About World Vision

Transforming vulnerable children's lives since 1950

World Vision has a long history of taking action that transforms the world. Our focus is on helping the most vulnerable children, in the most difficult places, overcome poverty and experience fullness of life.

Together, with supporters like you, we’ve helped millions of children and families out of poverty and we are often first on the ground when a crisis strikes.

We help children

Inspired by our Christian faith, we help children – of all faiths and none - in some of the world's most dangerous places. We believe it takes a whole community to create happy and fulfilling childhoods. And we work together with communities, so they're empowered to do just that.

Our integrated approach includes water, healthcare, education, child protection, and income generation. With the aim of allowing every child to fulfil their God-given potential.

Across almost 100 countries, our impassioned community of supporters, volunteers and community leaders work together to transform children's lives. Together, we will never give up.
