World Vision is a relief, development and advocacy organization dedicated to working with children, families and communities to overcome poverty and injustice. Motivated by our Christian faith, we serve the world's most vulnerable people. We are best known for our sponsorship program, through which Canadians sponsor more than 500,000 children overseas. World Vision also works to engage the Government of Canada, policy makers, other NGOs and Canadian supporters on policy change issues relating to the well-being of children in developing countries. World Vision serves approximately 100 million people in nearly 100 countries, regardless of religion, race, ethnicity or gender.

Vision Mondiale est une organisation de solidarité internationale qui lutte contre toutes les formes de pauvreté et d'injustice à travers ses programmes d'aide humanitaire d'urgence, de développement et ses actions de plaidoyer. Inspirés par nos valeurs chrétiennes, nous apportons une aide aux enfants et aux familles les plus démunis sans aucune forme de discrimination sociale, ethnique ou religieuse. A travers le programme de parrainage de Vision Mondiale, plus de 500 000 enfants sont parrainés par les Canadiens. Les actions de Vision Mondiale consistent également à engager le gouvernement du Canada, les décideurs politiques, d'autres ONG et le public canadien vis-à-vis des enjeux qui affectent le bien-être des enfants dans les pays en voie de développement. Quelques 100 millions de personnes bénéficient des programmes de Vision Mondiale dans une centaine de pays.
