World Vision International
World Vision International is a Christian humanitarian organization dedicated to working with children, families, and their communities worldwide to reach their full potential by tackling the causes of poverty and injustice. Founded in 1950, World Vision works with children, families and communities in close to 100 countries to help them reach their full potential by addressing the causes of poverty and injustice.
With private, government and multilateral funds World Vision supports worldwide implementation of child-focused, community-based multi-sector initiatives. World Vision projects may be grouped into three areas: short-term emergency relief, such as providing food, shelter and medical care to victims of natural or man-made disasters; long-term sustainable community development focusing on helping communities meet the needs its members identify, like clean water, education, health care, agricultural improvements and sanitation; and working with policymakers and the public at the national, regional and global level to build awareness around poverty and to address the unjust systems that help perpetuate it.
