About World Vision Armenia
World Vision serves in more than 100 countries around the world to support the wellbeing of millions of children and their families. World Vision started its operations in Armenia right after the devastating earthquake in 1988 by delivering humanitarian aid. Later, along with the humanitarian support, World Vision started implementing development projects. In 2000, World Vision launched its first ‘Child Sponsorship’ programme in Gyumri marking the start of long-term community development interventions. Today, World Vision operates 15 offices in Armenia, and more than 110,000 children throughout the country directly benefit from the organisation’s development projects.
