We advocate for lasting change. We believe in the power of a person’s voice and its ability to do the impossible, to battle inequality and call for justice. We relentlessly advocate for an end to violence against children and ensure the voices of the world’s most vulnerable children are heard loud and clear.
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. World Vision advocates at the local, national, regional and global levels, informed by our experience working with communities.
