Our Impact

As a charity, your donations enable our work. So we want to show you the impact of our programmes in a transparent and inspiring way: detailing how children’s lives have improved as a result of our interventions, and also reflecting on how we can be even more effective in the future.

Using evaluations and reviews of our work in 2015, we're pleased to be able to share our:

  • Impact video - which profiles our impact in child health in one village in Zambia
  • Impact report - which summarises the impact of all World Vision UK-funded projects in 2015
  • Technical report - which details the impact and also some of the methodological challenges and innovations we're using to better understand how we contribute to change
  • Global Child Well-being Report - which summarises the progress of the whole World Vision partnership towards four child well-being targets.

2015 IMPACT REPORT

This is the sixth, annual Impact Report produced by World Vision UK, and as in previous years we present both the ‘breadth of impact’, particularly the number of children we have reached with our programming, and the ‘depth of impact’, looking at the nature of change in their lives.

This year we've focused on the ‘sustainability of impact’, considering how likely it is that the positive change we have seen so far can be built on by the communities that we partner with.

Breadth of impact

I love riding the boat as well as riding the small truck,”said Aye Aye referring to using different kinds of transport to go to school depending on the season. © 2015 / World Vision

In 2015, World Vision UK supported a total of 317 projects across 38 countries, funded by donations from both institutions and individuals. We directly affected the lives of 7,008,898 people, 4,037,779 of whom were children and an increasing proportion of whom live in fragile states.

Depth of impact

Photo: Melisa, age 2, is staying with his parents and sister in an abandoned brick factory on the outskirts of the Serbian city, Subotica. By the time they arrived, the Hungarians had closed the border to Serbia. In the month that the family has been traveling, they’ve exhausted their resources. The last of their money went to a smuggler who disappeared with the cash. Now they are dependent on aid for everything. So now they stay, waiting, trying to figure out what they can do next. © 2015 Laura Reinhardt / World Vision

Using standardised indicators to track improvements in child well-being we can report improvements progress in child health, education and protection, and illustrate this with case studies from Zambia, India, Malawi and Sierra Leone.

Sustainability of impact

Her niece Sushmita (red dress) and Swikriti (pink dress) say they feel safer and more comfortable here. They can also sleep better as they were very afraid and could not sleep in the open before. © 2015 / World Vision

In our long-term programming, we’ve identified five drivers of, or factors which support, sustainability. This has helped us to analyse the extent to which the gains in child well-being might be sustained in an area after we complete our programme.
