Impact Summary from the Nonprofit

World Vision believes that tackling the causes of poverty through a holistic approach creates the greatest long-term impact. In the past year, the worldwide World Vision partnership has conducted the following activities to help relieve poverty and improve the lives of the world’s poorest: Disaster response – Within 24 to 72 hours of a disaster, World Vision usually can begin delivering aid to children and families in need. We have 45,000 staff in close to 100 countries. Many of those staff are prepared to respond to crises and committed to helping communities rebuild. In 2012, World Vision responded to 87 major disasters and humanitarian emergencies around the world and assisted more than 10 million survivors. Child sponsorship – Our child sponsorship programs helped change the lives of more than 4.2 million children worldwide. More than 1.1 million of those children were sponsored by 750,000 sponsors in the United States. Microloans – We invest in the potential of hardworking entrepreneurs in developing countries by providing funding for small businesses. These loans are made to people who do not have access to traditional banking resources. In 2012, World Vision disbursed $607 million in microloans to over 800,000 people in 35 countries. These loans impacted nearly 1.5 million jobs and 2.4 million children. Food assistance – World Vision helped children and families in need by providing over 61,000 metric tons of food supplies and $50 million in food grants. That is the equivalent to 2,000 semi-truck loads of food. Clean Water – World Vision enabled almost 955,000 people in 10 African countries to gain access to clean water by drilling approximately 1,200 new wells and through other sanitation and hygiene efforts. HIV and AIDS education and prevention – World Vision helped deliver HIV and AIDS prevention education to nearly 525,000 people in AIDS-affected areas of Africa. In addition, we equipped nearly 25,000 people in almost 6,500 churches across Africa to provide additional HIV prevention and AIDS care to their communities.

Evidence of Impact

Experts mention that World Vision International have a high presence and impact in Africa. They have large-scale projects that reach the poorest of the poor and impacts many communities.

Large-Scale Impact
They have a large capacity to impact many communities and provide expert training and build local capacity. Nonprofit Senior Staff
They have ongoing impact. Nonprofit Senior Staff
World Vision is a huge organization with a far reaching program. They do good work, but there are definitely more efficient organizations. Other
They have large-scale projects reaching the poorest of the poor, and are good at working at the community level. Foundation Professional
I'm providing a set of general observations for these large organizations, which I have interacted with over the years on multiple continents. The shared strengths of these organizations is access to resources, strong technical expertise, and broad comprehensive programs that have the potential to create synergy when integrated together in regional initiatives. Nonprofit Senior Staff
Presence & Impact in Africa
Based on my time in the field collecting data as a PhD student, I noticed that World Vision projects were *everywhere* in sub-Saharan Africa. Following that experience, I have since had a few conversation with World Vision people and was always impressed with the scope and vision of their work. Researcher and Faculty
They have a high presence and impact through Africa. Nonprofit Senior Staff
Large Outreach
World Vision has such an amazingly large outreach system. Their projects all over the world reflect a diversity and ability to adapt and change to new environments. The necessity for unique and innovative solutions to barriers to implementing projects in such diverse settings is reflective of their strength as an organization. In addition, their ability to raise and allocate large amounts of money are an indication of good leadership and responsible practices. Nonprofit Senior Staff
Strong Advocacy
Their potential is enormous, and their advocacy capacity is immense. Nonprofit Senior Staff

Organizational Strengths

Nearly all experts mention that two of World Vision strengths are they are well resourced and have strong staff.

Well Resourced and Strong Staff
Due to the size, they are able to sustain operations in needy communities. Also they attract quality experts to work with them. Nonprofit Senior Staff
Their staff and resources are their strengths. Nonprofit Senior Staff
They have a global presence and a huge budget. Nonprofit Senior Staff
Public interaction - World Vision employees are often present at conferences and workshops, and seem to do a good job networking. I was particularly impressed with Dr. Emmanuel Opong of World Vision Zambia, who has an important perspective on delivering WASH projects to the poor without stripping them of their own resources for survival. Researcher and Faculty
They have a great leadership, well resourced and have a long term vision. Nonprofit Senior Staff
Most of their staff are national of their countries. They also have leadership support to WASH. Foundation Professional

Areas for Improvement

World Vision can improve by sharing their lessons learned, in particular providing mentorship to local smaller nonprofits. They also need more technical advisors to improve their field work and monitor their projects in the long-run.

Focus on Local Development Work
They should not try to do everything but focus on key issues of local development. Nonprofit Senior Staff
Reevaluate Program Strategy
World Vision has a great deal of funding and potential but they have some practices that are questioned by my colleagues. I believe in a business based approach to sanitation but that is completely undermined by expensive toilets provided for free by World Vision (I believe there's a project in Bolivia). Other
They are big and need to find a way to really do WASH works because a lot of what they do includes too much entitlements and the communities can get spoiled and aren't learning to do WASH implementations themselves. NO MORE SITTING ALLOWANCES. Nonprofit Senior Staff
Improve Partnerships with Others
However, they have a tendency to treat smaller NGOs with arrogance. Nonprofit Senior Staff
They are a large, well-funded NGO. I give them the lowest rating for several reasons. They are very poor collaborators. The organization tends to avoid working with other NGOs and partners, including from Ministries. I have been in places where they actively proselytize, withholding services (e.g.. food, etc) until after people participate in prayer meetings. It is very difficult to see the results of their work on the ground. They often do work not based on evidence for the approach, but on how they want to do things. I would not work with them again. Researcher and Faculty
Its water and sanitation interventions in many places remain opportunistic and are vehicles to creating and strengthening local organizations, which are aspired to be World Vision partners. This leads to a real democratic deficit around their interventions. They are also quite aggressive with local civil society organizations in a number of countries. Other
Monitor Projects Long Term
To the best of my knowledge World Vision does not monitor their water supply projects over the long term, I think this would be an important addition to their work. Also, it would be great if we heard more about them through popular media, i.e.., Facebook, Twitter, etc. Researcher and Faculty
Provide Mentorship & Share Lessons Learned
They can help mentor small indigenous NGOs. Nonprofit Senior Staff
They can share more of their lessons and best practices. Foundation Professional
Need for Decentralization
The weaknesses, and why I struggle to provide a blanket rating, is that they are so large, each country-level office almost need to be rated as its own organization. In some countries I've been deeply impressed with their philosophy, strategies, and results, while in others extremely disappointed. Decentralization is critical for large agencies like this, especially in order to allow programs to be contextual and relevant in each region, however, the disparity in program quality suggests that a universal set of guiding principles and best practices could be applied more effectively across these organizations along with systems for accountability to ensure they are being followed. Nonprofit Senior Staff
Improve Field Work
Their field work is extremely variable and weak at times. Nonprofit Senior Staff
