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 16 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.

WVV’s ADPs focus within one administrative district of a province which usually populated by ethnic minority people with very high rates of poverty.
