NO CHILD WITHOUT A FUTURE
World Vision believes that by working together with children, their communities, and our supporters and partners – in almost 100 countries – the lives of the world’s most vulnerable children can be transformed.
Our experience since 1950 has shown that by bringing together people – of all faiths and none – we can improve children’s health, education, water, protection and sources of family income to build brighter futures.
We do this through our unique community-involvement model, understanding the particular needs in each context, as well as children's physical, emotional and intellectual needs, so they can reach their full potential. Our integrated approach means that, children’s situations can be transformed – whether in an emergency, through long-term development or by local, national or international advocacy.
As a Christian organisation we aspire to reflect God’s unconditional love in everything we do.
Our vision for every child: life in all its fullness
Our prayer for every heart: the will to make it so
World Vision is an international partnership of Christians whose mission is to follow our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ in working with the poor and oppressed to promote human transformation, seek justice and bear witness to the good news of the Kingdom of God.
World Vision's Christian identity underpins everything that we do, and we are committed to following the teaching and example of Jesus Christ in his identification with those who are poor, vulnerable or forgotten.
Our story began in 1947 when Dr Bob Pierce, an American evangelist and war correspondent, took a life-changing trip to China and Korea. Amid the incredible poverty, one girl’s need tore at his heart.
Our strategy is a promise to vulnerable children – to relentlessly pursue our vision, for every child, life in all its fullness; our prayer for every heart, the will to make it so.
World Vision has six core values that guide and determine our actions, and each value is a challenge that we seek to live and work to every day.
