Ten years ago, on the heels of the 2008 global financial crisis, God prompted World Vision to take a bold step in our history — to double down on ending extreme poverty. In faith, we responded to the call and launched the Campaign For Every Child, a five-year, $500 million plan to reach 20 million people worldwide.
By His power and provision, a community of passionate donor partners stepped up in extraordinary ways. Together, we exceeded our goals and helped more than 25 million women, men, and children transform their lives.
Today, as all of humanity reels from a global pandemic, we are more committed to our God-inspired mission than ever. And together with our partners, we are stepping out in faith once again with the Every Last One campaign — an unprecedented $1 billion plan to equip and empower 60 million* of the world’s most vulnerable people with information, tools, and support to lift themselves out of poverty.
God made a promise to the nation of Israel in Jeremiah 29:11: “I know the plans I have for you ... plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” This is a powerful reminder that He is in control, even today as millions of children and families are held back by poverty and oppression.
We are God’s people. This is God’s ministry. And this is our time.
My prayer is that He will intensify our love for the poor like never before. Together, we have all we need to change the world.
* Because of World Vision’s multi-sector approach, some people will participate in more than one program.
