Where we Work

Where we Work

We run programmes (APs) across three African nations

We go where the need is greatest

In the last 20 years, the number of people living in extreme poverty has dramatically reduced and continues to drop. But this good news hides a stark reality. Poverty is in retreat, but it is still prevalent in many parts of the world; in places where children suffer the most and not all organisations can reach. But World Vision can.

Backed by people like you, the places we work include some of most fragile and remote places on earth, reaching the most vulnerable and marginalised children and their communities. Children are born to thrive and enjoy life in all its fullness – and we will not stop until every child can reach their dreams.

Through World Vision’s work, every 60 seconds … a family gets water … a hungry child is fed … a family receives the tools to overcome poverty.

Partnerships with Area Programmes

Along with our Emergency Aid work, World Vision focuses on long-term development and World Vision Ireland has an active partnership with five Area Programmes (APs) across three African nations: Mauritania, Tanzania, and Uganda.

How we help communities

We care for every child. In particular, we’re focused on helping the most vulnerable; including those living in the world’s hardest places and most at risk of poverty, exploitation and abuse.

And that's not all - we empower communities and guide them to set their own goals and equip them so that progress made is sustained, and continued, long after we've left. 

Thanks to the generosity of donors like you, 3.4 million children are sponsored through World Vision, tackling the root causes of poverty.

Your support transforms lives

Thanks to people like you, we support children and families to work their way out of poverty, disasters and exploitation across the world.

What your support does:

Children in danger right now

Some countries are considered too fragile for an ongoing child sponsorship programme. But children in these places urgently need our help - and we are driven to go where the need is greatest. Join us in helping these at-risk children by donating regularly - starting from just €20 a month.

We will ensure it goes to those who need it the most.
