Why World Vision…

World Vision is a global community of millions, working together for one purpose: to change the lives of vulnerable children.

Children are at the centre of our approach and are essential to sustainable development. Our supporters, partners and staff join forces with communities every day to help vulnerable children become healthy, well-nourished and well-educated, free from all forms of violence. We work globally and in Australia, implementing development programs to empower marginalised and vulnerable communities and responding to emergencies to help keep these communities safe.

Our organisational culture reflects a "Partnership" of World Vision offices in nearly 100 countries and almost 37,000 staff working towards one vision: Our vision for every child, life in all its fullness. Our prayer for every heart, the will to make it so.  World Vision has profound global impact reaching one person every 10 secs with clean water, and every 60 secs a family gets access to tools and support they need to get out of poverty.

In Australia, World Vision is an iconic brand and market leader in a sector that is renewing itself for the 21st century. Brand metrics are improving, staff engagement growing, donor satisfaction and delight is improving, and public advocacy has been significant and powerful in bringing change.  The organisation is also undergoing significant digital renewal exploring and drawing upon a range of digital tools to refresh donor direct experiences of the powerful transformation work of World Vision.
