About World Vision

Transforming vulnerable children's lives since 1950. Here's how.

About us

World Vision has a long history of taking groundbreaking 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, we’ve helped millions of children and families out of poverty.

Here’s what you need to know about one of the biggest international children’s charities in the world - and how you can be a part of what we do.

Our approach

Inspired by our Christian faith, we help children – of all faiths and none - in some of the most vulnerable places. We believe it takes a whole community to create happy and fulfilling childhoods. 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.
