2017 was hugely exciting for World Vision. Our global partnership has come together behind an ambitious promise to transform the lives of the world’s most vulnerable children by 2030.

Our new UK strategy, launched this year, reflects that promise and sets out with sharper focus than ever before how we will stand with the world’s most vulnerable children, protect them and inspire others to join us.

Meanwhile, our projects have continued to help 3 million children across 40 countries.
