Inspired by the Christian values, we are dedicated to work with the most vulnerable children, families and the communities regardless of religion, race, ethnicity and gender, to create the lasting change in their lives.
With our four ministry objectives:

We promise to end the extreme poverty by 2030.
Where We Work
To improve the lives of the most vulnerable children and the families, World Vision has been active in Myanmar since 1991 focusing on Education, Health & Nutrition, Livelihoods and Child Protection sectors. The Humanitarian and Emergency team has also been active in any types of disasters, providing humanitarian relief support for the effected families and communities to be able to recover and build resilience.
In 2018, World Vision Myanmar has successfully taken part in the global campaign theming “It Takes a Myanmar to End Physical Violence against Children”, launching officially in Nay Pyi Taw and public mobilization events in Yangon, Mawlamyaing and Mandalay.
With over 600 staffs and 5,000 volunteers, World Vision Myanmar is implementing (33) Area Development Programs and 51 grant projects in 12 out of 14 states and regions.
