World Vision is a Christian relief, development and advocacy organization dedicated to work with children, families and communities to overcome poverty and injustice.
We aim for children to be protected, to develop their potential and to participate as change agents for their community.
World Vision began working in Peru in the eighties. Since 1994 works with development programs focused on children in rural and marginal urban areas of six regions. These programs include projects of health, nutrition, early education, as well as education, social skills, values, leadership and participation.
The aim is to promote means and opportunities for children, especially those living in poverty, to be protected from conception to the age of 18, having opportunities and spaces to develop their potential and participation.

• 103.779 children and their families from six regions of the country
• 693 rural and marginal urban communities in Lima, Ayacucho, Ancash, Huancavelica, La Libertad, and Cuzco.
