Our Impact

You're changing the lives of the world's most vulnerable children.

Thanks to you, through World Vision's work, every 60 seconds... a family gets water... a hungry child is fed... a family receives the tools to overcome poverty.

Your generous support impacted over 4 million children across the world in 2019.

World Vision New Zealand raised $55,361,000 for international projects. Thanks to your kindness, we supported 257 individual projects, including 49 projects with the World Food Programme, in 24 countries around the world. Together, we responded to 11 emergencies across Africa, Asia, the Middle East and Pacific regions.

You are creating futures for children living in extreme poverty.

Child sponsorship empowers children and their communities by targeting the root causes that keep children trapped in poverty. 

Thanks to your life-changing support, together, we partner, plan and work alongside local community members to help build healthy, sustainable communities for children and families. Together, we supported children and their families in 28 community programmes across the world in 2019.

We believe development should be transformational, community-based and sustainable, and especially focused on the needs of children. 

Children living in communities like Buyamba in Uganda now have a much brighter future ahead of them. Your support has transformed the Buyamba community to be a place where children can realise the fullness of life.

Your action makes a huge impact on the lives of vulnerable children.
