Our programs

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Relief and Rehabilitation International Programmes

Emergency Relief
World Vision, the international Christian humanitarian organization, responds to natural and man-made disasters with goods and services helping people return to self-reliance. Children and the elderly are especially vulnerable in disasters, whether "sudden-onset” events, like earthquakes and floods, or "slow-onset” events, such as famines, or complex emergencies resulting from conflict or other causes. Most natural disasters cannot be predicted. However, staff monitor local conditions and indicators for potential emergencies, and position relief supplies in strategic locations to help communities prepare for disasters. World Vision has a global reputation for responding quickly and effectively to emergencies, and staying as long as needed to help people rebuild their lives and communities.

Community Development
World Vision’s community development programs seek to demonstrate God’s love by helping people, especially the most vulnerable children, overcome poverty and realize their own potential. Child sponsorship is an integral element of the organization’s development work. Building a better world for children begins in their homes and their communities. World Vision’s staff work directly community members to provide services including health care and nutrition initiatives; agricultural improvements; income generation programs; safe drinking water and sanitation projects, literacy, leadership, and vocational training. We provide assistance to recipients without regard to their race, gender, religion, ethnicity, or sexual orientation.

Population(s) Served

Just as important as the work we do with children is the work we do for them. We advise world and local leaders in government, business and other private organisations so that the decisions they make will benefit and not disadvantage children.

We believe in challenging and changing the policies, systems, structures, practices and attitudes that keep vulnerable children and their families living in poverty. And we believe that children should be involved in change. Our advocacy is informed and driven by the communities we serve. The issues and injustices as told to us by children and youth form the basis of our work.

Wherever practical we prefer to put the power in the hands of children themselves - and help them to understand their rights and responsibilities and how to act when they sense injustice. This way the children will be the architects of a fairer society for themselves and future generations.

Population(s) Served

World Vision’s approach to development is focused on improving the well-being of children, especially the most vulnerable. A commitment to sustainability is at the heart of all we do.

Building on local assets in collaboration with communities and partners, World Vision contributes to the sustained well-being of children by working at four levels: 1) Children, 2) Households and Families, 3) Community and 4) Enabling Environment.

How does this organization measure their results? It's a hard question but an important one.

Context Notes

More than 90 percent of natural disaster-related deaths occur in developing countries, where poverty and lack of resources exacerbate the suffering. WV works in many of these countries.

Number of people reached with improved water access

Context Notes

Nearly 1,000 children under age 5 die every day from diarrhea caused by contaminated water, poor sanitation, and improper hygiene. We believe the global water crisis can be solved within our lifetime

Number of people assisted with food security and resilience

This metric is no longer tracked.
Totals By Year

Context Notes

One in eight people in the world do not have enough to eat. Many poor farmers are unable to grow enough food to feed their families. We partner with communities to address their food needs.

Number of microloan borrowers

This metric is no longer tracked.

Context Notes

1.3 billion people worldwide are living on less than $1.25 a day. That's why we facilitate savings groups, improve market development, and provide access to microfinance.

Goals & Strategy

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Everything World Vision does is focused on one goal: the sustained well-being of children, especially the most vulnerable.

Building a better world for children:

Target 1: Children report an increased level of well-being (12-18 years)

Target 2: Increase in children protected from infection and disease (0-5 years)

Target 3: Increase in children who are well nourished (0-5 years)

Target 4: Increase in children who can read (by age 11 or end of primary schooling)

Child-focused
Global Commitment
Sustained Change
Integrated Goals

The WV Partnership has set in place a strategic focus and direction for work globally and established evidence-based benchmarks for measuring progress across the entire WV Partnership. A framework of broad child well-being aspirations with a set of outcomes and four targets was established. WV measures the success of its work against these targets. Annual child well-being reports from each WV country office are reviewed providing results from our programs working across many different sectors. WV produces an annual Child Well-Being Summary Report, which is available on the World Vision International website www.wvi.org

WV Partnership total income for FY17 over 2 B (cash, food resources and donated products)

More than 42,000 staff in nearly 100 countries

VisionFund, WV's microfinance subsidiary, offers financial services, providing loans and helping to create or sustain jobs and improve the lives of children and their families.

World Vision works with families, communities, partners and supporters to help ensure girls and boys:

Enjoy good health
Are educated for life
Experience the love of God and their neighbors
Are cared for and protected, and participate

WV uses integrated, multi-sectorial approaches (e.g. Development, Relief, and Advocacy)

World Vision is embarking on a bold new 15-year strategy called Our Promise 2030: Building Brighter Futures for Vulnerable Children. We believe that every child is created in God's image and deserves life in all its fullness. We are shifting how and where we work to transform reality for vulnerable children and help them to be all that God intended.
