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