World Vision is a Christian, child-focused and community-based organization, dedicated to working with children, families and communities to overcome poverty and injustice.
World Vision first came to Armenia with emergency aid for the victims of the devastating December 1988 earthquake that hit the northern regions of the country. Within the first few months of the response, nearly US$3 million in medical supplies and relief was delivered. Since then, World Vision’s projects have transitioned beyond meeting the demands of crisis situations to supporting and promoting the positive development of communities.
Today, World Vision Armenia programming is focusing on children' health and development, child protection, youth issues and economic development.
World Vision works in 14 geographical regions of six marzes and the capital city Yerevan, serving more than 200 communities. Around 35 000 children are registered in our sponsorship programming.
The overall goal of World Vision is Armenia – a Home for Children and Youth Living with Hope and Dignity.
