World Vision is a Christian relief and development organisation working to create lasting change in the lives of children, families and communities living in poverty. World Vision serves all people regardless of religion, race, ethnicity or gender. As a child-focused organization, WV’s work focuses on children, ensuring they are protected and their basic needs are met. WVV has a total income of around US$ 19,000,000 (FY16) with funding from 14 support countries in Europe, Asia, the Americas and Australia. Funding of WVV consists of sponsorship program funding (70%) and PNS/grants (30%). WVV employs about 450 staff, of which 99% are Vietnamese nationals.

Currently, World Vision Vietnam is implementing 40 Area Development Programmes (ADPs) which operate in 5 zones: North (Hung Yen, Hoa Binh, Hai Phong and Dien Bien), Yen Bai – Tuyen Quang, Thanh Hoa, Central & Highlands (Quang Tri, Quang Nam – Danang, DakNong) and South (Quang Ngai, Binh Thuan, Ho Chi Minh). WVV’s ADPs focus within one administrative district of a province which usually populated by ethnic minority people with high rates of poverty. A uniqueness of WVV’s Development Program Approach (DPA) is that ADP team members are based at district level where the ADP is located, which enables them to work closely with government partners and communities on a daily basis. Beside the ADPs, WVV is also implementing different Special and Grant Projects to meet the specific needs of vulnerable children in both ADP and non-ADP areas.
