World Vision’s main objective is the sustained well-being of children within families and communities, especially the poorest and most vulnerable. We improve the lives of children through long-term development programmes and by providing relief and rehabilitation in response to humanitarian emergencies caused by conflict or natural disaster. Through advocacy and policy engagement we address the root causes of poverty, working with children and their communities as active participants in shaping a better future. World Vision is a Christian organisation and works with people regardless of their religion, race, ethnicity or gender to overcome global poverty and injustice.

Sub national location information will only be included where there are no child protection or security concerns. Project level documentation will not be published. Project level expenditure will not be published as this reflects sub-activities of WVUK partners. In phase 1 where DFID funding is used as counterpart contibutions to a bigger project, only PPA contributions will be considered at this stage and not total budget/donors). WVUK will not disclose any information that may be confidential because of legal, commercial or contractual reasons or where premature disclosure would jeopardise any action WVUK is planning to take. Any information that may harm World Vision Operations either in the UK or overseas will also not be disclosed.

UK spending will be reflected in 3 groupings-a) programme management/salaries,b) consultancy and research in PPA thematic areas, c) organisational overheads (facility charge).
