Partnership Philosophy

No organisation or government working alone can solve child vulnerability.  World Vision believes that only by working together with children, their communities, and our supporters and partners, the lives of the world’s most vulnerable children can be transformed.

At every level – from a child’s community to global – World Vision works with partners from across society to influence and bring our expertise and resource to transform children’s lives.  We value the role, expertise and resources of businesses, of governments, of faith actors, and other organisations in addressing child well-being.

We work to make our partnerships positive for every partner.  This means we have a commitment to seek mutual benefit; to respect and values others' contributions; to manage power dynamics carefully; to listen and be responsive, and to communicate openly and transparently.

We measure our partnering practice and make sure it is fully aligned to global humanitarian standards. This is part of upholding our commitments to the Grand Bargain, and applies to all of our work in development, fragile and humanitarian emergency contexts and advocacy.
