World Vision is a Christian relief, development and advocacy organization dedicated to working with children, families, and communities to overcome poverty and injustice. Motivated by our Christian faith, World Vision is dedicated to working with the world’s most vulnerable people. World Vision serves all people regardless of religion, race, ethnicity or gender. World Vision started in Korea in 1950 to meet the needs of children orphaned by the war in Korea. From there, the program expanded to other Asian nations and gradually spread to nearly a hundred countries.
World Vision started its long-term development work in Nepal in 2001. Over the past years, World Vision International Nepal (WVIN) has worked for the well-being of children partnering with communities in 14 districts of Nepal. At present, WVIN’s development program is being implemented in 11 districts namely Achham, Doti, Jumla, Kathmandu, Kailali, Lamjung, Morang, Rupandehi, Sunsari, Sindhuli, and Udayapur. After the devastating earthquake struck Nepal in April and May 2015, WVIN responded with immediate relief followed by recovery efforts in the worst-hit districts of Bhaktapur, Dhading, Dolakha, Gorkha, Kathmandu, Lamjung, Lalitpur, Nuwakot, Sindhuli and Sindhupalchowk working alongside humanitarian stakeholders, government and community partners. WVIN is currently working in Gorkha, Sindhupalchowk and Nuwakot districts to help families bounce back and strengthen their resilience with interventions in the areas of livelihoods, shelter, and infrastructure, and Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH).
