Our Work


World Vision Indonesia promotes active, joyful and effective learning (AJEL) and early childhood care and education (ECCD) as its programs to give children better opportunities to develop their potential. We also introduce easier and more interesting mathematics teaching method and establish children study groups. Not only school lessons were taught at such study groups, but also life skills that will open up opportunities, moreover among drop-out students, for their future. 

In certain areas such as in Poso District in Central Sulawesi, World Vision ties cooperation with local education office and other partners to initiate the Harmony Education. This educational approach is tailored to disseminate the spirit of brotherhood and peaceful coexistence among the children, and also to strengthen reconciliation process among the local community torn by communal conflicts in the past. 

In Jakarta, World Vision initiates mobile library services to provide educative reading books to poor urban children. This facility was also operated in some areas hard-hit by disasters, such as for children impacted by disasters in West Java and in West Sumatra.

For high school graduates in some villages in Jakarta, whose families could not financially support them for further study, World Vision facilitates them to join a one-year course to better-prepare them in entering the job market. 

Child Health Now

To improve the health of mothers and children in Indonesia, World Vision through the Child Health Now campaign set up partnership with the government and non-government institutions to intensify effort to reduce mortality rate among under-five children. Together with the UN body and some international and national non-governmental organizations, we initiate Maternal and Child Health Joint Movement which has been launched in Jakarta since June 2010. 


Partnering with the government, World Vision supports village integrated health posts (posyandu) in revitalizing their services as well as training posyandu cadres and health workers. We facilitate training for young mothers to improve their knowledge about child development and to provide more nutritious food for their children. For pregnant mothers, we help promote mother-to-mother support groups to help them sharing knowledge about pregnancy, giving birth, exclusive breastfeeding, and nutrition.  

To share information related  to the danger of HIV and AIDS, we help equip many school children to have better knowledge about the deadly virus and trained scores of them as peer educators to spearhead the dissemination of the right information on HIV and AIDS to their peers and family members. For religious leaders, we organize a series of Channel of Hope workshops that build their capacity in helping their congregation to better understand about HIV and AIDS and to aviod stigmatization. 

Economic Development 

World Vision facilitates trainings to the members of facilitated self-help groups in several provinces to increase their knowledge related to business management as well as links them with potential buyers or financial institutions. At some places, we also distribute better-yielding seedlings to local farmers to boost the harvest and generate more earnings. 


World Vision believes that children have the basic rights to fulfill. Therefore, we promote their rights to get birth certificates, facilitate the establishment of children forums, and encourage local governments to create cities friendlier to children growth and development. We also build the capacity of communities to understand their rights and obligation as well as link them to the government so that they can nurture better communication and cooperation. 

Disaster Response 

During emergency response, we deploy our qualified team directly to the disaster areas to distribute emergency aid. During major disasters, we also involve in the reconstruction phase to further ease the lives of the survivors. Among the recent disasters we responded are earthquake in West Sumatra; Merapi eruption in Yogyakarta, and earthquake in Sigi, Central Sulawesi. To prepare the community, especially those living in disaster prone areas, we have facilitated disaster risk reduction training to help them minimize the impact of future disaster.
