World Vision is a relief, development and advocacy organization dedicated to working with children, families and communities to overcome poverty and injustice, promote development and resilience. Since 1993, World Vision Somalia Country Program has been at the forefront of emergency response, establishing operations in difficult to access locations and reach those most in need. We aim to lift poor and marginalized households out of the vicious cycle of dependence by addressing the underlying causes of vulnerability to environmental and socio-economic shocks.
We endeavour to strengthen and diversify livelihoods, promote access to markets and financial services, increase access to basic services in health, nutrition, water, protection and education as well as enhance community governance and self-help mechanisms. We also enhance the capacity of civil society and government to lead development, as well as advocate for policies that support sustainable development, inclusive governance and access to services and protection for women and children.
