Who we are.
World Vision is a Christian humanitarian organization dedicated to working with children, families, and their communities. Our community development approach empowers children, families and their communities to break the cycle of poverty and reach their God-given potential. We work in the most difficult contexts in the poorest countries, because we believe in the power of transformation.
When we began our work in 1950, our approach was simple - we provided food and shelter for children in orphanages. But we've learned a lot in 69 years. Now we offer a full solution to poverty and injustice issues - and make it sustainable so it lasts!
