World Vision’s Impact Report 2012 is now available to download - see below
This is the third impact report which World Vision UK has published. Its objective is to honestly report and reflect on the impact of World Vision UK programme and advocacy work in our 2012 financial year as we seek to bring real hope to the lives of millions of children in the world’s hardest and most fragile contexts. In the Report you can read about how we helped transform the lives of 3.8 million children and continued to focus our work across three areas: child health, children’s rights to care and protection, and children in humanitarian disasters.
The report was externally validated by the Oxford Policy Management supporting the highest standards of accountability and transparency.
World Vision believes that poverty is not inevitable. Through our programmes and advocacy work, we will continue to demonstrate the positive effect and limitations that our work has on communities across the globe and continue to drive for action by local authorities, governments and multinational organisations to correct the failing systems and unequal relationships that keep children in poverty.
This report is an analysis of World Vision UK's contribution towards transformingthe lives of the worldҒs poorest children in a selection of World Vision UK funded projects.
World Vision UK is more than aware that we must be good stewards of the resources which are entrusted to us by members of the public, the UK Government and other donors and foundations in order to make a real difference in the lives of children in developing countries. To do this, we are in the process of applying a ‘Value for Money’ (VfM) lens to enhance our accountability, make the case for investing in the lives of the most vulnerable, and to increase our own impact through better allocation of resources. Our understanding of Value for money is as follows: ‘maximising long-term value for the most vulnerable children with the available resources’.
