About World Vision

How We Work

World Vision works with children, families, and communities worldwide to help them gain access to some of life’s most essential resources. Things like:

  • Water and sanitation
  • Food security and agriculture
  • Education
  • Health care
  • Economic opportunity

By working alongside families, World Vision helps to empower communities to become self-sustaining. When World Vision leaves an area, the community is able to stand on its own.

So How Does Team World Vision Fit In?

Team World Vision is a program of World Vision that enables YOU to help fight global poverty. When you join Team World Vision, you run and fundraise to help communities in need. The money you raise impacts real children by providing entire communities with things like clean water and sanitation.
