Crucial for ending poverty for children
These include institutions, governments, corporations, faith communities and more at global, regional and local level.
"Partnering and collaboration wherever we work delivers the very best results for the world's vulnerable children"
- Andrew Morley, World Vision International President
We are pleased to work with thousands of partners. Those who work with us globally include:
Partners in nearly 100 countries worldwide
Area programmes and humanitarian responses
Provided in emergency funds to local partners
No organisation or government working alone can solve child vulnerability. World Vision believes that only by working together with children, their communities, and our supporters and partners, the lives of the world’s most vulnerable children can be transformed.
At every level – from a child’s community to global – World Vision works with partners from across society to influence and bring our expertise and resource to transform children’s lives. We value the role, expertise and resources of businesses, of governments, of faith actors, and other organisations in addressing child well-being.
We work to make our partnerships positive for every partner. This means we have a commitment to seek mutual benefit; to respect and values others' contributions; to manage power dynamics carefully; to listen and be responsive, and to communicate openly and transparently.
We measure our partnering practice and make sure it is fully aligned to global humanitarian standards. This is part of upholding our commitments to the Grand Bargain, and applies to all of our work in development, fragile and humanitarian emergency contexts and advocacy.

Featured Partner Projects
Lifesaving Hygiene Lessons
The WASH UP! program was expanded to empower young children with lifesaving sanitation and hygiene habits. Now working in a total of 11 countries across Africa, Latin America, Asia, and the Middle East, messages about using clean water, hand washing with soap, and proper latrine use are now reaching children across the globe. This program has also adapted to support the socio-emotional needs of Syrian refugee children, many of whom have experienced significant trauma.
A Partnership with Purpose
We know that access to proper nutrition is at the heart of realising the Sustainable Development Goals: well-nourished children are 33% more likely to escape the vicious cycle of poverty when they grow up. This is why, in 2013, World Vision, Royal DSM and Sight and Life signed a joint agreement that would bring better nutrition to millions of the world’s most vulnerable children.
Food Aid Delivery
In 2018 alone the WFP-World Vision partnership reached 9.3 million of the world’s most vulnerable people, across 29 countries. More than 50 per cent of beneficiaries were children. Two-thirds of the the World Food Programme’s support was used in improving the lives of children and their families in the top 10 fragile contexts where World Vision works.
