World Vision India is a Christian humanitarian organisation working to create lasting change in the lives of children, families and communities living in poverty and injustice. World Vision serves all people regardless of religion, caste, race, ethnicity or gender. Spread across 174 districts in India, World Vision works through long-term sustainable community development programmes and immediate disaster relief assistance.
Focus on Children: All development work World Vision India carries out is focused on building the capacity and ability of communities and families to ensure the wellbeing of children. The wellbeing of children includes ensuring children have access to education, health, protection and participation.
Grass root Based: World Vision India is an operational organisation involved in relief and development that is community-based. World Vision India's staff live with communities at grassroots level, learning from them and working alongside them while pursuing the goal of promoting the wellbeing of all children.
Partnering for Change: World Vision partners with communities, children, Government, civil society, corporations, academia, and faith based organisations to build a nation fit for children.
World Vision has responded to every major disaster in India in the last few decades including the 2004 Tsunami, Kashmir earthquake and recurring flood situations in various States. World Vision India is a member of several networks and coalitions at various levels.
World Vision India is committed to high standards of accountability and transparency. It is an expression of our core value on 'Stewardship.' Our commitment to accountability and transparency is to ensure we work effectively for the wellbeing of children. World Vision India continually strives to maintain high national and international standards of professional competence and is accountable through appropriate structures for achieving these standards.
World Vision India's policies, procedures, systems, practices, work culture, rigorous internal audits and statutory audits by reputed auditors as well as design, monitoring and evaluation of the programmes reflect our commitment to accountability and transparency. As part of World Vision International, we uphold a range of NGO standards to help benchmark our performance. We are an active member of the International NGO Charter of Accountability Company Limited and the Humanitarian Accountability Partnership. World Vision is also actively involved in the International Civil Society Organisation (CSO) Open Forum on Development Effectiveness and the International Aid Transparency Initiative.
At the grassroots, our partnership with Community Based Organisations keeps us accountable, committed, and responsive to the children and their communities. An independent Board exercises overall governance leadership, managing risks and ensuring compliance to statutory requirements.
World Vision India endeavours to convey a public image conforming to reality, to always speak and act honestly. God helping us, we intend to continually pursue excellence beyond compliance, in all aspects of our work - governance, management, operations and administration.
