Citywide Self-Sustaining Model

The 'Citywide Self-Sustaining Model' is an integrated approach to urban programming that aims to maximize World Vision's contribution to large scale, sustained impact in the lives of the most vulnerable children in urban areas.

The model leverages World Vision's global branding and local presence, with emphasis on scaling with and through partners, building coalitions for effective action, and influencing policy development and implementation.

It proposes exponential growth with and through partners, generating sustainable social impact in cities, focusing on inclusion of the most vulnerable, especially children.

The intended outcomes of the model include:

  • Identification and inclusion of the most vulnerable children and groups.
  • Build coalitions and partnerships for citywide scale, effectiveness and impact.
  • Contribution to global and national discourse and dialogue that shape urban policy.
