can be done by anyone, anywhere — alone or in families. When you walk or run 6K from your own home or neighborhood, you'll provide clean water to one person in need.

Hi, we’re World Vision.

We’re a Christian humanitarian organization helping children, families, and their communities overcome poverty and injustice.

High Impact

We keep costs down. In 2020, 88% of World Vision’s total operating expenses were used for programs that benefit children, families, and communities in need.

Community-based

We empower communities and guide them to set their own goals — equipping them so that progress is sustained, and continued, long after we’ve left.

Loving

We serve alongside the poor and oppressed as a demonstration of God’s unconditional love for all people. World Vision serves every child we can, of any faith or none.

Courageous

Working in some of the world’s toughest places, where others often can’t go, we continuously challenge ourselves to do our utmost for those we serve.

Honoring the legacy of Alex Trebek, “champion for those in poverty”

Over four decades, TV host of Jeopardy! Alex’s Trebek partnered with World Vision to impact the lives of millions of children.
