World Vision is a Christian relief, development and advocacy organization dedicated to working with children, families and communities to overcome poverty and injustice. As an international partnership of Christians, World Vision’s mission is to work with the poor and oppressed to promote human transformation, seek justice and bear witness to the good news of the Kingdom of God. World Vision works with the most vulnerable children in the world so they can experience God’s promise: life in all its fullness. Through the organization’s work, every 60 seconds, a family gets water, a hungry child is fed, and a family receives the tools to overcome poverty. For nearly 70 years, World Vision has ministered alongside the Church to answer Jesus’ call in Matthew 25—to care for the least of these. Together, with churches, their leaders and others, World Vision has impacted the lives of over 200 million vulnerable children by tackling the root causes of poverty.
