 About World Vision Zambia

World Vision Zambia is a member of the World Vision International Partnership. We are a Christian relief, development and advocacy organization dedicated to working with children, families, and their communities to reach their full potential by tackling the root causes of poverty and injustice.

Where we work

World Vision began working in Zambia in 1981 and we are a Zambian Non Government Organization with a local Board of Directors. World Vision has a vast reach in Zambia, with long-term development projects called Area Programmes, as well as short-term grant-funded projects that are spread across the country nationwide. World Vision Zambia implements development projects in the following key areas: health and nutrition; livelihoods and resilience; education; child protection; disaster management; and water, hygiene and sanitation (WASH).

Children are at the heart of our work. Today, World Vision Zambia works in over 72 districts across 10 provinces to serve vulnerable children and communities in the country. With a workforce of over 500 professional staff, we work closely with communities, partners, and the Government of the Republic of Zambia to ensure vulnerable children live life in all of its fullness.
