Advocacy

Advocacy is essentially the process of raising awareness about an issue, pointing out gaps in responses to it and encouraging changes to be made to fill these gaps. It is about getting people involved to make a difference.

Keeping informed about how children around the world are living, what is causing those conditions and what can be done about it can make a difference.

World Vision advocates for the protection of children and the promotion of their rights,

with a particular focus on vulnerable children affected by the loss of their parents, child trafficking, child protection, violence and abuse, children in armed conflict, child labour, and ensuring children’s participation in their own development.

World Vision endorses the principles and articles of the United Nations.
