We want all children to live in safety and dignity. Our advocacy work at the local, national and global level seeks to bring to light unjust policies and practices, and mobilise a global movement of people committed to keeping children safe.
Advocacy is an essential element of World Vision’s work. When structural and systemic social shortfalls deny people the right to speak up for themselves, we lend them a voice by bringing to light policies, practices and attitudes that perpetuate inequality and deny social justice.
World Vision stays on top of policies and laws affecting children and their rights, stepping up and speaking out where necessary in efforts to uphold the rights of vulnerable children all over the world. We also work with governments to promote awareness and educate people on their rights to opportunity and fullness of life.
We believe in the power of a person’s voice and actions – in their ability to move mountains. We believe in the power of YOUR voice and actions to remove inequality and call for justice. Here are some ways you can join us as advocates and build a better world for children:
