World Vision Bangladesh
World Vision Bangladesh, a global Christian relief, development and advocacy organization creating lasting change in the lives of children, their families and communities living in contexts of poverty and injustice. We are committed to serve and partner with people in need. Through development, relief and advocacy, we pursue fullness of life of every child by serving the poor and oppressed regardless of religion, race, ethnicity or gender as a demonstration of God’s unconditional love of all people.
World Vision first involved with Bangladesh by responding to the cyclone victims of Bhola in 1970 during devastating tidal surges in the coastal areas of the country. Later the organization carried out relief operations in refugee camps in India in 1971. Following Bangladesh's independence in 1972, it started relief and rehabilitation programs as per invitation of the Bangladesh Government.
Presently World Vision Bangladesh is serving around 5 million children with Health, Nutrition, WASH, Education, Livelihood, Child protection, Sponsorship and Community engagement under 93 subs-districts of 30 administrative districts in 434 locations with 56 Area Programs, 18 private non sponsorship and 09 grant-funded projects. The objective of this organization is ‘To achieve sustainable well-being and build a brighter future for 5 million vulnerable children in Bangladesh by tackling causes and addressing effects of poverty, inequalities and injustices’.
