Where We Work

World Vision International is active in nearly 100 countries worldwide. This makes us one of the largest emergency aid and overseas development aid organisations in the world. As part of this partnership, World Vision Ireland assists in emergency situations such as the conflicts in Syria and Gaza, the earthquake in Nepal and peace building in South Sudan.

Partnerships with Development Programmes

Along with our Emergency Aid work, World Vision focuses on long-term development and World Vision Ireland has an active partnership with 11 Area Development Programmes (ADPs) across six African nations: Kenya, Mauritania, Tanzania, Sierra Leone, Uganda, Swaziland.

What is an ADP? 

An ADP (Area Development Programme) is a 10-15 year community development programme, where World Vision works with an entire community to address and eradicate the causes of poverty. ADPs are a long-term approach to development, involving clear and consistent assessment, design, implementing, reporting, monitoring, evaluation and reflection phases. Each ADP is tailored to the needs of a specific community. World Vision works closely with local leaders and authorities and local partners to implement program activities.
