Security, Safety and Resilience

In World Vision, the safety and security of our staff and the children and families in our programmes is our number one priority.

We work in some of the most difficult and challenging security contexts in the world, and we believe we can only serve the most vulnerable children when we know their contexts well.

This is why our approach to security is based on a locally informed, adaptable, flexible approach built on continuously learning and improving. We constantly review, adapt and respond changing security situations – often in the space of a few hours.

Security is more than guards, guns and gates. In World Vision, we take a holistic strategic, risk-based approach to security, safety and resilience, as we believe this is the best way to keep our people and programmes safe.

Our local, regional and global security teams find safe ways to reach vulnerable children, by advising, training, responding and setting and following high industry standards for our work.

Strong security, safety and resilience contributes to realising hope, joy and justice for vulnerable children, and we are proud to be partners in making our work to serve all people, regardless of religion, race, ethnicity, or gender possible, as a demonstration of God’s unconditional love for all people.
