World Vision Myanmar


World Vision Myanmar was established in 1993. Since then, it has expanded its programs in various sectors. These sectors include education, child protection, health, livelihood, disaster response, and risk reduction. We want every child to have a good education, healthcare, safety, and a secure family income.

Today, World Vision works in 31 areas and has 40 special projects in 12 states and regions. We have approximately 600 staff and 5,000 volunteers. More than 1.4 people including nearly 500,000 children are benefiting annually from World Vision Myanmar’s work. World Vision Myanmar has been working with communities, government, and NGOs in specific areas for 12-15 years.

World Vision Myanmar supports the Convention on the Rights of the Child. We also encourage children to be involved in planning programs at different levels.

VisionFund Myanmar, a subsidiary of World Vision Myanmar, provides high-quality financial services to underprivileged people to benefit from inclusive finance and unlock their economic potential.

The two groups collaborate to merge operations and assist communities with their needs, particularly in terms of employment and financial inclusion. We also ensure the sustainability of these efforts.

Our Areas of Focus


World Vision is a trusted partner in Myanmar, dedicated to helping vulnerable children and their families. They are committed to making a long-lasting positive difference in the lives of these children and their communities.

World Vision has been assisting vulnerable children for more than 30 years. They do this through relief, development, and advocacy. Their goal is to improve the lives of these children holistically.

We collaborate with various organizations to support and continue the important work that improves the lives of the children we assist. These organizations include churches, faith groups, governments, businesses, community organizations, and NGOs.

We assist children and communities in getting ready for disasters.

We do this by educating them about safety, their rights, and how to react during emergencies.

We help children and families in need by working with experts, having supplies ready, and being present in the community.

Post-disaster, we stay. Shifting our focus to recovery, we actively help children and their families rebuild their lives.

Children going back to school



Our transformational development approach focuses on collaborative work with families and with local, national, and global partners.

We assist children in being active within their families. This helps them to have a happy and fulfilled life in their body, mind, and spirit.

Adapting our initiatives to local contexts, we consistently refine and learn, ensuring the highest impact for children through seamlessly integrated technical programmes.

We focus our advocacy at the local level on changing practices that affect the most vulnerable children.

By equipping essential knowledge to children, parents, and communities, we empower them to actively engage in advocacy efforts.

We have two global campaigns in Myanmar. One is called "End violence against children" and the other is called "ENOUGH."
