World Vision is a global Christian relief, development and advocacy organisation dedicated to helping children, families and their communities worldwide reach their full potential by tackling the root causes of poverty.

World Vision's Zambia Office (WVZ) currently has 40 large-scale Area Programmes (APs) spread across the country. Improving the well-being and the futures of children continues to be the focus of everything we do. Today, through our APs, World Vision's interventions are addressing food insecurity and other major challenges through proven programming approaches in agriculture and livelihoods support, water and sanitation, education, health, infrastructure development, and child protection; all in the process of transforming lives of vulnerable children and their families.

The Board is seeking to add senior industry leaders and influencers in their respective fields to serve as Friends of World Vision on a voluntary basis. The purpose of the Friends of WVZ initiative is to create a pool of potential Board Members and widen WVZ’s network of people in society who may be interested in volunteering and/or getting to know about the ministry of World Vision.
