How your generosity LASTS

One gift. Many lives changed.

Can one gift create waves of impact? It can, and it does. Each well begins with a simple donation.  Today, communities like Ireen’s aren’t celebrating a small achievement, but a big milestone: Donated wells bring life-changing water for years, even decades! An independent study shows that eight in 10 water wells installed by World Vision were still functioning at high levels after nearly two decades.* It’s truly a lasting gift, providing access to clean water today and for many years ahead.

Watch Ireen’s story

Meet Ireen, an 8-year-old girl without access to clean water. She, her family, and community risked disease, lack of education, and loss of income.

Experience Ireen’s water day

Rejoice in God’s blessings: One year later, drillers installed a water tap, changing life for Ireen and countless others in her community.

Two powerful ways to create lasting change

When you donated through the Gift Catalog, you joined forces with World Vision’s community of sponsors and caring givers to make big things possible for kids. Learn how you can have an even greater impact by becoming a part of this community.

Child Sponsorship

With a $39 monthly gift, personal encouragement, and prayers, you can empower one child, and other vulnerable kids, to reach their God-given potential. And because of our community-focused solutions, for every child you help, four more children benefit, too. That means more vulnerable kids can become change makers in their families and communities!

World Vision Fund

By giving to the World Vision Fund, you will meet critical needs both today and tomorrow, helping people rebuild in the wake of disasters and empowering entire communities to tackle the big issues that keep them in poverty. You can make a one-time gift, or choose to give monthly to help more kids and families create change in their own lives!
