World Vision works with communities in Vanuatu to help eliminate poverty and its causes. We opened our office in Vanuatu in the early 1980s and began education, training and income generating projects. We currently work in the four provinces of Tafea, Sanma, Shefa and Torba. World Vision is committed to implementing gender-equitable and disability-inclusive programming. Our projects have expanded to include water, sanitation, and hygiene, agriculture, economic development, addressing gender-based violence, promotion of healthy relationships, and disaster risk reduction and preparedness.

More water for all

When 11000 people were evacuated from Ambae, one of the biggest challenges was reliable access to water. World Vision arranged for water to be trucked in and installed water catchments to improve access to water.

Chief John shared, “World Vision has given us access to more clean water, helped us build new toilets and talked to us about water management and hygiene.”
