We believe in the power of a person’s voice. Its ability to do the impossible, battle inequality and call for justice.
As we work alongside communities to build a better world for children, our advocacy challenges the policies, systems, structures, practices and attitudes that make it difficult for vulnerable children and their families to experience life in all its fullness.
By addressing the systemic contributors to and causes of poverty, World Vision’s advocacy work ensures that community transformation is sustainable and scalable. We want all children, everywhere, to live in safety and dignity.
World Vision advocates at the local, national, regional and global levels, informed by our experience working with communities.
COVID-19 is creating a crisis unlike any we’ve known before. It’s threatening the lives of the world’s poorest children, as they become more vulnerable to exploitation, hunger and diseases. We need to act, and we need to act fast.
As a part of our biggest ever global emergency response, World Vision has partnered with Oxfam, Christian World Service, and The Anglican Movement Diocese of Wellington calling on our government, to increase foreign aid in the wake of COVID-19. Read our open letter to the incoming government.
We need your help. Sign the petition below today, and download and send this letter to Hon Nanaia Mahuta, the new Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade explaining why you feel foreign aid should be increased.
The time to act is now. Please share this with your friends and family.

Today, more people are living in slavery than ever before. Out of an estimated 40 million, one-third are children. Children who need your help.
They need your help when you’re at the supermarket buying sugar that small hands have harvested. They need your help when you’re buying new sneakers, with soles that have been glued together by someone who should be at school.
Slavery is happening right now, in our corner of the world, in our supply chains. Two-thirds of all people living in slavery are in the Asia-Pacific region, where the things we use every day are made.
In March, we’ll be asking you to join us in standing against slavery in New Zealand supply chains. Stay tuned to find out more.
