Global presence

Our presence in nearly 100 countries enables us to quickly provide immediate support in all types of disasters and humanitarian crises – and we are committed to long-term support, staying to help children, families, and communities recover and rebuild.​

Proven approach

Over the last 10 years, 89% of the severely malnourished children we treated made a full recovery: That’s well above industry standard!

Trusted partner

Globally, World Vision is the largest implementing partner of the World Food Programme.

​You, Lord, hear the desire of the afflicted; you encourage them, and you listen to their cry. —Psalm 10:17

More than 700 million people worldwide are living in extreme poverty — most of them women and children. 

With an income of less than $2.15 per day, they are 
deprived of basic human needs like access to  clean water, nutritious food, healthcare, education, and spiritual nurture.

We believe that, together, we can change this.

Hi, we’re World Vision!

We have over 70 years of experience working with communities, donors, partners, and governments to create opportunities for better futures for vulnerable children … even in the toughest places.

Keeping costs down

In 2023, 89% of World Vision’s total operating expenses were used for programs that benefit children, families, and communities in need.

Uprooting poverty

Our integrated approach includes water, healthcare, education, child protection, and income generation, so every child can grow into who God created them to be.

Abiding in Jesus

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.
