Partnership Opportunities

Community Development:

World Vision operates more than 1,400 active area development projects around the world.

Corporations can support our life-changing work in a number of ways through one of these areas of focus:

  • Clean water and sanitation
  • Sustainable agriculture
  • Health and nutrition
  • Education
  • Economic development

In all five areas, our staff especially focus on women and girls, as well as orphans and vulnerable children.

Disaster Relief:

Our extensive disaster response global infrastructure enables us to respond quickly almost anywhere in the world. Our reputation as a “first in, last out” agency means that we are both an early responder and an ongoing partner as communities recover and rebuild.

In 2012 alone, World Vision responded to 87 humanitarian emergencies, assisting 10 million disaster survivors, refugees, and displaced persons.

We are signatories to the major codes of conduct for best practices in emergency situations, most notably those of the International Red Cross and the Sphere Project.

Public-Private Partnerships

World Vision delivers dynamic development interventions, working with the private and public sectors in joint equity partnerships.

As one of USAID’s top 10 nonprofit implementing partners, in 2012 we managed a U.S. grant portfolio valued at more than $750 million.
