About the ministry: World Vision is a Christian relief, development, and advocacy organization working to create lasting change in the lives of children, families, and communities to overcome poverty and injustice. Inspired by our Christian values, World Vision is dedicated to working with the world’s most vulnerable people as a demonstration of God’s unconditional love. World Vision serves all people regardless of religion, race, ethnicity, or gender.
World Vision responds to humanitarian emergencies around the world, whether they are natural or man-made such as the civil conflict in Syria. With staff in nearly 100 countries, we are often already on the ground when disaster strikes. We are quick to deliver vital humanitarian assistance to children and families, providing special care and protection for unaccompanied children. We partner with other humanitarian organizations and advise governments on strategies for rebuilding.
In our development work, World Vision partners with communities to build better lives for children. Through child sponsorship, we help parents ensure that their children have improved access to health care, food, education and clean water. Our programming is innovative, sustainable, and responsive to the needs of the particular community.
World Vision wants to ensure that children's rights are recognized, no matter where they live. We advocate with Canada’s government on behalf of children everywhere, including those living in “fragile states” where governments overseas are either unable or unwilling to care for their countries’ most vulnerable children. In Canada, we press governments, corporations and individuals to consider their response to children forced into the worst kinds of child labour, urging greater transparency in global supply chains.
