How can you act?
You have a voice. We have a voice. Children around the world have a voice. Together, we can speak, and we can be heard. Start off by learning and acting on our current Help Wanted: End Child Slavery campaign.
Current Advocacy Campaigns
Help Wanted: No Child For Sale.
This campaign focuses on boys and girls who are being pushed, forced, or trafficked into 3D work – dirty, dangerous, and degrading. Children are being sold into domestic service or marriage, tricked into sexual service, forced to beg on the street, or pushed to work in dangerous mines or factories. Learn more about how you can help end this modern-day slavery.

Area Development Programs:
When you sponsor a child, your money is used to run long-term development projects called Area Development Programs (ADPs) – it’s how we do most of our work.
As a model of community development, ADPs link communities that work together in regional clusters to help address the root causes of poverty. Together with you, our sponsors and other partners, we support more than 250 ADPs in Africa, Asia, Eastern Europe, the Middle East, Latin America and the Caribbean.
ADPs are child-focused, sustainable development programs for between 15,000 to 100,000 people, divided into smaller community clusters – communities that we’re committed to being with for 10 to 15 years.
Our local facilitators are trained to build relationships, help the community to identify needs and possible solutions, provide training to local leaders and encourage networking among civil society and government groups.
When our work is long-term, locally owned and designed to move toward self-sufficiency, we make sustainable, positive changes in the communities we serve.

Transformational development is more than putting in a well here or a school there. It’s about building up communities, responding to the root causes of poverty and creating resilience. It’s about encouraging parents to send their boys and girls to school. It’s about creating rewarding work opportunities for adults so that children aren’t at risk of being sent to do dangerous jobs. It’s about finding out what a community needs and how best to respond. To do this, we work in different areas, all contributing together so children and families enjoy the fullness of life with justice, dignity, peace and hope.
How much money we spend on fundraising:
We pride ourselves on being a fiscally responsible organization in all aspects of our work, and fundraising is no exception. Overall, just 13.7 per cent of our expenditures go to fundraising, while 81.1 per cent goes directly to our work with children and families. Again, we fundraise to better help people living in poverty.
World Vision is a Christian relief, development and advocacy organization dedicated to working with children, families and communities to overcome poverty and injustice. As followers of Jesus, we are motivated by God’s love to serve all people regardless of religion, race, ethnicity or gender.
World Vision’s Core Values:
We have identified certain values that lie at the centre of World Vision’s work.
These “Core Values” are the fundamental principles that determine our commitment to each other and to the poor.
- We are Christian: From the abundance of God’s love, we find our call to ministry.
- We are committed to the poor: We are called to relieve their suffering and to promote the transformation of their condition of life.
- We value people: We regard all people as created and loved by God. We give priority to people before money, structure, and systems.
- We are stewards: We are faithful to the purpose for which resources are given and manage them in a manner that brings maximum benefit to the poor.
- We are partners: We are members of an international World Vision Partnership that transcends legal, structural, and cultural boundaries.
- We are responsive: We are responsive to the life-threatening emergencies where our involvement is needed and appropriate.
