Two ways to sponsor a child

When you sponsor a child for $39 a month, you’ll show God’s love by helping establish sustainable access to basics like clean water, improved nutrition, quality education, healthcare, economic opportunity, spiritual nurture, and more.

Join a global movement

Each year, thousands of participants unite to walk or run in World Vision’s Global 6K for Water. Join others like Catherine and Vera, who in 2021 raised more than $2,000 through their Global 6K fundraiser!

Find your drive

Gigi not only ran the Chicago 6K for Water but added a 5K beforehand to run an 11K for her 11 birthday, "It was worth it to bring clean water to more people. There are children who do this every day for water."

Every step you take is one they won’t have to. ™

On May 21, join the world’s largest 6K for water! Family fun. Global impact.

Bring people together

Every year, communities across the globe come together to provide clean water to children in need, communities like Antioch Baptist Church, which has held a Global 6k celebration since 2017.

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 2021, 90% of World Vision’s total operating expenses were used for programs that benefit children, families, and communities in need.

Child focused and community based

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


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.


World Vision has 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.

The blessing chain

Animals provided in Guatemala through World Vision’s Gift Catalog program keep on giving after the initial gift. Through a program called Pasando la Bendición, or Passing the Blessing, more families in need receive animals that provide them with reliable nutrition and income.
