Rising to respond
World Vision is working to save lives, reduce human suffering, and strengthen the resilience of 420,000 people.
Burkina Faso is a new operational area for World Vision’s humanitarian emergency response. World Vision will provide life-saving support, to reduce suffering while strengthening resilience among women, men, boys, and girls, regardless of religion, race, ethnicity, or gender. World Vision’s initial operations are targeting six provinces with an aim of reaching more than 420,000 conflict and humanitarian crisis affected people, 59% of whom are children under the age of 18 years.
For more than 40 years, World Vision has partnered with communities in West Africa from rural agricultural villages, to disaster, conflict and fragile contexts. Our decades of experience have taught us that the most effective way to transform lives is through a holistic approach. Our ultimate goal is to ensure all children are cared for; protected, educated, and feel loved. Our strategy is a promise to build brighter futures for vulnerable children in West Africa. The Sustainable Development Goals, guide our development and emergency-response programming.
