World Vision

Why World Vision…

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

Our supporters, partners and staff join forces with communities on the ground to help children achieve good health, access education for life, experience the love of God and their neighbours and are cared for, protected and participating. Together we share proven, world-class development methods to bring food, water, education and economic change.

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.

World Vision is committed to ensuring Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander staff are well represented and supported within the staff team. The Australia First Nations Program has a First Nations staff network that acts as a support network and safe space for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander staff who are separated by distance but connected by culture. The network also provides advice to the Australia First Nations Program and the broader WV organisation regarding our work with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander organisations, communities and families.
