About Us

We work in the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK - North Korea) because our vision for every child is life in all its fullness. We are committed to helping children, families and communities overcome poverty and injustice.

Driven by a desire to serve God and make a lasting impact in the world, World Vision is a leading global partner in building brighter futures for children, regardless of religion, race, ethnicity, or gender.

World Vision has been working in the DPRK since 1994, with current operations in 6 out of 9 provinces, implemented through World Vision International and World Vision Korea. Programs span a range of sectors including food security, health, water, agriculture, and emergency relief.
