Discover Who We Are
Even the most vulnerable children deserve a chance at a bright future. As a global Christian relief, development and advocacy organisation we help children, families and communities overcome poverty and injustice, irrespective of religion, race, ethnicity or gender.
It all started in 1947 when our founder, Bob Pierce, gave the last $5 in his pocket to a missionary orphanage for the care of an abandoned Chinese girl. Since Bob founded World Vision more than 70 years ago, we have gone places others would not, and done tasks others could not, including the purchase of a ship in 1979 to rescue refugee families stranded at sea off the coast of Vietnam. Today, we continue to work in the places where it is hardest to be a child because we believe that is where we are needed most.
