Community Transformation


At the heart of World Vision’s work is community development. We take a holistic approach, working alongside communities to tackle the root causes of poverty and create sustainable change.

We partner with local communities, governments and other organisations over 10 to 15 years to address challenges such as a lack of food and water, health, education and livelihoods. We believe this is the most effective way to help communities take ownership of their own development and become self-sustainable.


Where we work

Our work currently spans 30 Area Development Programmes in 14 countries, where we invest in the sustainable development of Clean Water & Sanitation, Education, Resilience & Livelihood, Child Protection and Health & Nutrition.

The Life of an Area Development Programme

The planning phase in our Area Development programme is to build trust and laying the groundwork for future projects.
The first phase is to begin our various community improvement projects.
The second phase is to build confidence in the community and improve the lives of the children.
By the final phase of our community projects, we have helped the community and families more self-reliant.
