Economic development is essential to World Vision’s goal of the sustained well-being of children. When there are improvements in the conditions of economic justice, it paves the way toward economic well- being in every home.
This means that families have the option to spend money on the things that impact their children’s well- being. We recognize that for children living in poverty, life in all its fullness begins with this sustained family well-being. Economic development is an essential element for lasting change so that families and communities can create nurturing environments where children can thrive.
World Vision works to strengthen economic development as part of its programming approach. We know that without these initiatives, families could not send children to school; take them for medical treatment or protect them from life’s risks.
We help communities solve economic problems by investing in their entrepreneurial spirit.
