Since 1975, World Vision has been working with the communities, families and children in the Holy Land. World Vision works in Jerusalem, the West Bank and Gaza serving the most poor and marginalized. In addition to its relief and development work, Word Vision is also committed to advocating for the improved well-being of children living under Israeli occupation and empowering Palestinian and Israeli voices to advocate for peace and justice. In partnership with local organisations, World Vision works with communities, families and children to create a better future today.
World Vision Jerusalem-West Bank-Gaza works through a progressive approach to development using Area Development Programs (ADPs). An ADP is a holistic long-term (10-15 years) program in a cluster of villages driven by the specific, self-identified needs of that community based on levels of marginalization within its geographical area. Fourteen Area Development Programmes operate in Bethlehem, West Ramallah, East and South Hebron, Northeast, West, and South Jenin, Southeast Salfit, East, Central, North, and South Nablus, as well as North and South Gaza.
