Reaching children and communities in the hardest to reach places to bring poverty to an end
Who We Are:
World Vision International Lesotho (WVIL) is a member of World Vision International, a global Christian relief, development and advocacy organization dedicated to working with children, families and their communities to overcome poverty and injustice.
As witnesses, World Vision leaders and staff participate in God’s work in this world, serving as ambassadors of His spiritual and social transformation. We affirm the value of all our ministries as expressions of witness to Christ’s life and love. This is expressed and manifested in all aspect of our lives, deeds, words and signs.
For over 37 years WVIL has has been committed to protecting and caring for children in Lesotho especially the most vulnerable; walking in the footsteps of our Founder Bob Pierce who gave his last $5 to help care for an abandoned child in 1947.
Our calling to Lesotho is to bring extreme poverty to an end by reaching children who continue to struggle in the most vulnerable and hardest to reach places in Lesotho because we believe that even in the places where it is hardest to be a child, God is there and we should be there too.
Through our focus area interventions, World Vision continues to address child protection through transforming communities to build safe and secure childhoods; Building secure livelihoods to break the cycles of poverty; promoting good hygiene and nutrition for children towards good health, spurring them to live fuller, freer lives; provision of access to clean water, sanitation and hygiene, bringing water, dignified sanitation and effective hygiene practices to communities, schools and health care centers.
Everything we do has just one goal: Improved and sustained wellbeing of children (boys and girls) especially the most vulnerable. Our transformational development approach is holistic – instead of focusing on a single issue, we look at all the interconnected areas that affect the well-being of vulnerable children in a community.
Through our Advocacy and global campaigns, we work for justice for children. we work to change unjust policies, practices, and structures affecting the most vulnerable children. Through our current global campaign, ENOUGH, we are catalysing a global movement of people committed to ending child hunger and malnutrition.
