World Vision believes that ending extreme poverty is possible.  But it won’t happen until the people who struggle to survive on less than $1.90 a day get the tools they need to change their circumstances.

As part of the global effort to end extreme poverty by 2030, we are launching a massive scale-up plan of our proven economic empowerment approach, THRIVE.

Economic Empowerment: THRIVE 2030

This 8-year plan aims to reach 10 million people living in extreme poverty in 10 countries with the tools they need to lift themselves out of extreme poverty.

But we can’t do it without you.  Your investment will allow us to deliver four key tools that are proven to drive radical economic transformation—moving hard-working people from barely surviving to thriving:

    1. Biblical Empowered Worldview – This powerful curriculum is the foundation of THRIVE. It builds confidence, shifts mindsets, and promotes a biblically based view of identity, responsibility, and accountability.
    2. Savings for Transformation Groups– Savings groups enable community members – most often women – to gain basic financial knowledge, including how to save and pool their money, borrow money, pay back loans and make financial decisions.
    3. Local Value Chain Development – Helps farmers and small entrepreneurs increase their incomes by working together in groups to better understand and connect to markets and increase their profitability.
    4. FAST Loans (Finance Accelerating Savings group Transformation) – These loans to mature savings groups provide additional capital enabling members to take loans for business opportunities. This results in higher household incomes for members and higher savings for the group – usually an increase of 40–60%.

 

Together, we will be the hands and feet of Jesus for millions of people who simply need someone to believe in them.

Our Commitment

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.
