Mission Statement

“World Vision is a Christian humanitarian organization dedicated to working with children, families, and their communities worldwide to reach their full potential by tackling the causes of poverty and injustice. We serve approximately 100 million people in nearly 100 countries, including 1.6 million in the U.S. In communities around the world, we join with local people to find lasting ways to improve the lives of poor children and families. Motivated by our faith in Jesus Christ, we serve alongside the poor and oppressed as a demonstration of God’s unconditional love for all people. …

World Vision’s advocacy office in Washington, D.C., was started in 1985. Our team of policy experts is responsible for working with the U.S. Congress and the Executive Branch to make sure the needs of the world’s poor are represented. …

Our policy positions and advocacy campaigns are focused on specific issues rooted in World Vision’s work with the poor in their communities.”
