World Vision relies upon the trust of its stakeholders (the children, families and communities we seek to serve, and the donors, supporters, host governments, and other NGOs, faith groups and others with whom we partner)) to fulfil its Mission. By making ourselves ‘accountable’, we demonstrate that we are worthy of this trust.
WV is committed to sharing data with relevant stakeholders to ensure healthy dialogue and transparency, guided by the organization’s Open Information policy. World Vision is committed to sharing information openly, however, there are legal, operational and practical considerations that need to be taken into account, balancing our commitment to accountability and transparency with our obligations to other stakeholders, including our staff, sponsors, donors, our partners, and particularly the children and communities with whom we work.
If the information sought is not readily available in World Vision publications or on our website, requests for information can be addressed either to the World Vision Office in the country concerned or emailed to World Vision International (firstname.lastname@example.org). Contact details for National Offices are available on the WVI website.
World Vision is continuing to transition to publicly reporting our financial flows using the International Aid Transparency Initiative (IATI) standard. IATI is a voluntary, multi-stakeholder initiative that seeks to improve the transparency of aid, development, and humanitarian resources in order to increase their effectiveness in tackling poverty.
In our pursuit to realise the International Aid Transparency Initiative (IATI) objectives, WV has defined a roadmap committed to publishing on IATI, centralising and publishing WV’s information under one legal entity, World Vision International. We currently publish on all grants and are currently working to publish on all types of funding, in additional to our results. Data can be viewed at dportal.org and as an xml file.
*UK and Netherlands publish their own data
