Our work with the EU

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.

It takes a world to end violence against children

Global Campaign

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’.
