Who is World Vision?

 

World Vision is a Christian, child-focused and community-based organization, dedicated to working with children, families and communities to overcome poverty and injustice.

Unconditionally, we aspire for a world, where children enjoy good health, are educated for life, experience the love of God and their neighbors, and where they are cared for, protected and participate in decisions that affect their lives.

 


What types of projects does World Vision do in Armenia?

 

World Vision started operations in Armenia in 1988, providing emergency aid to people affected by the Spitak earthquake. Since then, World Vision’s projects in Armenia have transitioned beyond meeting the demands of crisis situations to promoting spiritual and physical transformation or more than 250 communities in six regions (marzes) and the capital Yerevan.
Currently, World Vision Armenia implements 14 long-term Area Programs, focusing on children' health and development, child protection, youth issues and economic development.
