We’ve had the privilege of making history

Over the last two decades, World Vision has worked to preserve, improve and influence U.S. foreign assistance policies and programs that positively affect millions of lives around the world. Learn about the impact we’ve made as we follow God’s call to speak up on behalf of the poor and vulnerable.
