World Vision Australia seeks to create lasting change in the lives of children, families and communities by transforming the world where they live.
Drawing on over 60 years of experiences in holistic, long-term community development and emergency relief initiatives, World Vision Australia currently contributes to the sustained wellbeing of almost two million children in over 60 countries each year. Our goal is to leverage our partnerships and extend the reach of our impact to 20 million children by 2021.
The World Vision “way”
World Vision seeks to transform lives by tackling the causes of poverty.
Our commitment to transformational development is evidenced by our long-term local community partnerships. Our hallmark development approach – Arena Development Programs – sees us partnering with local communities for up to 15 years to help effect lasting positive change.
Our work is characterised by enormous diversity and covers a number of sectors focused on providing maximum impact for change. Our partnerships with communities adopt a holistic approach to development that combines development, relief and advocacy efforts to address the many interconnected aspects of poverty. From improving healthcare and ensuring reliable access to food, to improving income through economic development opportunities; from providing opportunities for education and life skills development, to improving access to clean water and sanitation, World Vision seeks to transform lives by transforming the world people live in.
With a focus in community empowerment rather than service delivery, we actively encourage child and community participation in local development initiatives, our programs aim to build community capacities to driver their own development for decades to come.
To this end, our transformational development approach also builds partnerships with local organizations, community groups, faith-based groups and governments to enhance local capacities to sustain positive changes well beyond our presence in a community.
