We receive ongoing support from Irish Aid, the official overseas development programme of the Irish Government. Irish Aid assist our work through Ireland’s Civil Society Partnership for A Better World 2023-2027.
With Irish Aid support we run our NOURISH programme (Nature-Based Opportunities Underpinning Resilient and Sustainable Households) in Tanzania, Uganda, Mauritania, Solomon Islands and Vanuatu. Recognising the ever-increasing impacts of climate change on the most vulnerable households and communities, this programme sets out to build resilience, particularly in relation to food and nutrition security.
We address the protection and education of women and girls with our EMPOWER (Enabling Meaningful Participation of Women and Girls for Essential Rights) programme in DRC, Somalia, South Sudan & Syria. This Programme focuses on building the resilience of women and children in protracted crises, through increased access to education and protection services.
Through Irish Aid’s Acute Crisis Stream, prepositioned funding allows World Vision to quickly respond to rapid-onset disasters such as floods or earthquakes, and acute chronic crises, such as conflict or drought. We provide lifesaving support based on the needs of the affected populations; this can include emergency health services, water and sanitation, non-food items, protection services or livelihood assistance. In 2023, funding has so-far been used to respond to Tropical Cyclones Kevin and Judy in Vanuatu, providing seeds and tools to affected populations; and to the Turkey Syria Earthquake, through the provision of child-friendly spaces for children affected by the earthquake in Azaz, North West Syria.
