World Vision was founded on the words of a simple but powerful prayer:

“Let my heart be broken by the things that break the heart of God.”

Our faith in God is at the heart of World Vision; our inspiration, our strength, our guidance. And we’re committed to following the teaching and example of Jesus Christ in his identification with those who are poor, vulnerable or forgotten.

In practical terms, this simply means that we want to make a positive difference in the world around us as a reflection of God’s unconditional love for all.

We believe every child matters. Every child has a God-given right to reach their full potential.

We believe faith can transforms lives. Prayer, words and action can lift children out of poverty.

We believe in God’s unconditional love.

We believe in working with people of all faiths and none. We partner with all who share our heart for the world’s most vulnerable children


“I have come that you might have life – life in all its fullness.”
John 10:10
