Gender

Integrating gender into programming can be the key to catalysing transformation in a community. Applying gender equity across the life cycle can break cycles of poverty and deprivation, allowing boys and girls to enjoy life in all its fullness.

Because gender norms are so deeply entrenched in communities and often a source of injustice and systemic poverty, failing to understand and address these negative norms can inhibit the success of World Vision’s contribution to the well-being of girls and boys.

World Vision supports programming and policy that transforms individuals, relationships, systems and structures toward gender justice for a more equitable world that promotes the dignity and well-being of every man, woman, boy and girl.
