Our Impact

Changing the lives of the world's most vulnerable children.

Through World Vision's work, every 30 seconds... a family gets water... a hungry child is fed... a family receives the tools to overcome poverty.

Thanks to our generous supporters and partners; together, we reached over 3.1 million children across the world in 2018.

We supported 260 individual projects, including 51 projects with the World Food Programme, in 25 countries around the world.
