World Vision and the European Union
Our work with the European Union (EU) combines advocacy, communications and funding strategies. We aim to positively impact the lives of the most vulnerable children by ensuring that they are protected, their rights are respected and their voices are heard by EU policy makers and donors.
We are committed towards the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) with a particular focus on the most vulnerable children, Child Participation, and Child Rights.
Our work seeks to influence EU institutions and other partners to join forces in efforts towards ending violence against children. We work towards a much higher investment and quality programming for children’s rights and well-being, with a particular focus on the most vulnerable and hardest to reach children and families.
Our Approaches and Thematics
World Vision EU Representation brings the most vulnerable children’s voices and concerns to EU decision-makers and influencers through child participation. Our role is to ensure that the protection of children and their rights remain a strong priority of the EU’s external development and humanitarian actions and investment.
World Vision as an EU Implementing Partner
The European Union is not only an essential donor in development and humanitarian aid; it is also a principled child-rights committed actor. World Vision EU Representation ensures that the World Vision Partnership is equipped with adequate knowledge and resources, allowing access to EU funding. By implementing quality and impactful actions worldwide supported by the EU, World Vision can reinforce its work in assisting the most vulnerable children, families and communities.
It takes a world to end violence against children
Violence is the world’s worst crime against children. It affects 1.7 billion children every year and is happening in every country, city and community. We believe a world without violence against children is possible. In 2017, World Vision launched a global campaign called ‘It Takes A World to End Violence Against Children’.
