World Vision is committed to partnering with the people of Mauritania to improve their lives today and to help enact sustainable solutions for the future of their children, families, and communities. World Vision's child sponsorship program plays a vital role in this partnership.
World Vision came to Mauritania in the 1970s as a response to the eminent drought that affected the whole region of West Africa. World Vision established a National Office in Nouakchott 1983.
World Vision currently has three Bases in Mauritania through which it has been cooperating with the Mauritanian government and communities to provide a range of long-term development, resiliency, and emergency relief initiatives.
World Vision Mauritania operates in the regions of Nouakchott, Brakna, and Assaba. These Bases include 15 ADPs (Area Development Program): 4 in Nouakchott, 6 in Brakna, and 5 in Assaba.
