Our Leadership

A note from our President and CEO

Hello, I'm Andrew Morley, President and CEO of World Vision. I have served this tremendous organisation in senior positions for three years. During this time I've developed an unwavering devotion to our mission. In February of this year, World Vision honoured me by asking me to lead this organisation.

As proud sponsors to four children, my family and I have learned the importance of being part of World Vision's mission. As I've been given multiple opportunities to witness the global impact first hand, I'm particularly impressed by the approach to development and relief. It is the perfect mix of professionalism and relational.

For nearly 70 years World Vision has been helping to address poverty and injustice among the world’s poorest communities. Today, we operate in nearly 100 countries.

Among our 40,000 staff we have leading experts in child health, microfinance, agriculture, and education. Tens of thousands of volunteers help us implement our projects on a daily basis.

Our grass-roots approach to change allows us to know the people, the problems, and the potential of each community we serve. Wherever we go, we act and feel like a local non-governmental organisation. Our staff live within the community and learn all the hopes and challenges each community faces.

Our Promise to the world's most vulnerable children and our global strategy, is to strive for a world free of the worst forms of poverty by 2030 as included in the Sustainable Development Goals of the UN.

With our Christian beliefs as our foundation, we are committed to bringing hope to the world's most vulnerable children. We accept children of all faiths in our programs, and we don't try to make them Christian. We aim to make all aspects of our work both transparent and trustworthy.

Our staff is constantly sharing the hope of a brighter future; thru literacy programs, protecting children in conflict zones, saving starving babies from the long-lasting effects of malnutrition, and providing drinkable water to children and families. The people who partner with us are included on a journey of meaningful change for the world's poorest populations.

You have a decision to make—will you be one of those people? I hope so, because I am excited about the many opportunities we have to stand with people whose voices go unheard these days, especially children.

That’s our World Vision. May it be yours too.

Executive Leadership 

Leadership around the globe

With nearly 70 years of experience and a strong faith in Christ, World Vision is a unique global relief program that specializes in working with children and communities to help overcome poverty and injustice. As a partnership of national offices governed by their own boards, World Vision is united under one mission statement and shared core values. Our leaders around the world are inspired by our founder, Bob Pierce, who prayed for his heart to be broken by that which breaks the heart of God. Bob had the vision to bring this organisation to the world's most vulnerable people, and set an example to all who followed him.

Andrew meeting his sponsored child

On my second day as World Vision International president, I met Ivy in Ghana. She is one of four children my family and I sponsor. I loved talking with her about her life. My heart was deeply moved, knowing that we will contribute to her dreams through World Vision’s work.
