The Difference
We don't just give. We invest.

What is The Difference?

Giving is generous, but investing is life changing. It’s the World Vision difference.

With the support of Australians like you, we invest in people to help them lift themselves out of poverty. This means working hand-in-hand with communities in need to address the root causes of poverty and injustice. Thanks to your generosity, we can be there every step of the way. Helping local families to build and plan for better futures.

To us, investing means empowering communities with the skills and tools they need to eventually stand on their own two feet. That’s how we measure a job well done.
