Every child deserves to experience God’s love.
Jesus showed us that children are blessings to be protected, guided, and nurtured when he said, “Let the little children come to me and do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of heaven” (Matthew 19:14, ESV).
Loving and caring for children is at the core of who are at World Vision. We believe that the success of a community is inseparable from the well-being of its children. We desire to see every child grow in their understanding of God’s love—and to experience life in all its fullness.
After more than 70 years of serving God by serving the poor around the globe, World Vision has found that success in the spiritual nurture of children is built on three foundations. Children need to be:
- Nurtured by parents.
- Supported by pastors, other Christian leaders, and teachers.
- Enabled and empowered through child and youth programs.
In partnership with parents, pastors, Christian faith leaders, and local ministry partners we create opportunities and remove barriers for children to experience God’s love—and for them to know Jesus’ offer of life in all its fullness.
Your gift will help World Vision to:
- Equip churches and schools with biblically based materials and resources.
- Train teachers on creating programs that engage children’s interest and explore God’s purpose for their lives.
- Establish mentoring programs and ministry clubs for children and youth.
- Partner closely with local churches worldwide to strengthen their reach and impact for Jesus.
Provide Bibles to churches and families so they can read the Word daily.
With your help, World Vision plans to engage 46 million people in 50 countries, with Christian discipleship activities and tools to support the spiritual nurture of children, including training 500,000 local pastors and leaders to multiply the impact of local churches.
Thank you for prayerfully considering partnering with us in this life-saving work by making a gift to the Christian Discipleship Fund.

At World Vision, stewardship is an integral part of everything we do. In rare cases where donations exceed what is needed, or where local conditions prevent program implementation, World Vision will redirect funds to similar activities to help children and families in need.
The multiplying effect from grants and donated goods may change throughout the year on identical or similar offers due to variations in the start and end dates of donor grants and our programs.
